General Motors of Holidays Past
If you are like us at the Kettering University Archives, you enjoy the cheer and nostalgia that comes with Christmas and the New Year celebrations. We thought it would be an excellent idea to present the General Motors collections that reflect the holiday season. General Motors celebrated the holidays with their employees and customers. Their interest in the holidays show through in the materials exhibited in the slideshow, which are only a small sampling of similar material available at the Archives.
You will find 25 items shown in the slideshow, which span from the 1900s through the 1960s and include various General Motors divisions: AC Spark Plug, Buick, Cadillac, Fisher Body, Frigidaire, and General Motors Institute. The materials include sales booklets, sales displays, photographs of holiday parties, and Christmas cards. If you would like to research these collections, or any others, please contact the Archives by phone at 810-762-9890 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
