About this Collection

The Henry J. Kaiser Pictorial Collection contains more than 75,000 items, including photographic prints, albums, and glass and film negatives. The collection dates from circa 1930 to circa 1976. The bulk of the collection, like the manuscript collection, dates from after World War II, by which time the affiliated Kaiser companies were producing an amazing array of building materials, including steel, cement, aluminum, and gypsum; beginning engineering projects all over the world; and, building affordable housing and consumer goods, such as Kaiser-Frazer cars, Willys Jeeps, and even dishwashers....
