1. The International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union convention met in Boston, May 5-17, 1924.

2. That is, the conference held May 21, 1924, to discuss SG's plan for organizing women workers (see "Excerpts from the Minutes of a Meeting on Organizing Women in Industry," May 21, 1924, in The Samuel Gompers Papers, Vol. 12).

3. SG did not appoint such a committee. In its report on organizing women to the 1924 AFL convention, however, the Executive Council recommended ongoing educational work to bring about "better understanding of the problem of women in industry and the necessity of constructive action" (AFL, Proceedings, 1924, p. 64). The Council's recommendation was adopted unanimously.
