Glenlyon Dye Works

Scope & content

These records represent all five plants of the Glenlyon Dye Works, although there is very little to study of the Valley Falls plant. There is some concentration within the period of years of maximum growth, c, 1883-1913. Particularly useful are the Superintendent's books and the Instructions book. The latter, dating c.1906-1931 are indexed binders of interplant directives regarding pay, procedures, processes, reporting, etc. The Superintendent's books appear to have been created as a handy reference for the plant managers to [sic] instructions, letters, memoranda, technical articles from magazines and other sources of information, c. 1915-1917. The collection also includes a good section of pay records extending from 1883 to 1923.
