National Labor College (MD)

Ry Rivard authored an article on November 14, 2013 exploring the announced closure of National Labor College.  The institution was founded in 1969 and was dedicated as the George Meany Labor Studies Center in 1974.  The name was changed in 1997 to National Labor College.  The name was again changed in 2000 to George Meany Labor Studies Center-the National Labor College and then to National Labor College-George Meany Campus in 2004.


Another article, "National Labor College to close," in People's World, November 15, 2013, provides additional details.



An article, "A Campus Built by Labor is Going on the Block," by Eugene L. Meyer appeared in the July 31, 2012 New York Times.
