Accession Number: 970826
Description: One document case


Content and Scope of the Collection

This collection was generated from miscellaneous material filed in Special Collections and Archives. It contains promotional brochures and booklets published and distributed by the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce. The material is primarily geared for newcomers to Terre Haute and to attract new business and industry to the area.

These publications give a wide-range of information on the city and Vigo County, and many of them cover a variety of topics. Some of these topics include public schools, colleges, parks, libraries, churches, social service organizations, recreation, sports, transportation and entertainment as well as historical highlights, local ads, maps, photographs of local scenes, and current information and statistics about Terre Haute and Vigo County. The material is particularly valuable because it spans several decades (circa 1943 to 1997) and, therefore, shows subtle changes in the city and how it is presented over time.

For related material, see the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce Collection (Accession Number 821013) and the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce Commercial Club Collection (Accession Number OV 4).
