Preface

Compiled by: John Riddle, Loren Butler, Andrew Goldstein, Jill Anderson

This guide to the archival holdings of leading companies in the electrical, electronics, and computer industries is based on a survey performed in the spring and summer of 1994 as one part of a multi-year project of the IEEE-Rutgers Center for the History of Electrical Engineering. Entitled Power and Control, this project aims to develop resources for the study and understanding of the history of electrical technology. In addition to this guide to corporate archives, we will also produce a three-volume history of electrical technology from its origins in the mid-19th century to the present day, and expand and diversify the Center for the History of Electrical Engineering’s already extensive international collection of oral history interviews of leaders in the electrical, electronics, and computer fields.

The Center has previously published directories of archives, manuscript collections, and oral histories relating to the history of electrical technology held by U.S. repositories. Although much of the development of electrical technology has been accomplished by the industrial sector, we were concerned that archival materials documenting this sector’s involvement may not have been placed in publicly accessible repositories, or may not have been preserved at all. We saw a need to determine the extent of archival preservation that currently exists within the electrical industries and to give researchers an introductory guide to these resources. This project was undertaken with those goals in mind.

After identifying leading companies in a broadly defined range of relevant industries by using standard business reference sources and IEEE technical society liaisons, we contacted 672 companies, 177 of which were located outside the United States. Some companies had many subsidiaries and divisions involved in electrical engineering. In these cases we generally surveyed only the parent company. In some cases, diversified companies were not generally in an electrical business, but some of their subsidiaries were. In those cases we only surveyed the relevant subsidiaries. For many of the companies outside the United States, we surveyed both the parent company and the main U.S. subsidiary. We received 133 completed surveys, of which 24 were from companies located outside the United States.

Each company profile here was compiled from the information supplied on the returned survey. Researchers should be aware that these profiles represent only a "snapshot" of the company's archival holdings. In the tumultuous world of modern business, corporate structure regularly changes. This applies as well to corporate archives, which may experience radical change within a short period of time. In all cases, we strongly recommend that the researcher contact the company before visiting, to verify the access policy and contents of the archives.

We have made an effort in this report to distinguish companies with formal archives from those without, based on identification as given on the survey responses. But it is difficult to maintain this distinction with accuracy. Record centers typically do have different retention schedules and filing procedures than formal archives. A researcher should not assume that any particular company maintains its archives in a professionally approved manner just because it has indicated on our survey that it has a formal archives. Likewise, it should not be assumed that companies that have a records center instead of a formal archives do not necessarily maintain their records in an archival system. We have thus included here all cases where companies indicated that all or some of the records in their retention centers may be available to outside researchers.

Researchers will note that we have not supplied the dates or ranges of a company's records. There is such great variability of methods of archives management and disposition schedules found across companies that we believe dates or ranges may therefore be misleading indicators of a company's actual holdings. We have, however, provided the date of the company's founding, which gives some indication as to possible range. Many of the companies profiled here, especially the utility companies, have developed into their present structure only after many mergers and acquisitions. During such upheavals, records may have been destroyed, moved, merged, maintained as separate collections, or some combination of these outcomes, and it is possible that current staff will not have information about the fate of earlier records. The exact range of a particular company's holdings may therefore be quite extensive or, conversely, quite limited. Researchers are thus urged to contact the company first to determine the extent of its records holdings and the pertinence of the records to particular research projects.

Each company profile comprises a number of fields:

  • Company Name: The complete legal name of the company.
  • City, State, Country: The location of the company's headquarters. This is not necessarily the place of its archives or records repository.
  • Industry: Only that portion of a company's business that pertains to electrical and electronics engineering is indexed. Broad categories are used.
  • Company Founding: The date of the company's founding as provided on the survey. In some cases, we indicate the original name of the company and dates of name changes and/or mergers.
  • Description: A general description of the company's records holdings as taken from the survey response and from any additional material supplied by the company. For companies that indicated on the survey that they do have an archives, we begin each description with "Archives include.." In all other cases, we indicate that a formal archives does not exist, but we give a description of its records holdings as listed on the returned survey.
  • Other Information: Additional information concerning the company or its records, such as the location of a company museum, or information provided about future changes planned for company records.
  • Corporate History: Following information provided on returned survey forms and from follow-up bibliographic research, we indicate if a corporate history has been written. Bibliographic information is given as provided on the survey or found in the RLIN database. In many cases, these histories were company sponsored and their availability is limited. Researchers should contact the company for more information. While sponsored corporate histories vary widely in format, quality, and objective, they are often a useful and even unique source of information. We have not included complete bibliographies for those few companies that have received extensive attention from outside researchers.
  • Contact (Name, Title, Phone Number, Address): In some cases, a company did not supply a contact's title or phone number. We provided whatever information was contained on the survey. Where possible, we have supplied fax numbers for non-U.S. companies.
  • Access: Two general categories are used, "No access" or "With permission." We used "No access" only if a company specifically stated on the survey that it had such a policy. In all other cases, including those where the company indicated that it had no access policy at all, we used "With permission." It is incumbent on the researcher to contact the company to determine the exact nature of its access policy. No company is likely to give unrestricted access.

It is likely that many of the corporate records reported here have not previously been studied by historians. The researcher who is granted permission to examine a particular company’s records may be the first to have considered and appraised the historical value of those materials. We urge, then, that the research act as both an advocate to the company for the enduring value of the records as well as a conservator, who will leave the materials in as organized and preserved manner as possible for the next historian. Moreover, when approaching prospective research sites and dealing with corporate archivists and records managers, the researcher would do well to keep in mind the nature of commercial workplaces. Corporate archives are likely to have many more restrictions on access and conditions of use than are typically encountered in scholarly facilities, and are unlikely to provide researchers with comparable support services.

This guide was researched and prepared by the staff of the IEEE Center for the History of Electrical Engineering with the assistance of consulting archivist Bruce Bruemmer. John Riddle served as project archivist, designing the project and leading its execution under the direction of Jill Anderson and Andrew Goldstein. Special thanks are due to archivist Anne Millbrooke for her assistance with matters great and small. This guide, an aspect of the Center’s Power and Control project, was supported by a grant from the Andrew Mellon Foundation. Other project supporters include the IEEE Foundation, IEEE Life Member Fund, IEEE Foundation Friends Fund, and the AT&T Foundation.
