Dear Conrad, Greetings from Detroit --

I enjoy your postings of bits of working-class history. One term I never saw before is "candymen." It is also in the "Oakey Strike Evictions" referring to a gang that went with the sheriff to throw the evicted workers' goods into the street.

Could you explain this term to me?

Thanks -- Larry C.
