ATHM Names Whatley Adjunct Curator Of Machinery

The American Textile History Museum (ATHM), Lowell, Mass., has named Lowell McKay “Mac” Whatley as adjunct curator of machinery. Whatley — a lawyer based in Asheboro, N.C., whose earlier professional career revolved around archaeology and architectural history — has long had an interest in Southern textile history.

ATHM hired Whatley in conjunction with its decision to store much of its collection of industrial-period textile machinery in Franklinville, N.C. The museum plans eventually to open a satellite museum in North Carolina, recognizing that state’s strong textile history.

“The museum is very pleased to welcome Mac to our collections department,” said James “Jim” Coleman, president and CEO, ATHM. “Mac is passionately interested in textile history, and we are confident in his ability to promote the preservation, study and use of the museum’s machinery collection. We see this as an important step toward becoming more of a national museum, with greater public access to our vast collections.”
