COVER PHOTO: Olin R. Ruth (with straw boater) and a contingent of armed guards are pictured at a Farmington mine, ca. 1920. Privately hired guards figured prominently in West Virginia labor's efforts to organize. In many ways, these guards represent the clash of established authority with new social and political ideas.
