In Memoriam
Michael J. Quill spent his life in the cause of Industrial Unionism. He died as he lived. Fighting for the human dignity of workers everywhere - - - against poverty without regard to race, creed, color or National origin. Toward these ends he devoted his life to the building of the Transport Workers Union of America. It is great legacy. As his life is our great inspiration to continue his work.
