Dr. Lane Windham Wins the 2018 David Montgomery Award

Dr. Lane Windham ('15, History) has won this year's prestigious Organization of American Historians' David Montgomery Award with cosponsorship by the Labor and Working-Class History Association, for the best book on a topic in American labor and working-class history. Her recent book entitled Knocking on Labor’s Door: Union Organizing in the 1970s and the Roots of a New Economic Divide, counters the argument that the power of the labor movement declined in the 1970s as unions stopped organizing and workers turned away from unions.
