Scope and content

Exterior view of Stauffer Chemical Co. as pictured in the summer of 1976. Stauffer Chemical was located on a nearly 18-acre section of land on the west side of the Blair (formerly Port Industrial) Waterway. It would be sold in 1987 to Rhone-Poulenc Basic Chemicals, a large French chemical company, who would only use a small portion of the plant to make alum, a water purifier, from aluminum sulfate. When Stauffer was in full production, it used to make about 20,000 tons of fertilizer annually. Photograph ordered by Stauffer Chemical Co. (TNT 9-8-93, C-1-article)
