After the bankruptcy of Roseknit Hosiery Company, its owner, Martin Kenneth Rosefield (1898-1979), remained active in the hosiery manufacturing industry. Per the 1940 Census, Rosefield managed a hosiery mill, possibly that of Locke Cotton Mills Co. of Concord, North Carolina, which purchased the former Roseknit Hosiery Company in 1933. In June 1946, Rosefield, P. Alec Levine, and Ida Levine chartered Sumter Hosiery Mill, Inc. with an initial capitalization of $200,000. Rosefield served a general manager and treasurer of the company, P. Alec Levine served as its president, and Ida Levine served as its secretary.
