Description

The history and importance of cotton mills throughout the South during much of the 20th century is part of North Carolina’s rich heritage. Gardner-Webb University professor of history Dr. Timothy Vanderburg explores the significance and the long-term effects of one of the giants of the early Southern industrial economy in his new book “Cannon Mills and Kannapolis: Persistent Paternalism in a Textile Town.” Vanderburg, who was raised in Concord, N.C., has studied aspects of the textile mill industry, specifically Cannon Mills, for decades.
