DuPont (The Powder Company) Historical Records


In a recent email communication with DuPont ( Coroprate Office, I found out that “The Hagley Museum & Library is home to all historical information related to the DuPont Company.”

The Hagley Museum & Library’s website can be found here:
They are located in Wilmington, Delaware (U.S.A.)



For those interested in duPont history, there is also a book entitled Du Pont - One Hundred and Forty Years by William S. Dutton, Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1951, 408 pages. I ran across a copy in a used book store about a year ago, and found it a very interesting read.


Here are two other Du Pont books.

Du Pont, Bessie. Gardner, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company A History 1802-1902. Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston & New York. 1920.

Du Pont E. I. Co., The History of the E. I. du Pont de Nemours Powder Co. Business America, NY, 1912.


Thank you for these references guys!
Much appreciated!
