This collection contains an envelope.

Biographical/Historical Note

The envelope in this collection is for the Pittsburgh Reduction Company. Pittsburgh Reduction Company was founded by a group of young men that included Charles Martin Hall, who in 1886 had been the first American to succeed in developing a commercially cheap method of smelting aluminum—by electrolysis. In 1891 the company began producing cast products such as teakettles and aluminum sheeting, as well as raw aluminum; and in 1899 it acquired its first bauxite mining rights. By 1907, when it reincorporated as the Aluminum Company of America, Alcoa, it had numerous mines, alumina plants, hydroelectric facilities, aluminum smelters and fabricating facilities, and the Alcoa Technical Center in Pittsburgh for laboratory research and development.
