NEW YORK — Edward Phillip LeVeen Jr., who headed Carleton Woolen Mills for almost half a century, died Thursday at Hilton Head Regional Medical Center in Hilton Head, S.C. He was 92.
In 1934, LeVeen took over management of Carleton Mills, which had been closed during the Great Depression, and built it into a sizable textile concern with operations in Rochdale, Mass., and Winthrop, Maine. He continued to run the company, which has since closed its doors, until retiring in 1983.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
