Abstract:

The records are comprised of three series. The Harley Earl Associates series, 1945-1991 (bulk 1945-1964) (13.6 cubic ft., 1 oversize box and 1 oversize folder), includes administrative material such as marketing and employee documentation, along with project records. Project records include design work for 3M, Alcoa, Argus, Bissell, U.S. Rubber, Nabisco along with many others. The Walter B. Ford Design Associates series, 1952-1953 (0.4 cubic ft.) is slight as it is comprised of material for only one project. The Ford Rotunda renovation, 1952-1953 includes, however, the significant design of a geodesic dome over the central court by R. Buckminster Fuller and Associates. This was the first commercial application of Fuller's dome. The Ford & Earl Design Associates series, 1966-1999 (2.4 cubic ft., 14 oversize boxes and 1 oversize folder) include design concepts, photographs, negatives, and design drawings for a wide variety of products such as housewares, cameras, writing implements, bicycles and toys, health and beauty products, food packaging, farm equipment, office products, and building installations. The records primarily document the work the firm did for RCA and Ronson. Researchers should note that there are many unidentified oversized drawings included in the series. Photographic documentation of Ford & Earl Design includes photographs by noted architectural photographer Ezra Stoller. The series also includes a tribute to Walter Buhl Ford II entitled Legacy of Design.
