Descriptive Summary

Creator: Italian-American Labor Council
Title: Italian-American Labor Council Records
Dates [inclusive]: 1941-1996
Abstract: The Italian-American Labor Council (IALC) was formed in direct response to Mussolini's declaration of war against the United States in 1941. It lobbied successfully against the implementation of the Enemy Alien Act of 1942 which designated all German, Italian and Japanese nationals as enemy aliens. In the years after the Second World War, the IALC organized aid for post-war Italy. In the 1950s, it also played an instrumental role in forming the "Free Labor Movement" that opposed the Italian Communists and Communist-orientated labor organizations. These records include operational materials, clippings and correspondence of the IALC from its founding in 1941 to 1996.
