BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Powers Hapgood was born December 28, 1899, the son of a progressive canning factory owner in Indianapolis, and his wife. He graduated from Phillips Academy in 1917, and from Harvard University in 1921.
Hapgood experienced life as part of the working class while working as a miner in Hibbing, Minnesota, on the Northern Pacific Railroad and in a Montana sugar beet factory. Working like this helped him to decide to dedicate his life to mobilizing the working-class.
In 1922 he went to work as an organizer for the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA). He worked in and out of the UMWA for most of the 1920's.
He married Mary Donovan, the Secretary of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee, on December 28, 1927. Powers Hapgood passed away on February 4, 1949.
