G.M. and Chrysler Cars and Trucks, 1897-1938
Over the years, General Motors Corporation donated photographs and related materials as a public service to contemporary and future researchers, and to create an ongoing record of the company's output. The Library, in turn, mounted these photographs and texts in albums. General Motors was one of several transportation corporations that donated public relations materials to the Library department that is now the Science, Industry and Business Library. The General Motors holding is particularly comprehensive.
While automobile catalogs and photographs of early automobiles are a particular highlight of the collection, all aspects of transportation appear in the Science, Industry and Business Library.
