Print Nothing says quality like a product that has been around for over 120 years, like Pendleton wool clothing. Founded by a young English weaver, Thomas Kay, this company continues to thrive under the direction of Kay's family. Thomas Kay's eldest daughter, Fannie, learned the mill business and ably assisted her father in mill operation and management. When she married retail merchant C.P. Bishop, a complementary combination of merchandising and manufacturing expertise emerged - a solid foundation for what was to become Pendleton Woolen Mills. This dual textile-retail heritage was passed on to the three Bishop sons, Clarence, Roy and Chauncey. In 1909, with family and town backing, the Bishop sons started up an idle mill in Pendleton, Oregon.

The mill, originally built in 1893, faced increased freight tariffs and the business became unprofitable. In 1895, the scouring plant was enlarged and converted into a woolen mill which made bed blankets and robes for Native Americans. In 1912, the addition of a weaving mill in Washougal, WA, broadened Pendleton's capability for fabric variety, including suitings. Wool shirts for men were largely utility items in the early 20th century. In 1924, the legendary Pendleton virgin wool men's shirt was born.

Pendleton has thrived under the direction of the Bishop family. Today, their sons have assumed management roles in the company. C.M. Bishop III is president and John and Charles are vice presidents. Another son, Peter, is manager of the Catalog/Internet Division. This family thread has continued to produce Pendleton leadership with a legacy of hands-on management for six generations -- warranted to be a Pendleton since 1863.
