Abstract: Saul Mills was a union activist, PR representative and journalist born in New York in 1910. Between 1927 and 1936, Mills worked in varying capacities with a number of newspapers, including The New York Daily News,  The Brooklyn Daily Eagle,  The Brooklyn Standard Unionand  The City News Association. Mills' newspaper experience and his association with the noted newspaper columnist Heywood Broun gave rise to Mills' involvement in the labor movement. In 1934, he became a charter member of Broun's Newspaper Guild which led to Mills being dismissed from  The Eagle. Between 1936 and 1940, Mills worked as a public relations representative for CIO and AFL affiliated unions and later went into private PR practice. The collection includes: Mills' personal correspondence, Greater New York CIO Council administrative records, photographs and ephemera that document various aspects of Mills' work and life.
