DuPont Corporate History Book
DuPont: From the Banks of the Brandywine to Miracles of Science (2002)
Prepared for the 200th anniversary of DuPont, this luxurious coffee-table book puts a colorful face on American business, economic, and cultural history as well. DuPont’s powerful explosives built the nation’s nineteenth-century railroads, tunnels, and mines; its familiar plastics, dyes, and synthetics defined America’s twentieth-century “consumer” society. Drawing on corporate and business history scholarship, the book recounts the transition from family firm to multinational. Original documentary, oral history, and especially photographic research, however, makes this well-appointed book as distinctive as the DuPont oval. Hardcover, 11.5” x 11”, 274 full-color pages. Published in 2002.
