Abstract: It was the purpose of this paper to describe the founding, building up, and maintaining of Burlington Industries, Incorporated, as a corporation primarily engaged in the manufacture, conversion, and sale of textiles. The attempt was begun with no preconceptions, except the assumption that Burlington Industries has been a major textile firm for about two decades. The main problem faced in the course of writing the paper was the difficulty of locating sources. Most of the existing published sources were too brief, others were either too verbose or slanted. One main source, the personal notebook of J. Spencer Love, was not available. Once the sources were located, an effort was made to separate the opinions from the facts; and on the basis of these facts, a chronological history of the corporation was written. Opinions occur occasionally, but only to facilitate the writing of the paper according to the original plan. Information was often obtained from direct interviews with persons acquainted with the subject, but such information was always complemented by written sources, so that references to oral interviews were omitted.
