Newport News magazine

About this collection

    Pigment manufacturing began at the site of the Newport Pigment Plant in Newport, Delaware in 1902 when the site was owned and operated by Henrik J. Krebs. In 1929, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company purchased the plant. DuPont continued to use the plant to manufacture a variety of pigments until the plant was purchased by CIBA‐GEIGY in 1984.
    Newport News was an in-house employee magazine edited by and printed for employees of the plant. Hagley Library's holdings of this magazine are incomplete. The earliest issues date to 1947, the periodical's fifth year of publication, while the latest date to 1983. This title is call number HD9651.9.D94 N49 in Hagley Library's collections.
