This HCTAR Web site presents research undertaken with some financial support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation through HCTAR, the Harvard Center for Textile and Apparel Research. Support for some of the research has also been received from other organizations, including several of the faculties of Harvard University and Boston University, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Labor, the University of Miami, and Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. We acknowledge with gratitude the support all of the support that we have received.
In many case individuals undertook research reported here on their own time, though they were affiliated with one of the organizations mentioned above.
This HCTAR site is not an inclusive list of all of the papers, article, and books written by the researchers listed in the About section of this site, rather just the research receiving at least some support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Most researchers associated with HCTAR maintain other sites, a good place to learn more about work which might not fall within the Center’s focus.
