Permanent URI for this collection

The School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University has amassed a significant number of films and videos to support teaching, extension, and research functions. Recorded or collected by the school's Audio-Visual Department, they were transferred to the Kheel Center, the school's archives, when the AV Department closed. Films explore topics such as arbitration and mediation, automation, child labor, collective bargaining, communication, compensation and benefits, cooperatives, corporate and labor leaders, globalization, human resource management, labor law, leadership, the NLRB, occupational safety and health, organized labor, performance appraisal, sexual harassment, substance abuse, and working conditions. The Kheel Center preserves analog recordings primarily in collections 4191 AV and 4191 F, and makes selected digitized recordings available here.

    Jimmy Hoffa Interview, Cornell University ILR School, April 1975
    Hoffa, James R.; Daniel, Cletus; Keeran, Roger R.; Morris, James O.; Risley, Robert F.; Julian, Robert R. (1975-04)
    James Riddle (Jimmy) Hoffa was interviewed at Cornell University’s ILR School in April 1975, only 3 months before he disappeared. Hoffa was on campus for a series of meetings and lectures and, according to Professor Cletus Daniel, Hoffa was asked for a filmed interview early that morning but he declined. Throughout the day’s meetings and discussions, Daniel continued to talk with Hoffa. During lunch, Daniel told Hoffa that he had been a Teamster, and showed Hoffa his separation card. Seeing that, Hoffa felt more comfortable with the idea of an interview and agreed to it. Because the interview was arranged at the last minute, the best video recording equipment was already in use. As a result, the sound and visual tracks on the original video recording are poor quality.
