Mary Harris "Mother" Jones is filmed by a newspaper reporter on the occasion of her 100th birthday while living in Adelphi, MD in 1930. This is the only known moving image and audio recording of the "Grand Old Champion of Labor." Mother Jones was a tireless advocate for workers and children and her work as an organizer for mine workers is particularly noted. The footage was taken from a longer video produced to commemorate the dedication of a Prince George's County, MD school named for and dedicated to Mother Jones.
