History notes:

The Finnish Workers' Federation of the United States was organized in 1927 and incorporated in New York City in 1932. It was the political, cultural and educational organization of the Finnish American Communists and actively supported militant labor unions, farmers' organizations, the cooperative movement and the unemployed movement. In 1941, the Federation joined the International Workers' Order, as the Finnish American Mutual Aid Society. When the International Workers' Order dissolved in the early 1950's, Federation activity continued under leadership of the district committees.
