Notable North Carolina Lecture Series: The Cone Family

Tuesday, Mar. 24, 7 p.m. 

Presenter: Carrie Streeter, Scholar of US History, Women’s Studies, and the American South

The Cone Mills Corporation was established in 1891 when brothers Moses and Ceasar decided to enter the textile business. While the brothers tended to their business interests, sisters Claribel and Etta were able to travel and build an art collection—paintings, sculptures, prints, textiles, jewelry, and other trinkets—that is now cherished by art historians and general viewers alike. Streeter will provide a glimpse into the personal and cultural interests of Cone family members and detail how the family contributed to North Carolina’s economic and cultural legacy.
