'The Mill' by Rade B. Vukmir

An uncommon wealth of information about our region

Sunday, December 05, 1999

By Bob Hoover, Post-Gazette Book Editor

 
 

The Mill

By Rade B. Vukmir

University Press of America
$42.00

   
 

Taken as a companion volume to “Portraits in Steel” is this scholarly account of J&L’s Aliquippa works by Vukmir, a physician whose family worked at the mill.

The book combines interviews, production records and historical photos to offer a full picture of the once-massive steel operation in Beaver County. The accounts of the workers lend a real human element to the story of how a once-dominant force vanished almost overnight.

Both of these books are essential reading for former J&L workers and industrial historians.
