The Struggle for Life in Los Angles County--RARE (1936)
Self-published (?) 1936 - Rare Work on Depression Los Angeles, 1936--No Copies in WorldCat. Reimer, Edward H. and Edward Elliott. The Struggle for Life in Los Angles County. Published by Edward Reimer (825 West 8th St), Los Angeles. Printed on 11x8.5" sheets in purple ink, 107pp, running about 60,000 words. Presumably Reimer (born in NYC in 1902 according to the 1940 Census) printed the document, as well--this is an early mimeographic reproduction production, and, probably of very limited reproduction This seems also to be one of the copies from the Copyright Office, (serial A 208715, July 6, 1936), which then became part of the "Pamphlet Collection" of the Library of Congress before I purchased that collection some time ago.+++There are no copies located in WorldCat/OCLC+++ This work is a dedicated Leftie appraisal of L.A. In the Depression, mostly (it seems) from 1932 to 1934. A reading of the table of contents will pretty much tell you where writers' sensibilites were, which was for access to jobs, fair pay to those who were working, humane treatment to those not able to find jobs, supporting organizing and unions, and a push towards relief for the destitute and homeless. This is clearly seen in the chapter on the “June 1st Riot”, which took place at the Law Building at 139 N. Broadway over the poor treatment of the poor and the ignoring of the RWPU (Relief Workers' Protective Union). There is also a chapter on the Hunger March (“on the atrocities against the poor”), the L.A. Hoovervilles (there were many Hoovervilles that were set up all across the country), the “C.W.A” (Civil Works Administration) in L.A., “the Struggle Against Forced Labor Camps”, keeping May Day (1934), and so on.
