BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Keppele Hall was an engineer, contractor, management theorist, superintendent of planning for Joseph & Feiss Company, and member of the National Board of Labor Managers. As a management consultant, he oversaw the implementation of management systems according to the principles enunciated by proponents of scientific management.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Professional papers consist primarily of fragmentary examples of work measurement and job analysis materials used in various manufacturing companies. The documents reflect Hall's effort to apply scientific management principles to practical activities.

(1920); a contract for the Keppele Hall Contracting Company, Dayton, Ohio (1894-1913); and drafts and copies of the Articles of Federation of the National Industrial Federation of Clothing Manufacturers (1919). The papers also reflect Hall's association with Frederick Taylor's colleagues, Richard A. Feiss and Sanford E. Thompson.
