Free Tom Mooney! An Exhibition of the Yale Law Library\u27s Tom Mooney Collection.

By Lorne Bair, Hélène Golay and Michael Widener


In 1916, a bomb explosion was the pretext that San Francisco authorities needed to prosecute the militant left-wing labor organizer Tom Mooney on trumped-up murder charges. Mooney’s false conviction set off a 22-year campaign for his exoneration. The Yale Law Library, with a collection of over 150 items on the Mooney case, mounted an exhibition marking the centennial of Mooney\u27s arrest.
