COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

This collection is divided into three series:
I: Images of Mills, Alphabetical by Location. Consists entirely of stereoscopic images arranged alphabetically by state, then by ciy/town. Most of the images are of mills, both interior and exterior views. Also includes views from around the mill towns.
II: General Images Organized by Textile Related Subject. Consists of a mix of about 40% stereoscopic images and 60% postcards. These images are arranged by subject based on ATHM numerically coded "TT" local subject headings. The subject headings have been kept, but the "TT" codings have been dropped. Most of the images depict the production of cotton and wool, though there is a section on flax and other fibers. Subjects include both fiber production, growing wool and cotton, and processing into cloth.
III: Pacific Mills Images Organized by Textile Related Subject. Consists entirely of stereoscopic images arranged by subject, the same as Series II. The images depict the production of cotton and wool textiles, with subjects focusing on the production of cloth.
A stereoscopic viewer is included in the collection in order to view the stereoscopic images in 3D.
PROCESSING INFORMATION:

This collection has been kept in the order it was in when received from the American Textile History Museum. The subject groupings in Series II and Series III are based on the local subject headings defined by ATHM. These subject headings were coded numerically, TT1 through TT 63. The Kheel Center has not kept the "TT" designations and has only retained the subject headings themselves.
The descriptive hierarchy follows the standard box/folder/item scheme. However, in the case of this collection the "folder" level represents a section of the box, rather than an actual physical folder.

Text on reverse: "This plant, located just North of the City of Greensboro, N.C., is the largest denim mill in the world. It is owned by the Proximity Manufacturing Company, which also operates another large denim plant at Greensboro, known as Proximity Mill. The two plants have an aggregate of 110,000 spindles and 3500 looms, and employ about 2500 operatives. They consume 60,000 bales of cotton annually (30,000,000 lbs.), and have a daily output of over 200,000 yards of denim." The White Oak Cotton Mills made denim. 17.75 x 8.75 cm.

Text on reverse: "The bales are opened, and the cotton is thrown into the large hoppers at the front of these machines, which open and loosen the fibres, work out lumps and remove the grosser impurities, such as dirt, leaf, seed and trash. A strong air draft carries off the dust and foreign particles, and lifts the cotton through trunks to the floor above. There are twenty-four lines of Opening Machines in the White Oak Mills."

Several of these are doubled and drawn into one so as to get the weight of each yard as uniform as possible." The White Oak Cotton Mills made denim. 17.75 x 8.75 cm.

They are delivered at the front of the machine as a filmy web, which is gathered together and formed into a soft downy ribbon or rope, known as card sliver. This is automatically coiled and delivered into cans." The White Oak Cotton Mills made denim. 17.75 x 8.75 cm.

H.C. White Co., N. Bennington, Vt. Gelatin silver print. No. 5 in a set of 25 stereocards. Text on reverse: "To insure uniformity in weight, so that the yarn when spun shall run even, the card slivers are doubled and drawn out, redoubled and again drawn out, somewhat in the manner of a candy maker pulling taffy, only here the process is continuous. Six strands of the card sliver are fed in together at the back of the drawing frames, pulled out and delivered as one; and the process repeated. This produces a sliver more uniform in weight, and in which the fibres are more parallel." The White Oak Cotton Mills made denim. 17.75 x 8.75 cm.

The attenuated fibres are then twisted firmly together by the action of the spindles which turn at a speed of about 10,000 revolutions per minute.

Text on reverse: "Two kinds of yarn are delivered at the spinning frames, known as warp and filling, which make respectively the lengthwise and crosswise threads of the cloth. The filling is in its completed form ready for the loom, the warp must first be gotten into shape for dyeing and then arranged in parallel rows or sheets of thread for weaving. The first of these processes is spooling, and consists simply in unwinding the yarn from the small bobbins on which it is spun, and re-winding it on large spools."

The separate threads are drawn through little wires in the warpers, and are gathered into a bunch or rope of threads, which is wound in a large cylindrical ball known as a warp. If any thread breaks while passing through the warper, the little wire drops and stops the machine. In this way, full count of threads and uniform weight of the goods is insured."

Photo of Crystal Lee Jordan Sutton shown on front of card with several workers in background. On front of card is this quote: "I knew this union was the only way we could have our own voice, make ourselves a better way of life." Crystal Lee. Printed on reverse: Crystal Lee Jordan Sutton (b. 1940). Born into a North Carolina weaving family, she became a dynamic organizer of textile workers in the landmark J.P. Stevens unionizing drive of 1973-74, in her native Roanoke Rapids, a "company" town. Textiles & clothing is the only basic U.S. industry not fully organized, despite a southern workforce of 700,000. "Brown lung," deafening noise, and low pay are among the argued issues. The Textile Workers Union of America * [*now the Amalgamated Clothing Textile Workers Union] targeted Crystal's town. One night during her shift she stood up alone to management and went to jail; but TWUA won the subsequent election & a contract. The company still refuses to comply legally and a widely publized product boycott continues. Martinsville, Ind.: Helaine Victoria Press, ca. 1979. 14 x 9 cm.

Black-and-white image shows a room where two men and a woman work at desks with large designs. More designs are hung in the room. Text on reverse: "Designing Room for Cloth to be Woven on Jacquard Looms - Silk Industry, So. Manchester, Conn., U.S.A. This view shows a Jacquard designing room where the designs for cloth woven on a Jacquard loom are made. Incidentally, it should be noted that the invention of the Jacquard loom, both because of its ingenuity and because of its far-reaching effects, is probably the most important invention in the textile industry. The machine is named after Joseph Marie Jacquard who first made use of the principle. Jacquard was born in Lyons, France, on the seventh of July, 1752; he died in 1834. By the use of the Jacquard looms very elaborate patterns for figured or brocaded goods with a large variety of weaves may be produced. In this picture we get a glance into a corner of the Jacquard designing room of the Cheney Bros. plant in South Manchester, Conn. A few of the numerous varied designs are to be seen spread out near the group of expert designers seen at work in this room. The design is first made of the proper size and then transferred to paper ruled in squares. Each square represents the intersection of a warp and a filling thread. From the way in which the design falls on these squares the card cutter can tell how to punch the cards which control the motion of the warp thread."

Black-and-white image of a man hoeing a cotton field. After the field is plowed, the plow is followed by laborers, who draw the loose soil around the plants. This process is called "hauling" and is done to keep the plants erect. This process is done from time to time until four "haulings" have been made. When blossoming time is over no further haulings need to be made. The man seen here is drawing the earth up around the plant. Meadville, Pa.: Keystone View Company, ca. 1905. 17.75 x 8.75 cm.

Box 7 Folder 4
Black-and-white image depicts a man handling a mule-drawn plow, banking up the cotton plants. Another man with a plow can be seen in the background. The first step in preparing the land for a cotton crop is by clearing away the litter. This is generally done by burning. After that the land is ploughed and harrowed. Once the ground has been seeded and plants begin to grow, they must be thinned out, leaving the strongest only. Then a plow is run between the ridges, throwing up the earth against the plants. This is banking up or bedding up and is what is seen here. Meadville, Pa.: Keystone View Company, ca. 1905. 17.75 x 8.75 cm.
