||John Francis O'Donnell Papers
||John Francis O'Donnell (1907-1993) was a New York City labor lawyer for 55 years.
Over the course of his career, O'Donnell achieved many victories for transit and postal
workers. The bulk of O'Donnell's papers relate to his work as general counsel for
the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU), though his work with the American Postal
Workers Union and various other unions also comprises a significant portion of the
collection. O'Donnell's daughter, Eileen Ginn, used his papers when researching for
her biography on O'Donnell, and some of her correspondence and research files, including
a number of oral histories she conducted, are present in the collection.
