Harvey O'Connor (1897-1987) was a seminal radical journalist and labor historian who documented the lives of both rich and poor in America. His early work exposed the greed of the depression-era "robber barons." He was equally committed to documenting workers' struggles, and was sentenced for contempt for defying the McCarthyite witchhunt of the 1950s. In 1982, Wobbly researcher Eleanor Walden interviewed Harvey O'Connor in regards to the Centralia Massacre.
