This volume is the third in a series of four which treat various aspects of the labor movement in Maine in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The history of organized labor in Maine has been largely ignored by the State's historians. This volume represents an effort to correct this deficiency and to add to a more complete understanding of the forces, events, and personalities that have shaped Maine's history.

Charles Scontras was born in Buffalo, New York in 1929. He was educated in the public school system of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, before earning a B.S in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire. He turned to scholarly pursuits after earning his M. Ed, followed by an M.A. and Ph. D. in History, from the University of Maine.
A long-time resident of Maine, he lived in Orono for 40 years; he taught at the University for 36 years, with positions in the Modern Society, History, and Political Science Departments, and in the Honors Program. He now resides in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. He has traveled in England, France, and Canada.
Before embarking on his long scholarly career, Dr. Scontras owned and managed retail shoe stores and shoe repairing services. It was doubtless this experience, along with his background as a son of Greek immigrants, that endowed him with an interest in working-class culture. Today he is widely known in Maine as one of the foremost authorities on Maine labor history.
Dr. Scontras has a long list of publications to his credit. His books chronicle events that have been largely omitted from Maine history, and thus constitute rare resources for anyone interested in the story of Maine's past.
