Biographical history

Charles Hibbert Millard was born in St. Thomas, Ontario when his father was working as a general repairman on the railroads. Millard became a carpenter. He served overseas during the Second World War with a battalion that was recruited from Muskoka, Ontario. After the war, he worked at General Motors in Oshawa and became involved with the United Farmers of Ontario, a newly formed political party. He later set up his own business to manufacture doors but the business failed during the Depression. He was able to regain employment at General Motors where he became active in union agitation. Eventually, after the settlement of the strike in Oshawa, he worked full-time for the Autoworkers Union.

Custodial history

The letter from Millard to Harry Waisglass of the Faculty of Business at McMaster contains information about the 1946 Stelco strike in Hamilton, Ontario. It was written on 11 March 1975.
