Charles H. Rutledge (1901-1978) was the manager of the Product Information section for the Textile Fibers Department at the DuPont Company from 1944 to 1966. He authored numerous papers and was a contributor to textbooks and encyclopedias on textile fibers. This collection consists of two sets of files, those Rutledge maintained while at DuPont and those he compiled for a book he had planned to write following his retirement about the history of fibers.
Items with a specific and limited use, created with the intention of being discarded after serving their purpose, are called ephemera. This collection consists of mixed-format ephemera from various endeavors within American culture, primarily the manufacturing and selling of products or services.
These photographs show an exhibit sponsored by the New York State Home Bureau Managers' Association that went on display at the New York State Fair in Syracuse from August 30th to September 6th in 1952. The exhibit was intended for use by professionals in the field of home demonstration to showcase principles of home economics and domestic skills to State Fair attendees.
The exhibit was developed under the supervision of Professor Mary Koll Heiner (1890-1956), of the College of Home Economics at Cornell University, and fabricated using Crosley and Bendix brand appliances and cabinets. At the time these photographs were taken, these two brands were produced by the Crosley Division of the AVCO Manufacturing Corporation of Coldwater, Ohio.
