Purpose of this Study: since the Civil War, the negro has been an Increasingly Important factor in industrial relations. After a short period of aggressive unionism, (1866-1886) his brief and localised sphere of activities disappeared with the ascendancy of the American Federation of Labor and he began to occupy the role of a sub-standard worker, which is still largely his position. During the last twenty years, however, negro leadership in the field of labor has developed, Some of It has been aggressive and enterprising, other portions hesitant, conservative, and formed on a basis of expediency, The subject of this thesis falls in one of these categories or in an adaptation of them. It thus becomes the purpose of this treatise to study minutely the role and activities of C.W. Rice and thereby to arrive at an evaluation of his leadership.
