Searching For a Part of History

During World War II thousands of women found jobs in American factories and shipyards. At Boeing, their efforts helped boost production from 60 planes per month in 1942 to an astounding 362 planes per month by March 1944. This photo of eight African-american "rosie the Riveters" surfaced when workers tore down a building on Boeing property. The women are standing in front of a Boeing B-29 at the Renton plant near Seattle, Wa. IAM District 751 is trying to find these women or members of their families as part of a Labor History Project. Contact Ron McGaha, District 751 administrative assistant at 206-764-0304 if you have any information.
