    History As a young man, he did woodworking, enjoyed skiing, and was an excellent ballroom dancer. According to Muse (s204), "He worked for various textile manufacturing firms during his career, mostly in operations and management positions. When his children were young, he traveled a great deal, and transferred his family to new cities as he followed his textile career. Eventually he started a consulting firm in which he helped smaller companies who were faltering." He was employed by American Enka Corporation of Enka, North Carolina between 1963 and 1968. Kenneth was employed by Textile Research Services, Raleigh, North Carolina between 1968 and 1974.  [1
