Support the next stages of the 1919 Boston Police Strike Project! Project volunteers have researched each of the 1,142 men who participated in the strike, and now are working hard to review and continue to add information to the project’s database. To expand the volunteer effort and to support the development of an online search system that can handle complex queries and a wide range of user interactivity, we seek to raise approximately $80,000. Your contribution of any size will be warmly welcomed towards reaching that goal.

GETTING INVOLVED: In order to build an accurate picture of each officer’s life, we rely on volunteers, descendants, and community members to share information and photographs of strikers, and to support and assist in the ongoing work of the 1919 Boston Police Strike Project. Visit the 1919 Boston Police Strike Project site to learn more about how you can get involved by contributing information and photographs of strikers.
The 1919 Boston Police Strike Project is a collaboration between the Boston Police Department Archives and University Archives and Special Collections in the Joseph P. Healey Library at UMass Boston.
