Scope and Content
A member of the famous Du Pont Family, Ethel B. Du Pont was a labor journalist and activist with strong and lasting interest and involvement in the labor movement in Kentucky. Papers primarily reflect her involvement with the labor movement. Those that do not are personal correspondence, lecture notes as an economics teacher at the University of Louisville, house renovation plans, bills, literary efforts, and Louisville Arts Center Association material. Du Pont's labor activities included the Kentucky Federation of Teacher's, Workers Education Council, Louisville Labor League for Political Education, Kentucky Federation of Labor, the NAACP, Kentucky Conference of Community Leaders, and her column in the Louisville Times entitled "With Labor's Ranks." Her column ran from 1938 to 1951 and covered labor news and issues in Kentucky, and national labor issues which affected Kentucky. Copies of Du Pont's columns and labor research, and correspondence associated with it comprise a large portion of her papers. Also, newspaper clippings and Du Pont's unpublished labor stories.
