New Digital Collections at the Hagley

The Hagley Museum and Library in Wilmington, DE, calls itself the nation's leading business history library and archive. It's a fair self-assessment. LLC is proud to be a corporate sponsor, albeit on a small scale--and I hope to visit in person this week during a visit to the nearby University of Delaware at Newark for a Teaching American History presentation.

Last year the Hagley added 13 significant collections and uploaded 70,000 pages to its digital archives (linked below), among them extensive materials from Avon (the cosmetics folks), Nation's Business magazine and photos from 1912 to 1999 (we're hungering to use some of those in our books!), and the Enron Board Records Collection (because business history is not all good news). Well done, Hagley librarians and archivists.
