Miss Lucy of the CIO
The Life & Times of Lucy Randolph Mason, 1882–1959
By John A. Salmond
University of Georgia Press
A proud descendent of leading families of the South, Mason was a feminist, social activist, and spokesperson for the CIO. Salmond examines her career, surprisingly liberal beliefs, and ability to use other people’s stereotypes of an elite Southern lady for the benefit of working people’s causes. Still, Mason played a relatively minor role in the dramas of labor and the South, and Salmond has not managed to make her life exciting nor found sources that probe the drama of her contradictory roles and values.
