July 19 (Sunday) 1:00 PM (Free) Labor Archives and Research Center - SFSU 480 Winston Dr. SF. Presentation by Kim Munson. How did the arm and hammer end up on all those baking soda boxes? Art Historian Kim Munson shares her investigation of the origins of the arm & hammer from Greco-Roman myth and its role as an early union labor icon to its current usage as the Socialist Labor Party emblem and baking soda trademark.

  • shannabrawner Shanna Brawner I believe my grandfather's brother drew the arm & hammer for early advertising. My grandfather just passed away this week at 92 years old. I wonder what I will find out in the next few weeks as we go through things. He was also an amazing artist like his brother. 1 year ago

  • kim_munson Kim Munson, writer, researcher, art historian, curator at Munson Art Consulting This slideshow has been getting a lot of traffic lately. Thank you whoever you are. If you are interested in this type of history, this analysis of the arm & hammer is part of a larger book project I'm researching about the US union label movement. Check out http://www.mg-km.com/labels.html for more info. 4 years ago
