hosiery industry in Pennsylvania is the second in a series of studies 
of hours of work and earnings in the textile industry.* In 1920 the 
hosiery industry ranked second in value of products among the textile 
industries of the state. The importance of the hosiery industry in the

ployers of the state whose generous cooperation made this study pos- 
sible. It acknowledges also the valuable assistance of the Bureau of 
Statistics, William J. Maguire, Director, in the tabulation of the data.
