This project is an interpretation and analysis of WPI's archived material on Woodbury and Company. This interpretation addresses the topics of family company dynamics, Worcester industrial history, and technological growth. Finally, it suggests areas of the collection for which more research can be done. The methodology used for this project was principally primary document analysis and the interviewing of company officials in order to supplement the collection with some oral history materials.
