(Taken from the Biographical Note section of the EUA058 Love School of Business Collection finding aid.)
Taken directly from the program that was created to recognize and celebrate 25 years of the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business, it states the following about Martha and Spencer Love (folder titled 2011-program (Love School of Business 25 years)): "In 1999, Business North Carolina identified the 20 titans of the 20th century Tar Heel Business. The magazine named James Spencer Love as the most influential figure on this list, noting that Spencer Love was responsible for 'an unparalleled textile corporation in the creation of Burlington Industries.' While others continued to rely on commission to move their merchandise, Love opened his own New York sales office to create a brand that both the domestic and international markets would demand. He was a fierce competitor who was willing to take risks by diversifying and investing heavily in new technology and new methods to make his mills more efficient and productive, and he valued his employees. At the time of his death, Burlington Industries was the world's largest textile firm and the 48th largest corporation in the country. His wife, Martha, provided a partnership with Spencer that greatly influenced the success of Burlington Industries."
The collection is arranged chronologically then alphabetically by type of material.
