To supplement classroom instruction at the Harvard Business School—where there was an increasing focus on industrial relations during the Great Depression—Harvard colleagues Donald Davenport and Frank Ayres acquired corporate images illustrating the interaction of worker and machine. They ultimately gathered more than 2,100 photographs, produced from the 1920s to the early 1940s, from leading companies in the United States and abroad.
Now organized as the Industrial Life Photograph Collection, ca. 1920-1941, the photographs are availalbe to researchers at Baker Library Historical Collections at Knowledge and Library Services, Harvard Business School.
Women Working includes 107 photographs from this extraordinary collection.
