Abstract

In 1902 Walter Gordon Merritt entered the national labor scene as counsel for the hat companies in reaction to the hatters' union membership's boycott of non-union hats. The recording contains a pro-management perspective on the Danbury Hatters Case (Loewe v. Lawlor, 208 U.S. 274 (1908), 235 U.S. 522 (1915)) and Danbury of early 20th century. Tape contains interview and appears to have previously contained a recording of Sikora reading aloud.
