The Company's Two Founders Knew They Could Make It Work


Abstract:
In 1920, Julius Ward Harriss and his son-in-law W. Conner Covington founded Harriss & Covington Hosiery Mills in High Point. Their first product was ladies' mercerized cotton stockings, but they later switched to men's hosiery. Today, Harriss & Covington employs over 230 people, with weekly production approximately 20,000 dozen pair.
