    From the Labor Archives of Washington: 

    Exhibit: "An Injury to One is an Injury to All": The Legacy of the Everett Massacre of 1916 and the Industrial Workers of the World in the Pacific Northwest
    Dates: December 5, 2016-January 29, 2017

    Location: Allen Library North Lobby, University of Washington Suzzallo Allen Libraries

    About the Exhibit:
    This exhibit was designed to use surrogates of photographs and documents from collections in the Labor Archives of Washington and collections at related repositories. This ensures that the originals can be preserved and secured while sharing the information contained in them with a broader public, enabling the exhibit to be hosted at a variety of community venues. Portions of the exhibit have already been displayed at the Pacific Northwest Labor History Association Conference in May of 2016 in Portland, Oregon and the Everett Massacre Commemoration Centennial Boat Tour in November 12, 2016 on board the historic steamship the Virginia V.
    The exhibit is lightweight and portable and is mounted on hardware of backdrop frames from a photographer’s studio to facilitate moving it and installing it in diverse venues. The exhibit and boat tour were filmed as part of an upcoming segment on the Labor Archives' collections on the Everett Massacre on the UW360 television program.


    "Why are Some of the Cases Empty?"
    To keep the content dynamic, additional materials will be added to the exhibit during its run. Keep your eyes peeled for books that relate to the collections, a digitized television program interview with the last surviving Everett Massacre participant, and ephemera from the IWW collection.
