This 1917 report on the conditions of the millinery industry, or the trade of making women's hats, functions as a general study of problems more or less common to all industries characterized by seasonal fluctuations in employment. Two separate but often overlapping inquiries were conducted to secure the data presented in this book, involving the study of wages, education, and the particular conditions surrounding a seasonal occupation.

MARY VAN KLEECK was director of the Division of Industrial Studies of the Russell Sage Foundation.
