Gregg and Swint Papers
This historical collection consists of documents and memorabilia of the Graniteville Company, a major Southern textile manufacturing firm founded in 1845 by William Gregg.
Encompassing approximately 49.5 linear feet of records, items include correspondence, diaries, and other papers of William Gregg. Also significant are late 19th and early 20th century hand-entered time books, printed annual reports, handmade company scrapbooks, historical photographs, framed pictures of mills and various officials, and the Graniteville Bulletin, a publication of the Graniteville Company for its employees.
The primary research value of this collection is for scholars in Southern economic, social, and labor history for the period 1845 to 1985 as well as for cultural historians of the South as it moved into the 20th Century.
The archive represents the only collection in existence devoted to William Gregg and the Graniteville Company. It was developed over the years by the executives of the company at its main office in the village of Graniteville.
The Gregg-Graniteville Collection is open to researchers by appointment only.
