Historical Note

Bethlehem Steel Corporation in its earliest manifestation dates from 1861 when it was initially conceived as the Bethlehem Iron Company located in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania to produce railroad rails. This nomenclature changed to Bethlehem Steel Corp. at the turn of the century when the company under the direction of Charles Schwab and Eugene Grace became the second largest American steel company; combined with its other venture, Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corp., it became a leading 20th century American business. Bethlehem's ambitious rise to dominance included acquiring Cambria, Lackawanna, McClintic-​Marshall, Midvale, and Pennsylvania Steel Companies. The Pennsylvania Steel Company, a large integrated producer of rails and bridges, was aquired in 1916. Its subsidiary, the Maryland Steel Company (1891-1919), operated a large steel-works and shipyard at Sparrow's Point. Baltimore Dry Dock Co., Fore River Shipbuilding Co., Pennsylvania Shipbuilding Co., and United Shipyards Inc. among others were acquired by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation.

Scope and Content

The Bethlehem Steel Corporation collection includes a wide range of photography which documents the company’s long history and the breadth of its enterprises from east to west coasts and overseas. It contains eighteenth and nineteenth century photography of both industrial and non-industrial images and of management and workers. As a photo researcher’s tool, its use will be as varied and extensive as the corporation itself was during its years as an American industrial giant.

The images often include both photos of the shipyards and the multitude of ships they produced. The regions are: Baltimore-area (includes Baltimore Dry Dock Co.), Fairfield and Sparrows Point, Md., yards which are noteworthy for their extensive holdings of Liberty and Victory ship negatives; Boston-area (includes photos from repair yards, The Atlantic Works Inc. and Simpson Patent Dry Docks, which Bethlehem superseded), World War One shipyards at Fore River, Quincy, and Squantum, Mass. and a World War Two shipyard at Hingham, Mass.; California shipyards include San Francisco (the Union Iron Works period and, many years later, a ventilation caisson built for BART (Bay Area Rapid Transist), Alameda (originally a Union Iron Works yard), and Terminal Island at San Pedro where Liberty ships and destroyers were built; New York-area yards include Brooklyn 27th St. (originally built by Theodore Crane & Sons and James Shewan & Sons) and 56th St. (originally built by Morse Iron Works), Hoboken, N.J. (originally W. & A. Fletcher Co.), and Staten Island; Beaumont, Tex., yard which was once Pennsylvania Shipbuilding; Wilmington, Del., where the former Harlan and Hollingsworth site changed to Bethlehem ownership in 1904.

An album from Black Rock Works near Buffalo, N.Y., shows the engines produced there for the World War One ships built at Squantum, Mass. yard. In addition, there are photos of Bethlehem fabrication work.

Several separate components also should be noted. These consist of photos of American yachts, non-military, and military ships. Some of these images include 19th century vessels. Note that examples from the following shipyards are included: Atlantic Works (Boston), J. Abrahams (Baltimore), Beany Son & Archbold (Chester, Pa.), Brown & Bell (N.Y.), Columbian Iron Works (Baltimore), William Cramp & Sons Ship and Engine Building Co. (Phila.), A. & W. Denmoad & Sons (Baltimore), James B. Edes (St. Louis), John W. Griffith (Kittery, Me.), Harlan & Hollingsworth Corp. (Wilmington, Del.), Herreshoff Mfg. Co. (Bristol, Conn.), Howard & Ellis (White Hall, N.C.), Iowa Iron Works (Dubuque), Newport News Ship Building (Va.), N.F. Palmer & Co. (Chester, Pa.), Peak & Kirby (Cleveland, Ohio), Penine, Secor & Co. (Jersey City, N.J.), Samuel Pook (Fairhaven, Conn.), John Roach & Son (Chester, Pa.), Union Iron Works Co. (San Francisco). Nineteenth century items include a drawing of a 50 HP Nagel & Weingaertner steam engine and a hand drawn illustration of a revenue cutter (ca. 1865) built by Peak and Kirby.

There are also photographs in the Bethlehem collection that do not directly tie to the company. For example, the West Superior Iron Company is represented by an album of late 19th century steel mill photographs. There are also photographs of: the Quebec Bridge which was built by the St. Lawrence Bridge Company and failed in 1916; the New Castle Steel and Tin Plate Company; a booklet about the Shenandoah and Los Angeles airships from the Naval Air Station, Lakehurst, N.J.; an album documenting General Ferdinand Foch's U.S. tour of 1921.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged into fourteen series which are defined by their subject matter.

Series II is composed of photographs which have a geographic relationship to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, home to the company’s headquarters. This consists of photographs of Bethlehem Iron Company, a predecessor company which merged with Bethlehem Steel Company in 1901, the South Bethlehem steel plant, and the forge specialty department there. There are views of the company’s offices which were photographed frequently, especially during periods of renovation. Contact prints from glass plates by Lou Sterner, possibly a company photographer, are also a part of Series II since they depict different industrial views of the Bethlehem plant and some personal photography of Lehigh University. There are also historical and twentieth century images relate to the city and community of Bethlehem.

Series III consists of photographs of Bethlehem plants and steel-related enterprises within Pennsylvania. There are industrial photos, as well as photographs of the community. The Johnstown material also contains 100? boxes of glass plates negatives and 47 albums of company photographs made up from a selection of the negatives. Most of these show steel mill construction, renovation, construction of the water supply system, homes, safety posters and devices, and first aid drills.

Series IV consists of mine and mine-related photographs. There are items from Ellsworth and Naginey in Pennsylvania and the Preston and Marion divisions in West Virginia. There are also materials from Cornwall Ore Mines and Furnace in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, which Bethlehem Steel Corporation owned completely in 1921.

Series V consists of Bethlehem Steel Corporation plants outside of Pennsylvania. This includes the large operation in Lackawanna, New York, outside of Buffalo; historical material related to nearby Niagara Falls is also included. There is a collect of over 100 boxes of glass plates from Lackawanna and, fortunately, a photographer’s log book to accompany them. This series also encompasses the Bethlehem plant at Sparrow’s Point, Maryland, and Bethlehem Pacific Coast Steel Company headquartered in San Francisco. In addition there is ancillary pictorial material related to San Francisco history.

Series VI consists of Bethlehem Steel Corporation ordnance plants in several locations. These include Redington, Pennsylvania, the Belcoville plant at May’s Landing, New Jersey, and New Castle, Delaware. There are also unidentified glass plates related to ordnance, shell testing, and munitions.

Series VII consists of photographs showing Bethlehem fabrication plants and contains images of products and projects which Bethlehem was involved in. These include photographs of the great Ferris wheel at the 1893 Columbian Exposition for which Bethlehem fabricated the shaft and assorted twentieth century projects including bridges, buildings, and dams.

Series VIII is miscellaneous material: steel plants without identification, old furnace ruins, miscellaneous items related to steel making, and non-Bethlehem iron industry items.

Series IX is a large one consisting of materials from Steelton, Pennsylvania, where the frog and switch division and a rail mill plant were located. There are also some glass plates from trade shows where the frog and switch department exhibited their products.

Series X consists of McClintic-Marshall Corporation trade catalogs and photographs. The construction company became a Bethlehem subsidiary in 1931. McClintic-Marshall made structural steel which was used in the building and bridge trades.

Series XI consists of artwork and engravings from the Bethlehem Steel Corporation’s holdings. The majority of the items relate to steel making, although among other things there are some noteworthy eighteenth century prints of Niagara Falls.

Series XII contains photographs of Bethlehem Steel Corporation’s foreign interests in Argentina, Canada, Columbia, Cuba, and the West Indies. Bethlehem bought raw materials from these locations, and many of the images depict mining operations. There are also pictures of native workers and scenery.

Series XIII contains the photographs used by Bethlehem Steel Corporation’s advertising department. This group of 283 images has been individually cataloged. It contains photographs which in many cases do not appear elsewhere in the collection. Its separate index should be consulted by researchers who may be seeking any variety of material. For example, there are photos of such diverse subjects as individuals, steel plant sites, mines, bridges, and shipyards.

Series XIV is composed of photographs which are part of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation collection, but have no organizational connection with the company. Among the choicest example of these is the splendid grouping of mounted photographs from the West Superior Iron Company. There are also impressive albums of the construction of the Quebec Bridge from the St. Lawrence Bridge Company of Canada.

F. Charles Schwab Library
Historical Note
In 1949 Bethlehem Steel Corporation dedicated a new library within the company headquarters in honor of their deceased leader, Charles Schwab. Schwab, at the time, had already been dead for 10 years, but Eugene Grace’s devotion to him lasted until his own death; before his passing in 1960, Grace chose a burial plot near Charles Schwab’s crypt. As the leader of the Corporation ending a 50-year career, Eugene Grace made a final decision to dedicate the company library to his mentor, Charles Schwab. Members from the American Institute of Iron and Steel who consisted of the most powerful steel men in America attended the ceremony.

Historical Note
In 1950, at the close of Grace’s 50-year career with Bethlehem Steel Corporation, the company renovated their auditorium. Grace’s service to the company was honored by rededicating the room to him. Extensive mural work was done in the auditorium and foyer by the artist Dean Cornwell. The artwork depicts themes from Eugene Grace’s life and from steel and shipbuilding motifs that illustrate the Corporation’s industries.

III. Plants within Pennsylvania
Scope and Content
The photographs of Bethlehem plants and steel-related enterprises within Pennsylvania are composed of steel plants at Lebanon, Lehigh, Northampton, Saucon and Williamsport. There are also photographs from the Johnstown plant; this includes some early Cambria Iron Company images. By far the largest component of this portion of the collection though is the Cambria Steel Co. glass plates and albums. The negatives date from 1900-1917. The albums are mostly composed of photos showing Franklin Mill and open hearth and blast furnaces, Gautier mill, steel mill construction, renovation, coke plant, rod and wire mills, construction of water supply systems, safety posters and devices, and first aid drills. An oversize album of plant views (1919) drawn by Edward Spofford shows many of the Bethlehem Steel and Shipyards plants.
