David Lee McMullen

University Press of Florida

The first weeks of the Loray strike was crucial, in which the actions of local business and civic leaders helped to turn local citizens against the strikers and their union representatives. This, however, was one of the most important aspects of the strike, because it was through the early vilification of Dawson, Beal, and the other strike leaders, that local public opinion was so dramatically shaped against the striking workers. In addition to calling out the militia, the mill owners began an intense propaganda campaign attacking the union and its leaders.
