AMCO NEWS Vol.. xxm No. 3 Adams-Millis Corporation May-June, 1965 Buddy Taylor MEET YOUR SUPERVISOR His eighteenth birthday is well remembered, for it was on that day that Buddy Taylor was old enough to work on the third shift, and it was on that day that he was called to come to work on the third shift at the Grimes Street Plant of Adams-Millis. Buddy was reared in Yadkin County where he worked on the family farm until he was seventeen. He came to High Point and worked in another hosiery mill until he was eighteen. He started as a preboarder on the third shift. He later moved to the second shift where he continued boarding and supervising the small force then working night shift. In January of 1956, Taylor was transferred to the dye room at Plant #2 to weigh dye and assist the fore man. The dye department and the boarding room of Plant #2 were mov ed to English Street in July of 1959 when Taylor was named foreman of the second shift. When the second shift was dis continued in the dye house, Taylor was assigned to the laboratory as laboratory assistant. Here he work ed for two years before returning to the dye house as foreman. Taylor has been recognized as a quiet spoken supervisor who will get the job done despite the obstacles. The machine operators in the dye house know him for his sincerity and eagerness. There is a sense of loyalty to their foreman on the part of the men and the same sense of loyalty to the operators on the part of the foreman. Buddy Taylor attended Fall Creek School in Yadkin County. His work since leaving the farm has been entire ly in the hosiery field. He is married to the former Miss Lois Carter of High Point; they live at 1117 Tryon Street. There are two very lively little Taylors--Kathy, age 4; and Keith, age 9. The Taylors attend Ennis Street Methodist Church. Buddy's hobby is hunting.
