||United Hatters, Cap, and Millinery Workers International Union Records
||The United Hatters Cap and Millinery Workers International Union (UHCMW) was formed
in 1934 by the amalgamation of United Hatters of North America (UHNA) and the Cloth
Hat, Cap and Millinery Workers International Union (CHCMW). About two thirds of the
collection consists of the separate records of these two unions prior to their merger,
and of records of joint bodies established in the decade prior to the merger. The
materials pertaining to the Danbury Hatters' Case comprise about one fifth of the
collection. The remainder consists of records of earlier unionizing efforts among
hatters, and of the UHCMW in the decades following the merger, and a set of of primary
source research materials and notes compiled by Charles H. Green for his book
The Headgear Workers. The collection contains minutes, scrapbooks (financial and membership records),
clippings, ephemera, photographs, histories and biographies, and legal documents.
