    • Kim Munson Kim Munson (MA, SFSU) is a writer, art historian, independent curator and fine artist. Her writing has focused primarily on contemporary works on paper, the movement of comic art into museums, art and the law, and graphics used by the labor movement, such as union labels. Since 2008, she has been blogging about art, comics, and exhibitions at http://kmunson- mac.blogspot.com, which includes interviews with a wide range of artists and illustrators. Kim has contributed to several academic books, and her articles have been included in the International Journal of Comic Art and other publications. She is currently developing On Reflection, a book about the pioneering British feminist artist Margaret Harrison, and is co-authoring a book documenting the legal history of the 70 battle over who owns the iconic DC comics character Superman. Labor Archives Few regions can rival the rich, lively labor history of the San Francisco Bay Area. This history is preserved in primary source and vintage history materials at the Labor Archives and Research Center (LARC). Founded in 1985 by trade union leaders, historians, labor activists and university administrators, the Labor Archives is a unit of the J. Paul Leonard Library at San Francisco State University. The Labor Archives has an Advisory Board drawn from the labor, academic and community leaders of the Bay Area. LARC and its Director, Catherine Powell, were recently recognized with a special award from the Reference and Service Users Division of the American Library Association. LARC’s publication San Francisco Labor Landmarks Guide Book was one of the guiding inspirations of this project.
