“Mr. Walter”, the Life and Times of Walter S. Montgomery, Sr.
Spartan Mills was one of the South Carolina textile industry's most highly regarded companies, and the high esteem in which it is held is a tribute to its former chairman, Walter S. Montgomery. Walter Scott Montgomery was born October 18, 1900, in Spartanburg, the son of Walter S. and Bessie Gibbes Montgomery. He was educated in the public schools and the Hastoc School for Boys in Spartanburg and graduated from Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. The ETV Upstate produced show, “Mr. Walter, The life and times of Walter S. Montgomery Sr.”, is a production in which Walter Montgomery, through his own homemade films and conversation, reflects back over his many achievements in life.
