About the Author:

JOHN R. COMMONS [1862 1945] was a professor of economics at the University of Wisconsin. He was the author and editor of numerous works, and established his reputation with his editorial contributions to A Documentary History of American Industrial Society (1910 1911). He was the author of The Distribution of Wealth (1893), Institutional Economics (1934) and co-author of the History of Labor in the United States
(1918 1935). Commons drafted much of the nationally influential labor legislation for the state of Wisconsin that gave unions legal privileges, offered compulsory unemployment insurance to workers and established the first system of workers compensation in the United States. Due to these path-breaking reforms he is considered by many to be the spiritual father of the Social Security Act.
