Kentucky Progressivism

Description:

This project focuses on the early twentieth century social and political reform movements in Kentucky, especially in Louisville and other urban areas.

Among those interviewed, most were employees of the Louisville Varnish Company or the Louisville Courier-Journal newspaper. They discuss Louisville from the early 1900s to 1940 and the lives and careers of Patrick Henry Callahan and Rovert Worth Bingham, Sr. Callahan (1866-1940) was president of the Louisville Varnish Company and served on the staffs of two Kentucky governors. He worked for the idea that labor should share in the management and profits of the industry. Judge Bingham (1871-1937), president of the Courier-Journal and Louisville Times Company and publisher of both papers, mayor of Louisville, and United States ambassador to England, sought to improve conditions for the farmer.
