Abstract The National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers was founded in 1905 as the National Association of Hosiery and Underwear Manufacturers. By 1933, the organization dropped its activities related to underwear manufacture and changed its name to the National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers (NAHM), which merged with the Southern Hosiery Manufacturers' Association in 1956. In 1999, NAHM merged with the Carolina Hosiery Association to form the Hosiery Association, which represents the manufacturers of more than 85 percent of the hosiery produced in the United States, providing its members with lobbying, statistical, and public relations services, and organizing industry conferences and trade shows. Records of the National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers, 1918-1996, include minutes of meetings of the board of directors; programs, proceedings, and other items relating to annual meetings and conferences; membership records; other papers; and videotapes of conferences in the early 1990s and of presentations on issues of interest to hosiery manufacturers. Topics include the organization's membership and financial affairs, government policy affecting the hosiery industry, labor issues, costs and prices, hosiery industry standards, research projects, and public relations. The bulk of the materials relate to the National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers, but there are also records of predecessor organizations--the National Association of Hosiery and Underwear Manufacturers and the Southern Hosiery Manufacturers Association--and of related meetings, such as Hosiery Industry Conferences.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

Founded in 1905 as the National Association of Hosiery and Underwear Manufacturers, by 1933, the organization focused nearly all of its research, conferences, and other services on the hosiery industry. In view of this emphasis on hosiery and of the fact that there was a separate, active organization of underwear manufacturers, the organization decided in 1933 to drop its activities related to underwear manufacture and change its name to the National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers (NAHM). The National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers merged with the Southern Hosiery Manufacturers' Association on 1 January 1956.

In 1999, the National Association of Hosiery Manufacturers merged with the Carolina Hosiery Association to form the Hosiery Association. The Hosiery Association represents the manufacturers of more than 85 percent of the hosiery produced in the United States, providing its members with lobbying, statistical, and public relations services, and organizing conferences and trade shows.
