Scope and Content Note

Includes correspondence, reports, flyers and clippings documenting Moe Biller's years as president of the New York Metro Area Postal Union (APWU, Local 10). Especially well represented are materials reflecting health and safety hazards in the industry, and the union's energetic attempts to improve working conditions. A smaller amount of material (mostly convention records, daily schedules, expense records, and committee materials) relate to Biller's tenure as international president of the American Postal Workers Union. Also included are a range of records and printed ephemera documenting the Depression-era history of U.S. postal workers and their organizations; these were given to Moe Biller by various members of the APWU over the years.
