Debra E. Bernhardt (1953 - 2001) built an extensive collection of documents, photographs, and oral histories about working people as head of the Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives at New York University. She was lauded by the New York Times for her "energetic career as an archivist helping to remember where everyone else came from."Rachel Bernstein researches and teaches NYC working class history. She directs LaborArts, a non-profit using art, images and events to bring a broad audience to this often overlooked history. She taught in the graduate program in public history at NYU for 25 years, and continues to work on public history projects there and at Brooklyn College's Graduate Center for Worker Education.
