Biographical Note

Pierre A. Gentieu was a long-term employee of E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company who created an invaluable photographic record of the company's Brandywine Mills at the turn of the century.

Gentieu was born in France in 1842. He emigrated to the United States around 1859. As a member of the local militia in New Orleans, Gentieu refused to swear allegiance to the Confederacy and was shipped north at the beginning of the Civil War. He later enlisted in the 13th Connecticut Volunteers. He began working for DuPont in 1877 and remained a loyal employee until his retirement.

Scope and Content

This collection of Gentieu's photographs constitutes the most important surviving visual record of the DuPont Company's Hagley Yards during the late 19th and 20th century, when the manufacture of black powder peaked and began to decline with the development of high explosives. Subjects represented include the DuPont Powder Yards on Brandywine Creek and other company buildings on that site, DuPont Family homes (including Windmar, Rokeby, Pelleport, Swamp Hall, and Eleutherian Mills, which was converted to a workers' club during Gentieu's years of employment), DuPont Company workers and their homes and families, Delaware School Districts 23 and 75, Wilmington-area churches (incl. Mt. Salem and St. Joseph's), and probably the only extant images of the aftermath of late 19th century black powder explosions on the Brandywine. Gentieu was also apparently involved in arranging the company's trade displays of shooting powders at the annual Sportmen's Expositions held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
