For Julie Gilgoff, Michael Weiner Scholarship for Labor Studies recipient, it was her grandfather that inspired her passion for the labor movement.
“Although we never met, I like to believe that I took after him,” Gilgoff said recently. Her grandfather, Max Gilgoff, was a leader in both the American Labor Party and the Teachers Guild, which was the predecessor to the United Federation of Teachers in New York’s public schools. Like her grandfather, Gilgoff also became a teacher some years after college.
