Abstract:
The H.J. Heinz Company was founded in 1869 by Henry John Heinz (1844-1919). By the second half of the 20th century, the H.J. Heinz Company had become the global corporation we know today. By 1995, the H.J. Heinz Company's global sales were over 8 billion dollars with almost half coming from its overseas operations and seventy percent from non-Heinz brand products.

History of the H.J. Heinz Company (Pittsburgh, Pa.) (1869-1995)

Collection Scope and Content Note

The types of photographic material include gelatin dry plate negatives (glass plate negatives), acetate negatives, prints, oversized prints, photograph albums, and 4x5 prints with negatives illustrating the H.J. Heinz Company between 1893 and 1991. The three series primarily depict work in the Heinz factory in Pittsburgh, finished products, equipment, employees, salesmen, and executives. Very few of the photographs document the earliest period of the H.J. Heinz Company between 1876 and 1900 or the most recent period of the Heinz Company between 1975 and the present. Well represented, however, are the product images and factory floor views between 1900 and 1965. Many of the photographs in the Prints (Alphabetical) series are either undated or unidentified. The two print series contain far more images than the negative series and should be consulted first. For the oldest scenes of the factory, however, the glass plate negatives are the best source. The majority of acetate negatives have corresponding prints in the Prints (Chronological) Series and can be found by using the identification number written on the negative. The glass plate negatives can be viewed on a light table, although contact prints have been made for some. Note that all of the negatives have been described and entered into a database which can be searched efficiently to locate specific images.

A portion of the H.J. Heinz Company Photographs have been digitized and are accessible online at http://images.library.pitt.edu/h/hjhz/.


This collection is arranged in three series. Series have been designated for Prints (Alphabetical), Prints (Chronological), and Negatives.

The H.J. Heinz Company Collection is housed in 33 archival boxes and is arranged alphabetically by folder title with oversized items and loose volumes arranged to the rear.

Scope and Content Notes:

The photographic prints are housed in 89 archival boxes. The 8x10 prints are housed in 32 archival boxes and are primarily black-and-white prints between 1936 and 1972. There are many images of equipment, products, and unidentified employees and executives. Many of the acetate negatives discussed below are duplicated in this subseries. At this time, only a small percentage of prints has been made for the glass plate and acetate negatives. The 4x5 prints are housed in 55 archival boxes. This subseries contains both prints and their corresponding negatives. The 4x5 prints illustrate similar subjects as the 8x10 prints, but there are many more prints in this group. Included in this subseries are images of advertisements, products, buildings, company meetings and functions, conventions, and plants between 1933 and 1968. There is an excellent card catalog of all of these images. Please ask for assistance when looking for specific images.

8x10 prints constitute one series and 4x5 prints constitute the other series.

The photographic prints are arranged chronologically in two subseries. The prints for the glass plate negatives and some of the acetate negatives in the collection are arranged in the back (Box 89) of the 8x10 print subseries.

Series III Negatives c1864-1972
Scope and Content Notes:

There are approximately five hundred glass plate negatives (in 25 boxes) which primarily cover the period from 1900 to about 1932. The over three hundred acetate negatives (in three boxes) encompass the period from 1920 until 1972. As mentioned above, the glass plate negatives predominately illustrate the various activities in the Pittsburgh factory including labeling, packaging, of products. In addition there are numerous studio photos of finished products such as pickles, baked beans, and apple butter. Views of buildings at the plant are prominent as well. Specific glass plates which are significant are a copy of a portrait of H.J. Heinz at age 21 from 1864, interior and exterior views of the Heinz Pier in Atlantic City, N.J., and images of the "Little House Where We Began" moving on a barge from Sharpsburg in 1904. Scenes of other plants around the country can also be found. There are seven boxes of broken glass plates arranged chronologically at the end of this subseries.

The acetate negatives contain similar images of the factory and products, only later in time. There is some overlap in the dates of the acetate negatives and glass plate negatives due to the gradual replacement of the latter photographic process. The acetate negatives, however, contain a large number of product displays in grocery stores. There are gaps in the dates of the acetate negatives between 1950 to 1956 and 1960 to 1968. The acetate negatives arranged in alphabetical order primarily contain images of finished products and the films Ever Since Eden and Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

The negatives are arranged in three groups or subseries with glass plate negatives constituting one subseries, acetate (or flexible) negatives arranged in chronological order constituting another subseries, and acetate negatives arranged in alphabetical order constituting the last subseries.

The photographic negatives are housed in 28 archival boxes and arranged chronologically.
