Science and Engineering Workforce Project (SEWP)



The Labor and Worklife Program is supported in part by the Meyer Kestnbaum Fund for Labor and Industry, established in honor of Meyer Kestnbaum (1896-1960), president of Hart, Schaffner, and Marx, by his family and friends—a group that included both his company’s management and shareholders, and the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America. The donors agreed in seeing the fund as an opportunity to support the Harvard community’s various activities in the field of industrial relations, industrial affairs and the problems and opportunities of industry, labor and government in a changing world.
