Consumer Reports Archives to Duke

From Duke Today:
The David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University has acquired the archives of Consumer Reports (CR), the nonprofit consumer organization committed to creating a fair, safe and transparent marketplace for all.

The massive collection -- which spans some 2,800 linear feet and required two tractor trailers to transport to Durham from CR’s headquarters in Yonkers, New York -- includes archival materials, books, photographs, and artifacts documenting the history of the organization, from its founding during the Great Depression to its eventual prominence as a household name for safety, fairness and informed decision-making.
