Excerpt from The Metric Versus the English System of Weights and Measures: Research Report Number 42, October, 1921

The National Industrial Conference Board presents herewith a report on "The Metric versus the English System of Weights and Measures." The report deals with a question of vital and timely importance, not only to the industrialist but to every citizen of the United States. Specifically the question is: "Shall the Metric System Be Substituted by Compulsion for the English System in This Country?" Agitation toward this end has been carried on during many years, and bills for the compulsory adoption of the metric system have from time to time been introduced in Congress. Bills of that nature are now before the House and Senate.

Because of the importance and far-reaching economic bearings of the subject, the Conference Board has prepared this report in order that American industry might be aided by a clear presentation of facts and arguments in determining what its attitude should be towards the proposed change in systems.

The report is presented in three parts. The first deals with the history and present national status of the English, metric and other systems of weights and measures. The second analyzes the application of the English and metric systems to various specialized fields, such as science, engineering, manufacturing and trade. The third sets forth in a judicial spirit, without taking a position either one way or the other, the arguments advanced by advocates of the metric and the English systems respectively, for and against the compulsory adoption of the metric system by the United States.

The Board was fortunate in being guided in its work by an able Advisory Committee composed of the following men of broad business experience and scientific attainment:

E. M. Herr, Chairman,
President, Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company,
East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
