Place:
Celanese House (New Canaan, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- New Canaan
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, copies of articles about the property, and additional information about the house and garden.
General:
Celanese House was designed in 1958-59 by Edward Durell Stone as a commission from the Celanese Corporation of America. New Canaan contractor Theodore (Ted) de Freyne Hobbs had acquired the property in 1957 as a development venture and he bore all of the construction costs except for the architect's fee. Celanese furnished the materials free or at cost for publicity rights and national press coverage resulted following the home's completion (the property was sold to Frederick and Velma Willcox in 1960). The landscape architect for the project was James Fanning. Interior spaces opened to terraces screened by latticework to provide privacy. Surrounded by trees, a lawn at the rear of the property featured curving flagstone and fieldstone stairs and fieldstone walls. The terraces provided ample outdoor living space and featured hanging plants as well as more formally placed shrubs and other design features.
Persons and firms associated with the site include James Fanning (landscape architect,1959); Edward Durell Stone (architect, 1958-1959); Theodore de Freyne Hobbs (contractor, 1958-1959); Frederick and Velma Willcox (former owners, 1960-2005); and Celanese Corporation of America (corporate sponsor, 1958-1959).

Summary:
Audio recordings of interviews with members of the Plastics Pioneers Association about the plastics industry, its origins, and evolution.
Scope and Contents:
The collection consists of four 1/4 inch open-reel audiotapes produced in 1968.
Biographical / Historical:
The Plastic Pioneers Association (PPA) was formed in the 1940s to provide individuals involved with plastics invention, innovation, and manufacturing an opportunity to meet with colleagues to share stories about the history of plastics. In 1948 the PPA became a formal organization "of individuals who are persons of accomplishment in the Plastics Industry, and who wish to foster the bonds of friendship and fraternalism among them." At the time, in order to be a member an individual had to have made "a contribution to the growth of the industry and worked at least fifteen years plastics. According to the PPA webiste, membership currently "is capped at 250 active members, and the term of service in the industry required is 25 years or more."

The PPA is dedicated to education as well as documenting and preserving the histories of people who contributed to the plastics industry. The Plastic Pioneers Interviews represents part of this effort
