Corporate history of The Caterpillar Company
For a book and exhibit about the corporate history of The Caterpillar Company, we researched the company’s involvement in the invention of tanks and other wartime vehicles. We searched government documents, photos, and design drawings from the WWI design and development of tanks (including the papers of Gen. George Patton, who was instrumental in the design and development). We also found some training films from WWI showing tanks in their experimental and development stages.
Facilities: LOC, NARA
Result: The project lasted 2 months and produced approximately 300 digital images and videos.
