Erwin Baur died last night December 1, 2016 at 101 years old. Erwin was 
a tireless fighter for the working class, labor unions, and socialism. 
He placed himself deep in the trenches, modest, but intensely dedicated 
to promoting social change and the cause of labor. We owe to him and 
people like him much of the progress that was made in the US around 
working conditions and workers rights in the 1930s and later on. Born in 
Hilden (Düsseldorf) Germany, he was brought to North America at age 11 
by his parents and after years of work in Ohio and Michigan retired to 
California where he died. Erwin Baur Presente!
