Heights Hero Profiled in NY Daily News

NY Daily News writer Clem Richardson profiles Brooklyn Heights resident/labor organizer Harry Kelber who is planning on running again for AFL-CIO vice president next year:

NY Daily News: Harry Kelber’s…: “But I will make this pledge,” Kelber said with a grin as he stood in the Brooklyn Heights apartment he has lived in for 40 years. “If elected, I will not run for another term!”

Thanks to his seven grandchildren, who he said are always asking him what he does, Kelber has written his memoirs, “My 70 Years In The Labor Movement” (Labor Educator Press, 2008).

The book follows Kelber from his birth in an 11th St. tenement on Manhattan’s lower East Side to his speech at the 1995 AFL-CIO convention and beyond.
