Identification Card Listings - 1940's Series

(Source: UE/Labor 91:6, Archives Service Center, University of Pittsburgh.)

    In the 1940's, workers at US Steel's National Works (sometimes known as the Tube Works) in McKeesport, were photographed for identification cards, which also provide social data on individual workers. The Archives Service Center is hereby making available a name index to its collection of these cards, numbering more than 10,000 in all, approximately 25% of which contain the abovementioned thumb-nail sized photographs. The social data on the cards have thus far been used for a variety of scholarly research projects: e.g. for a study and oral history on women crane operators at the National Works during WWII and for a book on Jews of Hungarian background who worked there.
    By combining cards belonging to members of a given, defined group, one can form conclusions about the connections between race/ethnicity and job classification or promotion, or about the geographic origins of selected groups. For example to learn about African-American women workers during World War II, type BF (for black female) and click through the index. Similarly, for nationality groups, try searching "Czech," "Italy" or "Mexico."  For large searches you may click on the 'view entire list' link so that you can have access to the entire alphabetical list.
