Abstract: P. B. Kennedy [3] studied lacunary Fourier series whose generating functions are of bounded variation on a subinterval $ I$ of $ [ - \pi ,\pi ]$ and satisfy a Lispschitz condition of order $ \alpha $ on $ I$. We show that the conclusion of one of his theorems on the absolute convergence of Fourier series remains valid when the function is merely of bounded $ r$th variation in $ I$ and belongs to a class $ \operatorname{Lip}(\alpha ,p)$ in $ I$. Our results also generalize three theorems of S. M. Mazhar [4].
