Roger Milliken, the owner of the largest private textile company in the world… died on December 30th, 2010. Milliken was in some way part of the Glamwire story…Glamwire’s grandfather loaned Milliken money to make his payroll thoughout the 1930s. And in the 70s…Glamwire’s father used to come back from the Carolina’s with a WWD rolled under his arm declaring something like “that Roger Milliken sure knows how to throw a party.” John Edwards, the North Carolina ex-Senator and current train wreck…grew up in Milliken mill housing. Roger got around…. But most importantly he was a heck of a guy and a throwback to when American textiles ruled. Glamwire will sincerely miss the very great Roger Milliken.
