May 14 2008 Today in History Newsletter


Greetings, everyone!

One of my loyal readers asked if I would do an article on Nylon Stockings Day…so I did. It was very fascinating to research and I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Nylon Stocking Day (May 15, 1940)
Prior to 1940, women's hosiery consisted of wool, cotton, or silk stockings. But, with an important discovery made by Julian Hill and Wallace Carothers, the legs of American women were changed and the developments have not slowed down.
