CURRENT ISSUE - March 2016
Beginning in the 1890s, Wayne Knitting Mills grew from a small manufacturer of full-fashioned hosiery (shaped to fit the left and right foot as well as the leg) to a major employer and economic force in the city of Fort Wayne. Author Nancy Brown looks at how the 1890 McKinley Tariff encouraged local drugstore owner Theodore Thieme to travel to Germany and import knitting machinery and skilled workers from the city of Chemnitz back to his hometown of Fort Wayne. Brown also studies Germany’s response to Thieme’s perceived encroachment on one of its most successful manufacturing sectors, thereby highlighting both the local and international effects of U.S. tariff legislation in the late nineteenth century.
Above: Thieme was a drugstore owner before he ventured into hosiery manufacturing (1942). Below: Women in the factory looping room (1942).
