Summary:
Photographic negatives, slides, prints and other materials documenting Bethlehem Steel's iron ore mining operations. Almost all were taken by Richard Angelo, though some very early ones that he did not photograph came into his possession. The overwhelming majority (i.e., approximately 23,800) of items in the collection are black-and-white negatives. A smaller number, or approximately 2,000, are color slides, and there are also approximately 500 photo prints. Angelo kept a log of his photographic work, and these are included in the collection. The logbooks correspond to numbered images in the collection. The majority of the photographs depict Bethlehem's mining operations at its Cornwall and Morgantown mines. A smaller number document operations in western Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Michigan and Ontario. Subjects include blasting operations, tunneling, equipment and infrastructure, machinery, employees working, company personnel, company-built community facilities, and many others. Angelo photographed virtually everything the company was involved in.
