Scope and Content

The collection consists of brochures, advertisements, photographs, and ephemera showing DuPont Company consumer products from 1913 to 1984. Chief among these products are paint and car care products such as car wash, polish, and antifreeze. Much of the material was aimed at dealers, showing how packaging could efficiently promote the products. There are a few company memos and copies of published articles about packaging, as well as some awards that DuPont received for its advertising and packaging.

A deck of cards has images of DuPont products on the face of the cards. An album from 1913 contains Harrison Brothers Company paint can labels, brochures, color samples, advertising, and photographs of interiors of paint stores. The DuPont Company acquired Harrison Brothers. There is a complete set of Weatherly Indexes for DuPont car care products from 1970 to 1982. These illustrate the containers for each of these products. There are over 400 slides of DuPont consumer products and advertising assembled by Mr. DeMirjian. Finally, there is a VHS videocassette (copy tape) of DuPont car care product television commercials from 1970 to 1981.
