A Message from the President

Greetings, fellow Steelworkers’ Archives members and friends. We are now entering barbecue season. Our “Steelwalker” walking tours kicked off from the Visitor Center at SteelStacks on April 11th.

Past President Dennis Pearson led the tour, with Richie Check and Jill Ruch assisting him. Our group is fortunate to have these people who come forward to assist in the events which we run. I thank them. 

As many already know, the Archives is a leader when it comes to providing expertise in the narrative and technical signage needed for the Hoover-Mason Trestle (HMT). We are part of the Bethlehem Heritage Coalition providing historical interpretation of the operation, not only of Bethlehem Steel but also the various shops and departments.

Along with the Steelworkers’ Archives, the coalition members are Lehigh University South Side Initiative; Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites; South Bethlehem Historical Society; National Canal Museum and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor; and National Museum of Industrial History.
