Faces in the 1912 Bread & Roses Strike: HELEN KELLER. Early in the Lawrence, MA mill strike Arturo Giovannitti, Joseph Caruso, and Joseph Ettor were jailed, charged with complicity in the death of striker Anna LoPizzo, shot by a militia rifle. The 3 men were nowhere near the scene of her death and their trial, starting in late Sept.1912 drew international attention. Prominent speaking in their defense was Keller, pictured here.
