Preview

From a personal perspective, Ellen Dawson's formative years remain shrouded in almost total mystery, and yet from another perspective they are some of the most researched in Scottish labor history. Red Clydeside has been examined by numerous scholars, augmenting a detailed understanding of those turbulent times, and the labor unrest that occurred in Dawson's backyard. Thus, to understand better the forces that shaped Dawson during these critical years, years so important to forming her personality and character, things should be looked at from a larger angle.
