Sandy Polishuk

Oral historian Sandy Polishuk found a unique subject when she began her project with the little old lady who seemed to be involved with so many significant events in Northwest labor history. Author Elinor Langer remarks, “Sandy Polishuk’s Sticking to the Union is the best kind of oral history, bringing to life a person and a era quickly passing of out reach. A grassroots tour through twentieth-century …history, it is supported by extensive research amplifying and at times challenging Julia Ruuttila’s own reflections. The interplay between the voices of the older subject and the younger author is one of the most satisfying features of the book.”
