This is Du Pont

About this collection

    These pamphlets were published by E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company between 1949 and 1970 for distribution to shareholders and other interested members of the public.
    The pamphlets titled 'This is Du Pont' provide broad overviews of the company's general operations. Released on an annual basis, these issues often republished material from one year to the next, adding new content as needed.
    Other issues, frequently but not always published on a twice-yearly schedule, addressed thematic issues like industrial research, corporate profits, free trade and enterprise, the environment, and the roles of the consumer and large corporations in a capitalist society. These issues were also subject to reprinting and redistribution, but do not appear to have been substantially altered or edited from one printing to the next.
