PolaroidPolaroid Donates to Harvard Business School : The Polaroid Corporation's Archives, a unique collection of materials that document the evolution of one of America's most famous companies, have been donated to the Harvard Business School's Baker Library. Housed in the library's Historical Collections, the Polaroid Corporation Archives includes approximately 1.5 million items dating from the company's founding in 1937 to the present and chronicling the invention of instant photography by Polaroid founder Dr. Edwin H. Land as well as company press clippings, packaging, employee newsletters, and annual reports. Artifacts within the collection include sunglasses, military goggles, 3D glasses, and examples of many of the camera models.

Portions of the collection will be available for research use in mid-2007. Notable items within the Polaroid Corporation Archives are research and development files and patent records that detail the company's many innovations, including Dr. Land's early work with polarizing lenses and the invention of instant photography. The firm's marketing and publicity efforts are well documented by an extensive collection of advertising materials, product packaging, and corporate publications. "Students and scholars in a number of areas, from business history and management to marketing and technology, will benefit greatly from access to these important materials," said HBS Professor Geoff Jones, one of the School's Directors of Research.

"In addition to the rich material on path breaking scientific inventions and innovations, this collection allows us to view at close range the corporate decisions and activities of an iconic American company." The Polaroid Corporation Archives also contain a vast and comprehensive set of photographs taken by Polaroid employees and professional photographers from 1937 to the 1990s. These images were taken for research purposes during the testing of new Polaroid products and as part of the company's advertising campaigns.

Tom Petters, CEO and Chairman of the Petters Group Worldwide, which acquired the Polaroid Corporation in 2005, said the archives reflect Polaroid's dynamic evolution. "We're committed to honoring and preserving the legacy of Dr. Land and the evolution of Polaroid as the company continues to grow its successful consumer electronics and eyewear businesses, and looks to expand in other categories." "We are very pleased that these materials, which capture a vital part of American innovation, will be preserved at Harvard Business School," said Tom Beaudoin, Polaroid's Chief Operating and Financial Officer.
