Biography

Before becoming International Longshoremen's Association President, Pacific Coast District (District 38), William Lewis worked on San Francisco docks as a longshoreman for nearly 25 years. In 1933 he became a business agent for the newly chartered ILA 38-79. In the short space of six months the organization grew from nothing to a claimed membership of nearly 4,000.
