1Title:  Federal Knitting Mills Company Records     
 Creator:  Federal Knitting Mills Company 
 Dates:  1907-1939 
 Abstract:  The Federal Knitting Mills Company was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1905 by several Jewish businessmen. The company produced knit goods, including sweaters, and also supplied fabric to the garment-making industry. The company's national accounts included Sears, Roebuck & Co., Montgomery Ward, and Marshall Field & Co. At its height, the company employed five hundred people at its 125,000 square foot plant. Following the passage of the National Labor Relations Act in 1937, several unions attempted to replace the Cooperative Workers Association, the company union for Federal Knitting Mills. An ensuing strike related to this matter seriously strained the company's finances. Federal Knitting Mills dissolved in December 1937. The collection consists of audit reports, balance sheets, correspondence, legal documents, minutes, newspaper clippings, and a scrapbook.
