Iron Pants: Oregon's Anti-New Deal Governor, Charles Henry Martin
by Gary Murrell
In 1934, Oregon's new Democratic governor, Charles Henry Martin, began an attack on Northwest labor unions. After political defeat in 1938, Martin blamed his troubles on the National Labor Relations Board, accused FDR of being a Communist and Fascist, and counseled appeasement with Hitler. His military career, from 1887 to 1927, is equally intriguing.
