Published by Prologue Magazine
William “Big Bill” Haywood was a labor leader and prominent member of the Industrial Workers of the World (known also as “the Wobblies”) during the early 20th century. In 1917 over one hundred Wobblies were tried under the Espionage Act of 1917 for “conspiring to hinder the draft, encourage desertion, and intimidate others in connection with labor disputes.” He was sentenced to twenty years. A childhood accident cost Haywood his right eye. For the rest of his life he insisted on being photographed from his left profile. His Leavenworth mug shot is the only known photograph of Haywood with his entire face visible. Haywood was temporarily released while the case was appealed in 1921. He fled to Russia where he lived until his death.
