Charlotte Pipe and Foundry, 1993


Scope and Contents

Charlotte Pipe and Foundry chairman Roddy Dowd commissioned the Museum of the New South (now the Levine Museum of the New South) to conduct this oral history project in 1993, which provides a snapshot into the history and culture of the company from the 1920s to the 1990s. Personnel director Earl Raborn chose the subjects for the interviews and assisted the interviewer, Peter Felkner, in all but one interview, so these interviews may not fully represent the perspectives of all employees.
