Hoxie, Robert Franklin (hŏkˈsē) [key], 1868–1916, American economist, b. Edmeston, W of Cooperstown, N.Y., Ph.D. Univ. of Chicago, 1905. He taught at the Univ. of Chicago from 1906 to 1916. A realistic interpreter of the changing economic system in the United States, he was noted for his work in labor history. As special investigator (1914–15) for the U.S. Commission on Industrial Relations he produced Scientific Management and Labor (1915). His Trade Unionism in the United States (ed. by L. B. Hoxie and Nathan Fine, 1917; 2d ed. 1923, repr. 1966), though incomplete, is his most important work.
