L-112 loses last charter member


L-112 charter member Harwell Moose is remembered for his union activism.

HARWELL MOOSE, 91, the last surviving charter member of Local 112 (Mobile, Ala.) passed away Feb. 21. Moose joined the Boilermakers union in 1933 as a helper, becoming a journeyman in 1937. Following the charter of Local 112 in 1938, Moose worked as an organizer, signing up new members. He also served the lodge as secretary-treasurer and taught at the local’s first welding school.

“Mr. Moose will be sadly missed by the members of our local,” said L-112 BM-ST Curtis Brooks. “His contribution to Local 112 and the Boilermakers will never be forgotten.”
