The article presents the reminiscences of the 1970’s to 1990’s by two prominent historians of the textile industry in the Czech lands – Dr. Jaroslav Šůla and Pr. Vladimír Wolf. In those years they were both actively involved in the historical research of the textile industry in the Czech lands, primarily in the East Bohemian region. They were both among the important organizers of the science world – among editors and authors of many scientific publications, studies and anthologies, in particular the Flax industry (periodical, est. 1976) and its supplement (since 1981). Their memories are concluded with the early 1990s which, however, put an end to the scientific stations studying the history of the textile industry and also terminated the publishing of the Flax Industry magazine including its supplements.
