INTRODUCTION 



ROANOKE RAPIDS, N. C. 

Introduction 

Southern Directory Company, publishers of the Roanoke Rapids 
city directory, takes pleasure in presenting the 1938-39 edition to the 
general public. The work embodies all available and vital data relating 
to the civic, commercial, financial, social and industrial interest and 
activities of the municipality, and the publishers add their assurance 
that the work is complete in all its parts. 

The publishers enjoy the prestige and advantage of a complete 
organization and thorough system essential in the production of di- 
rectories and the additional advantage of having the courteous co- 
operation of citizens in furnishing informaiton. These factors, added 
to the liberal support of patrons as shown by the advertisements dis- 
played upon the printed page, were vital to the success of the publi- 
cation. 

Confidence in the growth of Roanoke Rapids, in its wealth, indus- 
try and population, as well as in the advancement of its municipal and 
social activities, will be created as sections of this directory are con- 
sulted, for truly, the directory is a mirror reflecting Roanoke Rapids 
to the world. 

Your attention is invited to those names appearing in DISPLAY 
BLACK TYPE throughout the directory, as they are the responsible, 
enterprising, advertising business men who take pride in sustaining 
the city directory and who have made this publication possible. 

POPULATION 

The estimated population of Roanoke Rapids is 11,596, based on the 
number of individuals found by actual canvass at each residence. 
Territory immediately adjacent, which is part of the city, as far as 
business and social life are concerned, is included in the directory. 

FOUR MAJOR DEPARTMENTS 

The several essential departments are arranged in the follow- 
ing order. 

THE MISCELLANEOUS DIRECTORY, containing valuable informa- 
tion concerning Local, State and National Governments, Churches, 
Schools, Colleges, Clubs, etc., included in pages 9 to 12. 

THE ALPHABETICAL LIST OF NAMES of residents, business firms 
and corporations is included starting on page 101. 

THE CLASSIFIED BUSINESS DIRECTORY follows the Alphabetical 
List of Names. This department lists the various manufacturing, mer- 
cantile and professional interests in alphabetical order under appro- 
priate headings. This feature constitutes an invaluable and indis- 
pensable epitome of the business interests of the community. 

THE STREET AND AVENUE GUIDE follows the Classified Business 

Directory. In this section the names of the streets and avenues are 

■ ^^rranged in alphabetical order; the residences and business houses

INTRODUCTION 



INTRODUCTION (cont'd) 

are arranged numerically under the name of each street and avenue, 
and the names of householders, with the number of occupants, and 
business concerns are placed opposite the numbers. 

MUNICIPAL PUBLICITY 

The directory reflects the achievements and ambitions of the city, 
depicting in truthful terms what it has to offer as a place of residence, 
as a business location, as an industrial site and as an educational center. 
To broadcast this information over the country, the publishers have 
placed copies of this issue of the directory in Directory Libraries, which 
are maintained in all the chief cities of the country. Here they are 
readily available for free public reference and serve as perpetual ad- 
vertisements of Roanoke Rapids, for business men the country over 
realize that the city directory represents the community as it really is.
