Creator:
Bethlehem Steel Company.
Extent: 75 linear feet
The Bethlehem Steel Company (operating company of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation) was formed April 17, 1899, for the purpose of enlarging the powers and physical plant of the Bethlehem Iron Company. After Charles M. Schwab reorganized the United States Shipbuilding Company into the Bethlehem Steel Corporation in 1904, the Bethlehem Steel Company remained its steelmaking subsidiary until 1964, when it was merged into the Bethlehem Steel Corporation. The records of the Bethlehem Steel Company are arranged into eleven separate series by department or division, though much of the records remaining from these Departments and Divisions are fragmentary, and do not make up a complete corporate archive.
