Guide to the J. Walter Thompson Company. Artifacts and Memorabilia Collection, 1888-2004 and undated

Abstract

Founded in 1864, the J. Walter Thompson Company (JWT) is one of the oldest and largest enduring advertising agencies in the United States.

Artifacts and Memorabilia span the years 1888 through 2004, and represent a continuation of Record Group 7 of the J. Walter Thompson Company (JWT) Archives. It is an artificial collection, the items drawn together from numerous accessions and gathered in one group because of their physical natures and purposes, rather than their Provenance. A significant portion of the objects came from the Epcot Worldwide Manager's Meeting, held in May 1984, at which offices displayed objects they used for New Business promotions, personnel recognitions, and other purposes.

Collection Overview

Artifacts and Memorabilia span the years 1888 through 2004, and represent a continuation of Record Group 7 of the J. Walter Thompson Company (JWT) Archives. It is an artificial collection, the items drawn together from numerous accessions and gathered in one group because of their physical natures and purposes, rather than their Provenance. A significant portion of the objects came from the Epcot Worldwide Manager's Meeting, held in May 1984, at which offices displayed objects they used for New Business promotions, personnel recognitions, and other purposes.

Physical storage requirements have necessitated that like items are housed together. Items in the collection have been arranged according to object type. There are 21 object types represented: Awards and Medals; Baseballs; Books; Calendars and Stamps; Christmas Gifts and Ornaments; Coffee Cups and Mugs; Corporate Documents (display items); Desk Objects; Games, Toys, and Equipment; Gifts and Vanity Items; Hats; Invitations and Programs; Logo Stationery Supplies; Plaques; Sculpture and Statues; Sweatshirts and Jackets; Ties and Scarves; Tote Bags; Travel Items; T-Shirts; and Young Tigers Program Memorabilia. In addition, a few items resisted classification, and are grouped as Miscellaneous Items.
