Records of the Milwaukee Solvay Quarter Century Club (1943-1983), an association of veteran employees of Milwaukee Solvay Coke Company, a manufacturer of coke and coke byproducts. The records document the club's activities and development, and include constitutions and bylaws, correspondence between club directors, membership lists, membership death notices, minute books, photographs of club activities and company facilities, secretary's reports, Christmas cards and Christmas party programs, company histories, and a small quantity of the papers of club historian Herbert Hinz. The club was devoted mainly to social activities and to the recognition of longtime company employees. The collection contains publications issued by Milwaukee Solvay and its parent companies, including the Schlesinger Interests' Conveyor (1914-1921), the Koppers Company's Koppers News (1928-1930), the Milwaukee Solvay News (1942-1962), the Pickands, Mather and Company Producer (1966-1972), and a catalog of the Newport Company (1921). The publications provide limited documentation regarding the operations of Milwaukee Solvay and its parent companies.
