Guy Alexander

During the Great Depression, in order to protect the membership and the finances of Local 292, members appointed Guy Alexander as their Financial Secretary, a position he would hold for 40 years.

During long periods of high unemployment, Guy Alexander helped unemployed members find work outside the trade. If he was unsuccessful at finding them work he would give them money from his own pocket so they could buy food or a load of coal to heat their homes. He even mortgaged his house in an effort to keep Local 292 afloat.

To honor Brother Alexander we have named our conference room after him and started a scholarship that bears his name. Local 292 received a wonderful gift from his grandnieces to be put toward the Scholarship fund. We are excited that Brother Alexander’s Legacy continues to help others.

Brothers and Sisters:

As many of you know, Local 1 in St Louis Missouri has taken on a challenging project. Local 1 is restoring the boarding house that Henry Miller stayed in while he and 8 other founding fathers organized the IBEW. For those who are unfamiliar with who Henry Miller is, Henry is the founder of the IBEW.

On February 9th, the members of Local 292 passed a motion to support Local 1 by purchasing a granite bench.  The bench will be a lasting feature of this very important piece of our history.

There are many ways to show support of this project. Local 292 would be happy to forward any personal donations to Local 1. Also, any member may, if they choose, send donations directly to Local 1.  Checks or money orders can be made payable to the Electrical Workerss Historical Society: IBEW Local 1, 5850 Elizabeth Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63110, or donate online at nbew-ibewmuseum.org.

If you choose to donate on your own, please see the attached link. There is a brief article and the list of funding levels. http://www.ibew.org/articles/15ElectricalWorker/EW1512/index.html

Please show support of this project as it is who we are and where it all began.
