Indianapolis, Indiana:. 1945.. 11" x 8-1/2". ~ 75 leaves.. Custom binding of stiff stock buff paper covers, with 3 individual binder rings.. A few of the final leaves detached, otherwise a Very Good plus item.. Stang, an engineer who took his Electrical Engineering degree from Iowa State College in 1912, begins his scrapbook [which is arranged with most recent material first] 2 years prior with two 1910 photographs of "Interior Views of Machine Shop". This wonderful personal compilation continues to document Stang's professional history through 1945, where he had risen to the position of Chief Engineer of the C. C. Perry Power Station, Indianapolis Power & Light Company [50,000 KW Capacity & 175 employees]. & & Herein will be found ~ 30 TLs [to/from Stang to others in the industry, which have Stang's divers positions or position-seeking as a focus], ~ 15 newspaper clippings on Stang and/or the Iowa/Ohio power companies, 75+ photographs [1910 - 1935] visually documenting primarily workplaces, electrical power-generating gear & divers electrical plant projects [e.g., 5 captioned 1918 photos, the US Army Chlorine Division, Edgewood Arsenal & 20+ captioned 1915 "Progress Pictures - New Boiler Room Addition" the Des Moines Electric Co. Power Station on the Des Moines river], 5 industry newsletters [primarily 1930s], and ~ 15 other documents including diagrams [e.g., West Penn Power Company Cross Section No. 6 Unit]; a blueprint of the Rotary Conversion Bldg, Chlorine Plant, a photostat diagram of the 1918 Penn Water & Power System & a 'Facts & Features' brochure for Scioto Power Station.& & An invaluable visual & documentary history recording the career of this midwest professional, whose business life spaned World War One, as well as the Great Depression. Not only do we see what steps this man took to stay employed during the lean years of the 1930s, we have documentation, photographic & otherwise, of the physical plant for a number of midwest power generation facilities such as that of the Columbus, Delaware & Marion Electric Company. Unique, and irreplaceable.
