According to West Virginia district attorney Reese Blizzard,
that would be Mary Harris Jones, aka "Mother Jones."
And just who was Mother Jones and why was she so dangerous? What
was Mother Jones' role in the American Railway Union's Pullman
Strike? What was her relation to the women's movement of the
early 20th Century? How did her radicalism relate to her Irish
heritage? How will her legacy and work with the miners' unions
be remembered at the Mother Jones Museum in Mt. Olive, Illinois?
And what was it with Gene Autry, anyway? In this episode of Talkin'
Socialism, Peg Strobel interviews Rosemary Feurer,
Associate Professor of History at Northern Illinois University
and Director of the Mother
Jones Heritage Project.
