Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (F)
Fraser, Doug

Douglas Fraser is one of America's great labor leaders. He has been a metal finisher, a president of the United Automobile Workers (UAW), and a distinguished university professor. He has been an American statesman and has worked with Presidents of the United States. After all of his success, Fraser still prefers to be called "Doug."

Fraser's lifelong devotion to the labor movement began in a working class neighborhood of Glasgow, Scotland where he was born on December 16, 1916. Seeking a better life, the family moved to Detroit in 1922, where Fraser grew-up during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
