Description

This letter dated May 25, 1950, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to US Major General Lewis A. Pick, outlines R.D. Kollman’s claim of discrimination in employment at the Garrison Dam project. The letter quotes Kollman’s claim that residents of North Dakota have a difficult time procuring employment at the Garrison Dam project while “there is no trouble for an outsider to get employment.” Kollman’s contention extends to those in labor unions where “union gangster organizers are standing right there.” Langer calls for Pick’s attention to Kollman’s claims and asks Pick for his advice with the situation.
