We mark the passing of David Montgomery today at the age of 84. David was one of the most influential historians of the U.S. working class, a long time trade union activist, and a mentor and inspiration to generations of scholars and students. His scholarship shaped the American Social History Project’s work as did his example as a an educator who never sought solace, refuge, or the privilege of the ivory tower.

Jon Wiener’s remembrance on The Nation blog succinctly captures the man.
