As any archivist will tell you, it’s a momentous day when you put shiny, new box labels on the collection you’ve just finished processing. 105 boxes later, here’s my newest pride and joy: Photographs from the Records & Ephemera of Hercules Inc.! Over the past year, we’ve shared a lot of great photos from this collection, which chronicles the
plants, employees, products, advertising, and brand strategies of the Hercules
Powder Company (later Hercules Incorporated). If those photos peak your interest, check out the hot-off-the-presses finding aid in our OPAC and let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see on Othmeralia. You’ve got 105 boxes to choose from, after all!
