UE Archivist David Rosenberg describes the artifacts and records housed at the UE/Labor Archives at the University of Pittsburgh to an Elderhostel group who spent Nov. 8 exploring the legacy of "Electric Valley" near Pittsburgh. The group also heard from Dr. Mark McColloch, the first UE Archivist and academic dean at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, who explained how the Archives was set up in 1975 at the direction of then-UE Genl. Sec.-Treas. James Matles; he offered a concise history of the electrical industry in western Pennsylvania. The group, which toured the site of the former East Pittsburgh Westinghouse works organized by UE, included Vincent Vingle, retired chairman of the IUE-Westinghouse Conference Board.
