Series 4: Photographic Reference Material
Provenance:
Office Equipment is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.
Restrictions:
Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.

The Electronic Display World is an international, in-depth report on the latest developments in the electronic display industry throughout the world.

The first newsletter was issued in March, 1981.
Scope and Contents note:
Newsletters from 1981 to 1999 documenting the electronic display world industry.
Arrangement:
1 series.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Electronic Display World is an international in-depth report on the latest developments in the electronic display industry throughout the world. The newsletters were published by Stanford Resources, Inc. of San Jose, California, a market research and management consulting firm founded by Joseph Castellano in 1978. The first monthly Electronic Display World report was issued in March of 1981. The objective of the monthly newsletter was to provide the latest information on markets, analyses and forecasts of the economic condition of the industry, applications and technological developments (such as LED's, CRT's, LCD's, vacuum fluorescent display, PLZT ceramics, electrochromics, electrophoretics), and editorial commentary.

Few market research firms were examining markets from both the supply and demand sides to insure a balanced and more accurate view of the present and future of electronic displays. Castellano determined that there was an increasing need for information on future markets for electronic components which included displays. Little information was available on the growing market for new flat panel displays. Hence, Castellano began developing market research techniques for the fledging electronic display industry that took into account both supply and demand. With the help of colleagues, Castellano formulated a plan to develop a market information services for the display industry. The first initiative of Stanford Resources, Inc. was to prepare a report on the market for LCD's which was titled Liquid Crystal Displays in Japan. The popularity and financial success of this report launched Stanford Resources into the display market research field. This approach provided market analysis and forecasting for the industry by an independent observer and prompted Stanford Resources, Inc. to publish an international newsletter devoted strictly to the display industry.

The newsletter was available by subscription only for one or two years. Major corporations that were either manufacturing or using displays were among the subscribers. Electronic Display World was published in both print and electronic form until 2000.
Provenance:
The collection was donated to the Archives Center,by Joseph Castellano, former President and CEO of Stanford Resources, Inc., August 2004.
