Three of the collections come from the holdings of Catholic University of America: Papers of Terence V. Powderly and Papers of John W. Hayes, focusing on the Knights of Labor, and Papers of John Mitchell, focusing on the United Mine Workers and the AFL. Other collections in this module come from the holdings of Wisconsin Historical Society and the University of Maryland.
