A biography of Agnes Inglis.


Dione Miles told CA: "I worked for many years for Wayne State University, at the Reuther Library, which holds the archives of labor unions, politicians, and authors, and is the world's largest labor archive. Among other collections I processed the papers and letters of the Industrial Workers of the World and created a guide. In the course of writing my book, Something in Common: An IWW Bibliography, I also did much research in Washington, D.C., and at other universities.

"Currently I am working on a biography of Agnes Inglis, a member of the Industrial Workers of the World and, many years back, an archivist at the Labadie Collection at the University of Michigan."
