Goodyear Newsletters Digitized

11/17/2009

Archival Services partnered with the Akron-Summit County Public Library to digitize and make available online the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company employee newsletter, The Wingfoot Clan.  Now available online at Summit Memory are the Aircraft edition, 1941-1945, and the Akron edition, 1939-1946.  The scanned documents are fully searchable through Summit Memory at http://www.summitmemory.org.

Archival Services maintains complete holdings of the original printed copies of The Wingfoot Clan newsletters including the Akron edition, 1912-1993, and the Aircraft edition (changed to Aerospace in 1968), 1941-1986.  Also as part of this project, the Wingfoot Clan newsletters were microfilmed for preservation purposes.  The microfilm copies are available in Archival Services, Polsky Building, LL-10.

The archives also maintains a variety of other historical publications produced by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.  Archival Services is open to the public Monday-Friday from 8 am. to 5 p.m.  Contact the archives at 330-972-7670 or visit www.uakron.edu/ul/archives.
