Title

Summary of Perry Knitting Co. Military Contracts, 1961

Description

The Perry Knitting Co. provided clothing and under for the US military during World Wars I and II. Those contributions had earned the factory special exemptions (on electricity rationing, for example) and draft deferments for many employees due to their status as essential workers. It's not known who created this summary document, or when; still, it suggests that military orders continued through the Cold War era and were a meaningful portion of the PKC's income. [Note: one dollar in 1961 is approximately equivalent to nine dollars today.]
