Abstract
The study of the dramatic relationship between Woodrow Wilson and labor led me into a field, rich in historical implications—a veritable harvest inviting the proverbial gleaner. Being a solitary, though willing, gleaner, I paid my obeisance to necessity which demanded that I limit my horizons. As Wilson’s second administration was overshadowed by the pressure of the world conflict, I fastened my choice upon the years, 1912 to 1916, years which involved both Wilson and labor. Labor, limited in this paper to the interests of organized groups, was to bridge the gap between adolescence and adulthood; Wilson was to be revealed as another Moses, called from the comparative quiet and seclusion of the university circles to be the leader of a great Nation. The problems which confronted Wilson and labor were problems of America.
