Columbia Historical Corporate Reports Online Collection

In 2007 a project was undertaken to digitize a selection of corporate reports from the Columbia Business Library’s extensive collection of historical corporate annual reports.

The selection targeted corporations that operated in and around New York City, in part to provide content for a parallel pilot project called Digital New York City. Approximately 36 companies are represented with a total of approximately 770 individual reports (ca. 17,300 pages) ranging from the 1850s through the early 1960s.
