In 1914, Finnish supporters of industrial unionism founded the Socialist Publishing Company in Duluth, Minn., and began publication of the Sosialisti, a daily paper. In 1916, its name was changed to Teollisuustyolainen (The Industrial Worker); a law suit was brought against it, and it ceased publication later that year. In 1917, it reappeared as the Industrialisti, published by the newly formed Worker's Socialist Publishing Company, which also published annuals such as the Industrialistin Joulu and Tyovaen Taskukalenteri as well as books by leaders within the Finnish I.W.W. movement. The Worker's Socialist Publishing Company was closely allied with the Work People's College in Duluth. In 1954, the publishing company's name was again changed, to the Worker's Publishing Company. In 1975, the Industrialisti, one of the last foreign-language I.W.W. newspapers published in the United States, ceased publication.
