June 18, 1910: The stage is set for the famous anti-picketing ordinance approved by the City Council in July 1910. For further reading, I would recommend Grace Heilman Stimson’s “Rise of the Labor Movement in Los Angeles,” published in 1955 by the University of California Press. Stimson’s book is a bit dry, but offers a far more measured, scholarly account than Louis Adamic’s 1931 “Dynamite: The Story of Class Violence in America,” and the books that rely heavily on his work, Morrow Mayo’s 1933 “Los Angeles” and Carey McWilliams’ 1946 “Southern California: An Island on the Land.”
