Abstract:

The papers document Henry Belin du Pont's career with the Du Pont Company and General Motors Corporation, as well as his interests in aviation and the Eleutherian Mills-Hagley Foundation. Du Pont Company materials include records of stock transfers and bonuses. Also, included are reports from company economist, E.E. Lincoln.

General Motors materials are primarily concerned with the general aviation industry particularly through its connection with the Beech Aircraft Corporation. Du Pont's involvement with Atlantic Aviation is well described through correspondence, minutes of management committees, and financial records. Du Pont's support of the Bellanca Aircraft Corporation through stock purchases and other financial contributions is also documented, as is Du Pont's support of the Eleutherian Mills-Hagley Foundation. Research files include a typescript copy of Alden Hatch's "Story of Remington Arms" (1953), "Ships Built by Pusey and Jones" (1946), and Francis Gurney du Pont's "History of Explosions on the Brandywine" and "Accidents at Carney's Point".

The records also document Henry Belin du Pont's interest in collecting antiques, in his collection of automobiles, and his experiences as an aviator and yachtsman. His love of the sea deepened into an interest in maritime history and to the endowment of a preservation shipyard attached to Mystic Seaport. There are also files on du Pont's homes and farms, his involvement in local civic affairs, and his participation in the construction of the Westmorland subdivision in Wilmington. Other items of note include the log for a voyage of the British bark Peri from Gravesend to New Zealand in 1889; a report on radio stations and networks by BBD? a list of ships built by Pusey and Jones; and a history of the Peach Bottom Railway by Hugh R. Gibb.
