William Adelman

William J. (Bill) Adelman 1928-2009 was a professor of Labor and Industrial Relations at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and was a founding member and vice president of the Illinois History Labor Society. He was one of the few academics offering a labor history perspective in the Chicago region during the 60s and 70s. His lectures, seminars and tours to labor sites became extremely popular, particularly in the labor union community. His content was always designed to produce the maximum understanding of the historical roots of contemporary issues, and his encyclopedic knowledge of the subject was legendary.
