Comments from a Gardner-Webb University history professor are included in a new documentary film on the life and work of notable industrialist, Charles A. Cannon. Dr. Tim Vanderburg, author of “Cannon Mills and Kannapolis: Persistent Paternalism in a Textile Town,” was interviewed on the GWU campus last November by the film crew. The 60-minute documentary, “Charles A. Cannon: A Mind for Business, A Heart for People,” takes an in-depth look at the life of the visionary whose leadership and philanthropy played out on a global stage.
