Eugene V Debs

Wednesday, August 29th 7p.m.
 
 Eugene V Debs IconEugene V. Debs was a close friend of James Whitcomb Riley. Hailed by many as the "champion of the American worker" - and denounced by others as an agitator - Debs (1855-1926) advocated nearly all of his life for many labor reforms, including 40-hour work weeks and anti-child labor laws, that were regarded as radical then. Tbday, the reforms often are taken for granted.
 
Presented by Allison Duerk, Executive Director of the EVD Historic Home in Terre Haute, IN.
