Portrait from Wikipedia: Jo Labadie.

These are works by the American individualist Anarchist printer, poet, archivist and labor organizer, Charles Joseph Antoine (Jo) Labadie (1850-1933). Labadie was born to a frontier family in Paw Paw, Michigan but became best known as the Gentle Anarchist of Detroit, where he worked as a newspaper printer and devoted himself to local labor organizing and Anarchist propaganda.

Labadie’s vast collection of radical literature and labor pamphlets, newspapers, correspondence, and ephemera became the basis of the Labadie Collection at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, now one of the leading archives of Anarchist literature in the world.
