Thai Jones -- author of A Radical Line: From the Labor Movement to the Weather Underground, One Family's Century of Conscience (Free Press, 2004) -- used multiple aliases before he reached the age of four. Since then, however, he has been on the up and up. A graduate of Columbia Journalism School, he worked as a reporter for Newsday before retreating back to campus. His research focuses on radical labor politics in U.S. history. At the RBML, he has helped process several collections, including The New Leader Records, as well as the papers of Ephraim London and Jason Rogers.
