Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of ledger compiled by James Knox Roach (1878-1948) for the Victoria Cotton Mill. Mr. J. K.

Victoria Cotton Mill began as Globe Cotton Mill in 1889 and was renamed Victoria Cotton Mill in 1904. It operated up until at least into the 1950s with William Joseph Roddey, Jr. (1893-1987) as president.
