"The 1934 West Coast Waterfront Strike (also known as the 1934 West Coast Longshoremen's Strike, as well as a number of variations on these names) lasted eighty-three days, and began on May 9, 1934 when longshoremen in every West Coast port walked out. The strike peaked with "Bloody Thursday" and the San Francisco General Strike which stopped all work in the major port city for four days and led ultimately to the settlement of the West Coast Longshoremen's Strike. The result of the strike was the unionization of all of the West Coast ports of the United States. The San Francisco General Strike of 1934, along with the Toledo Auto-Lite Strike of 1934 led by the American Workers Party and the Minneapolis Teamsters Strike of 1934 led by the Communist League of America, were important catalysts for the rise of industrial unionism in the 1930s, much of which was organized through the Congress of Industrial Organizations" "Herman Phleger, San Francisco attorney, began his law practice in the city in 1914, after graduation from the University of California, Berkeley, as a member of the illustrious class of 1912, and studying law at Boalt Hall and at Harvard Law School. As a specialist in international law, he served as counsel to many prominent business concerns in California and the west, and was appointed to several important government posts. In 1945 he served as associate director of the Legal Division of the U. S. Military Government for Germany, and, 1953-1957, as legal adviser, Department of State. He was also the U. S. Representative to the 13th General Assembly of the United Nations, 1958; U. S. Member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration under the Hague Treaty, 1957-1963, and again, 1969-1975; and chairman of the U. S. Delegation to the Antarctica Conference, 1959, that drafted the Antarctic Treaty. In his capacity as legal adviser to the Department of State, he attended many of the important international conferences, including the summit meeting at Geneva in 1955 and the discussions on the Suez Canal crisis in 1956.
