The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) has signed an agreement to permanently transfer its archival collection to GW. Housed in the IBT Labor History Research Center (LHRC) in Gelman Library, the Teamsters archive contains over 1,300 linear feet of historical materials documenting the history of the organization, including paper records, audiovisual materials, and artifacts dating to as early as 1883. The core of the labor collections in the LHRC, the Teamsters Archive is available to students, faculty, and outside researchers through the Special Collections Research Center. “We are delighted that the Teamsters have made GW the permanent home of their archive,” said Geneva Henry, dean of Libraries and Academic Innovation. “The Teamsters continue to be an active partner in supporting academic study of the labor movement. While their archive has been on loan here for many years, this agreement ensures ongoing access to these rich research materials.
This collection is open to the public and available for research in Gelman Library’s Special Collections Research Center. Please contact [email protected] to make an appointment to view these materials.
