Dawson's Final Years

(p.178) 20 Dawson's Final Years

David Lee McMullen

University Press of Florida

Dawson made her last known speech as a labor activist in 1931 when the Great Depression was well under way. No longer a member of the Soviet-controlled Communist Party, it appears that Dawson, like so many American workers of the time, focused on her family and their survival. From the available records, it is clear she continued working in the Passaic area until her retirement in 1966. During this thirty-five-year period, she married, endured the death of her mother and her older sister, Mary, assisted several of her Scottish relatives in moving to the United States, and returned to her native Scotland on brief holidays.
