A City in Terror: Calvin Coolidge and the 1919 Boston Police Strike
Read and discuss Francis Russell’s new account of the 1919 Boston Police Strike. Overworked and underpaid, the Boston Police walked off the job one fateful day in September 1919. Russell discusses the “red scare” that saw all striking workers labeled Bolsheviks, a city of 700,000 in disarray without any police protection, and how these events catapulted Governor Calvin Coolidge to the national political stage and into the White House.
