ABSTRACT
The influence of union leaders in economic and political affairs is unquestionably strong. Is there associated with this influence the social recognition which usually accompanies the possession of power? Are union officials accorded the prestige given to business and professional men? Such is the question raised in this article, which seeks a measure of the social recognition accorded union leaders by examination of the extent of their inclusion in biographical sources; the frequency of their appointment to public office; their participation on boards of universities, corporations, and foundations; their membership in community organizations.
