Title: Draft of statement on child labor
Date: 1915
Description: In this statement, the company claims that no child under the age limit of 14 and a half years was hired by Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills after the passage of the Child Labor Act. The company also states that at the time of the May 1914 strike, only 16 children between the ages of 12 and 14 were employed by the Mills. The company also denies the truth of reports that a 10 year old boy named Milton Nunally worked at the Mills. The statement claims that his mother falsified his age when he was hired. The boy was eventually fired for mischief.

The Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills Exhibit is a joint project between the Georgia Tech Library and Information Center's Archives and Records Management, Digital Initiatives, and Systems departments.
