Whiting Williams was a prosperous, educated, turn-of-the-century Ohio businessman who adopted the guise of a blue-collar worker in order to learn firsthand about labor conditions. He used this information to improve labor conditions and salary during an era marked by the birth of modern industrialization, labor-management dichotomy, labor unions, strikes of historic proportions, strikebreakers, massive unemployment, and formal labor-management relations.
