more intriguing, the existence of this book contradicts of the story
told on Page 212 by historian Marshall Sprague in his book, MONEY
MOUNTAIN (Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1953). Sprague reported
that after W. S. Stratton had read this specific volume he burned it in
the ash pit behind his house. Evidently the tale is apocryphal as
this book is in near fine condition, both inside and out, and enhanced
by a superb association inscription penned by Verner Reed.

mediators for President Woodrow Wilson and his special PRESIDENT'S MEDIATION
COMMISSION*, 1917 - 1918.
*[The President's Mediation Commission
represented a partial federal response to two aspects of wartime labor policy:
1) the spreading wave of strikes which interfered with the production of goods
deemed vital to the war effort; and, 2) the growth of labor radicalism
associated with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), which precipitated
widespread state and local repression of labor's rights. On the urging
of A.F. of L. President Samuel Gompers and of Secretary of Labor William B.
Wilson, the Commission was appointed by President Woodrow Wilson on September
19, 1917. The Commission consisted of two representatives of management, two
labor officials and Chairman William Wilson. Most important in establishing
the guidelines on which the Commission operated was Felix Frankfurter,
appointed as Commission secretary. These included the promotion of A.F. of
L.-style trade unions and industrial democracy and the elimination of
"subversive" IWW locals. Among the areas investigated by the
Commission were the copper mining areas of Arizona and Montana, the lumber
industry of the Pacific Northwest, telephone operators in San Francisco and
packinghouse workers in Chicago. The Commission's findings were subsequently
published as a special bulletin by the Dept. of Labor.]
