Bugle Boy, Founded by RPI Alumnus William Mow, Files for Bankrupcy

Dave Aiello wrote, "I regret to inform you that Bugle Boy Industries filed today for Chapter 11 Bankrupcy Protection. Dr. William C. W. Mow, one of the most famous of Rensselaer's living alumni, founded the Simi Valley, CA-based company in 1977. According to the AP news report, Dr. Mow had been chief executive until he left the company last week."

"Dr. Mow has been an RPI Trustee, he was commencement speaker in 1994, and he was the first recipient of the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Severino Center in 1990. During his long business career, he founded three large companies in different industries. Dr. Mow is also one of the most prolific contributors to Rensselaer from a philanthropic standpoint."

"I am sure that I speak for our entire organization in expressing our sympathy to Dr. Mow, his family, and the employees of his firm. Regardless of how the company is reorganized, this is the end of an era in American fashion."

"More information about the company and its history may be found on the Bugle Boy Corporate Web Site."
