Internships

Summer 2019 Intern – Hosiery/Textile Industry Oral History Project

The High Point Historical Society (HPHS) of the High Point Museum (HPM) seeks an enthusiastic and motivated intern to work on an oral history project with HPM Collections staff during the summer of 2019.

This internship is open to both graduate and undergraduate students interested in museum collections development, oral history, and/or southern textile and labor history. The intern will gain hands-on experience in local history research, community building, and planning and conducting oral history interviews.

Willowbrook, High Point’s first cotton mill, opened in 1880, although hosiery and knitting mills quickly dominated the local textile industry. In 1923, High Point boasted 26 textile plants. By the 1980s, Adams-Millis Corporation, created by consolidating several High Point hosiery mills in 1928, was the world’s 4th largest manufacturer of hosiery. Starting in the 1970s and continuing through the 1990s, manufacturing declined as companies were sold or consolidated and factories moved overseas. A few companies, including Harriss & Covington and Slane Hosiery, maintain a manufacturing presence in High Point.

The HPHS’ current collection has few personal stories, photographs, and artifacts from the hosiery industry. This project aims to collect oral histories, while also building connections between the museum, the local hosiery industry, and current and former industry employees. The intern will do background research on the hosiery industry, identify potential interviewees, schedule and conduct the interviews using established guidelines, and provide the HPHS with indexes of the interviews.

The internship is available for those seeking class credit.  The internship is 160 hours but the exact timeframe and schedule will be mutually determined by the supervisor and the successful candidate.

Minimum requirements: Must be currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or graduate level program working toward a degree in museum studies, public history, history, or other related field. The candidate must have basic knowledge of oral history procedures, a passion for history, and an interest in learning about the North Carolina hosiery industry.  Previous experience conducting oral history interviews is appreciated, but not required.  The competitive candidate will have the ability to work independently and a strong knowledge of 20th century southern United States textile and labor history. Must be comfortable meeting new people and be able to put interviewees at ease.

The HPHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports the mission of the HPM.  The HPM is a local history museum operated by the City of High Point.  The HPM’s mission is to share Greater High Point’s history, provide perspective for current issues, and strengthen the sense of community.  The mission of the HPHS is to collect, preserve and showcase the history of greater High Point to foster a shared appreciation of our community reflected in the stories, events and traditions of our past.

This is a temporary, paid position based in High Point, North Carolina, and funded by the HPHS. The internship must be completed between May 15 and September 1, 2019. The intern will be paid by a stipend of $2,000. Employee benefits are not available. Housing is not provided.

To apply, email a cover letter, resume, and two letters of reference to corinne.midgett@highpointnc.gov.  Questions may be directed to the same address. 

Application deadline is March 5, 2019.
