Scope and Content
This collection continues the history of Ward's Natural Science Establishment, Rochester, New York as started in the Henry Augustus Ward Papers (call number A.W23) and continued in the Ward's Natural Science Establishment Papers (call number D.231). While the first collection of the Establishment (D.231) concentrates on the history of Ward's from the 1950s through the 1980s, covering mostly the financial and business aspects of the company, particularly from the time when William C. Gamble was president of Ward's (1962 through 1980), this newest addition to the collection, while smaller in volume, is much broader in scope. It encompasses the history of Ward's from its earliest beginnings with Henry A. Ward in 1862 through the sale of the company in 1998. It also includes many historical materials on the extended Henry A. Ward Family.

The collection was donated to the University of Rochester on July 29, 1998, on behalf of Ward's Natural Science Establishment, Inc., by Kurt Gelke, current President of Ward's, and Kenneth G. Rainis, Vice-President of Biology. It is meant to supplement the original collection, despite its broader scope and chronology. Materials in this collection would be useful to historians of science, science education, business, Henry A. Ward and the Ward family, and the City of Rochester.
