From the colophon "... In my many years of being involved with fine printing, this project has been a most challenging one; the combination of offset lithography and woodcut within the same image, created problems that I could not have solved without the tremendous help of our Master Printer "extraordinaire", Technical Specialist, and Computer Programmer, John Mastracchio, as well as his associates, Cliff Meador and Ilse Schreiber."

The Loray Mill in Gastonia, North Carolina was a notable strike from 1929. The workers did not get their goals of better working conditions and higher wages, however it caused controversy with the public and politicians giving a greater rise to the Labor Movement.
