Mamie Laberge

I am Joe Manning, an author and historian. I am the creator of the Lewis Hine Project. I track down and interview descendants of some of the child laborers that Hine photographed, in order to tell the stories of how the lives of these children turned out. I have been successful for over 200 children. The girl in this photo was Mamie Laberge. I tracked down and interviewed her grandchildren, and the story of her and her family is amazing.
