The Teamsters History Project has produced a pictorial publication to commemorate the centennial of the birth of James R. Hoffa.  Titled James R. Hoffa Remembered the book depicts Hoffa from his early years as a Teamsters organizer, his rise to prominence as a Central States Conference of Teamsters officer to his time as General President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (1957-1971).  The current IBT General President James P. Hoffa provides a poignant preface to the book.  To obtain free copies of James R.
