Abstract:

Burlington Industries, Inc., founded by James Spencer Love (1896-1962), opened its first cotton manufacturing plant in 1924 in Burlington, N.C. The company found success throughout the 1900s, focusing on the development of diverse products, innovative technology, and a well-trained workforce. The company continued to grow until the 1990s, when significant financial losses led to its bankruptcy filing in 2001, and subsequent purchase in 2003 and merging with Cone Mills in 2004 into International Textile Group (ITG). The collection consists of the records of Burlington Industries, Inc., including office files of James Spencer Love in which he corresponded with management, other industry-related companies and organizations, and with politicians and other public figures about the textile business, organized labor, and international relations, particularly with Cuba; corporate history materials; accounting and operations records for various mills; public relations materials; photographic and audiovisual materials that depict employees, machinery, plants, products, and company events, including the Greater Greensboro Open golf tournament; product samples; and other related materials.
