Method of Acquisition
In August 1982 Helen Raulston gave the archives two 16mm films of the spring 1929 strike at the American Bemberg and American Glanzstoff rayon plants, Elizabethton, Tennessee. The films were taken by the company photographer and given to Mrs. Raulston's husband, Clarence, upon Bemberg's closing in 1976.

There are notes in the collection file pertaining to conversations archivist Ellen Garrison had with donor Helen Raulston and former Bemberg/Glantzstoff employees Alice and Charles Bowman (probably while she was picking up the film). These notes contain some limited information about working conditions at the plant and may be viewed on request.
Marie Tedesco completed processing and the papers were opened for research in April 1987.
