William du Pont was the youngest son of General Henry du Pont (1812-1889) and Louisa Gerhard du Pont (1816-1900). He worked for the first DuPont dynamite manufacturer, Repauno Chemical Company, as secretary and treasurer (1880-1884) and after the tragic death of Lammot du Pont (1831-1884), as president (1884-1892). The William du Pont papers primarily encompass the years of his active business life from the early 1880s to his death in 1928. There are also some papers from his early life and after his death.
Richmond Public Library’s digital photograph collection includes two hundred sixty photographs of historical interest on the City of Richmond from its earliest beginnings to 2007. There are photographs of the early settlers, local businesses, major industries, civic buildings, residences and neighborhoods. Prominently represented are the Standard Oil Company, the Pullman Company, and the Kaiser Shipyards. A small selection of color photographs document industries and buildings which still exist in the city today. Many of the historic photographs were taken by the Cheney Photo Advertising Company and from the Jack M. Barry collection. The color photographs were taken by staff member Rose Cheney (no relation to the Cheney Company.)
