ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The Draper Corporation was once the largest maker of power looms for the textile industry in the United States. It operated in Hopedale, Massachusetts for more than 130 years.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

This collection consists mostly of prints from the glass plate negatives in collection 6612 GPN: Draper Corporation Glass Plate Negatives. Collection 6612 GPN consists of two series: Series A, 5 inch by 7 inch glass plate negatives, approximately 1,500; and Series B, 8 inch by 10 inch glass plate negatives, approximately 2,000.
Many of the photographs in Series A depict company outings, or "Field Days." These events were most likely organized by the Draper Company and may have consisted entirely of Draper Company employees. Founders of the Draper Company, brothers George and Ebenezer Draper were responsible for creating an integrated, planned community with innovative employee housing and recreational spaces, in addition to employment.
Series B consists largely of machinery built by the Draper Company. Also included are photographs of the company plant, employee housing, recreational facilities, and the surrounding area.
All negatives in collection 6612 GPN have been printed and included in this collection. Of the roughly 3,500 negatives 513 have been described at the individual level. Those descriptions are available in the container lists for both this collection and collection 6612 GPN.
In addition to the photographs from 6612 GPN, other photographs of Draper Corporation machinery, buildings, employees, and executives are included in this collection.
PROCESSING INFORMATION:

The container list for this collection is not complete. Only those photographs that had descriptions from the American Textile History Museum are included as "Items." The photograph number has been used as the "item number" in order to allow for descriptions for the currently undescribed photographs to be added with any re-numbering.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.A1063. 1891-1895. Image depicts a series of two-story wooden homes facing an unpaved street. The house in the center left has at least three chimneys and two entrances; it is most likely a duplex. It features Tudor-style timbering in the gables. The next house to the right has one front porch but may have two entrances; however, only one chimney is visible. The next house on the right has two entrances, one of each side of the front of the house, and, again, has at least three chimneys. The last house on the right has two entrances and two chimneys. These four homes consist of two different styles, but within each style there are a few differences. A few other houses are partially visible in the background. All were most likely constructed by the Draper Company for company employees. 25 x 20.25 cm.

The sidewalk on the right-hand side of the street is still dirt and there are no trees or bushes. A fire hydrant is on the street, which is wide and unpaved. These houses were built for Draper Company employees. See Box 2, Folder 2, Item 177 for a view of the same section of the street taken from the opposite end, showing more of the houses on what is the left-hand side of the street here. 25 x 20.25 cm.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.A186. 1903- 1906. Image depicts a four-story wooden boarding house. The building has three chimneys visible from this angle and a lightning rod. Shutters have been installed at some of the windows, but the far left side appears to be still under construction. No windows or shutters have been installed on that side, and there are two ladders leaning against the porch roof. (Notes in the accession folder indicate the boardinghouse was "doubled" which may account for the unfinished aspects of it.) A front porch runs the length of the building. The sign "Hopedale House," which can be seen in Box 3, Folder 2, Item 343 and Item 344 has not yet been installed, all of which suggests a date closer to 1903 than 1905, the date for both Box 3, Folder 2, Item 343 and Item 344. A fire escape is visible on the right-hand end of the building. Note the laundry hanging on lines in the back yard on the right. A few bare trees are visible, possibly just planted. Founders of the Draper Company, brothers George and Ebenezer Draper were responsible for creating the integrated, planned community of Hopedale with innovative employee housing and recreational spaces, in addition to employment. See also Box 3, Folder 2, Item 344 for another view of Hopedale House. 25 x 20.25 cm.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.A188. ca. 1900. Image depicts a view of the Adin Ballou house in Hopedale, Massachusetts, a two-story wooden clapboard building with two brick chimneys and shutters on some of the windows. A one-story extension of the house is at the back (or the back portion of the house was constructed as one story). There is a picket fence running parallel to the sidewalk from one side of the house. Ballou (1803-1890) was a prominent proponent of pacifism, socialism and abolitionism, and the founder (in 1842) of the Hopedale Community, a utopian community blending a factory town with a religious-based commune. See Item 199, in this folder, for a view of the house taken from the opposite angle. The house was located at the corner of Peace and Hopedale streets until it was moved to Dutcher Street in 1900; see Box 12, Folder 1, Item 2266 for a view of the house in 1919.

It is unclear which building is which, although the one-story building on the right with the striped awnings may be the office. There is a one-story wooden clapboard building with a tower in the center left; in the background are several three- and four-story brick buildings, all part of the Draper Company complex. The sign on the pole in front of the wooden clapboard building reads: "Private Property. Do No Drive In. Very Dangerous." The wooden clapboard building is at a junction of Hopedale and another street, both unpaved. A set of trolley tracks runs along Hopedale Street. A water tower is on the top of the building at the right in the background. The Draper Company manufactured textile machinery, primarily looms. See Item 136, in this folder, for a view of the buildings on the street to the left of what is shown in this image, and Box 12, Folder 4, Item 165 for a view of the east side of Hopedale Street taken from behind the pole with the sign.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.B160. May 12, 1903. Image depicts a three-story stone building situated on the corner of Hopedale Street (in front of the building) and another, unknown street on the right. The building was designed by architect Fred Swasey of Milford and built in 1886; note the cornerstone with the phrase "anno domini" and the date in Roman numerals. The building appears to be in the Romanesque style, somewhat similar to that of H. H. Richardson. The building has two chimneys and a gabled roof with decorative ironwork running along the upper edge. There are three entrances at the front, one of which is to the post office (note the two windows labeled "Post Office") and another to the left to another business. The curved archway is probably the entrance to the town hall itself. See also Box 3, Folder 2, Item 351. Original photograph by the Draper Company. 25.25 x 20.25 cm.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.B170. May 12, 1903. Image depicts a two-story house with attic, shutters at the windows, and a front porch that stretches the length of the house. A porte-cochere (carriage porch) is barely visible on the left; it appears to be an extension of the porch. The house is set back from Hopedale Street (in the foreground) behind a row of bushes and some lawn. Two trees flank Hopedale Street in front of the house. This is the house in which Charles and Lura Day lived; she was the daughter of Joseph and Sylvia Bancroft. The lot was owned by F. M. Day in the 1890s and was on the corner of Hopedale and Hope streets. Hope Street would be to the right, beyond the edge of the image. The house stands opposite the Bancroft Memorial Library, which was built in 1898. Original photograph by the Draper Company. 25.25 x 20.25 cm.

It is possible the two-story brick building in the center is the office, but it is unclear; the two-story building directly behind it with the one-story extension to the left may all be part of the office. Both buildings have striped awnings on some of the windows. Larger factory buildings can be seen behind in the background on both sides. Hopedale Street is unpaved, as is the street running perpendicularly in the left foreground, but both have sidewalks. There are a number of trees along the street. A set of trolley tracks runs along Hopedale Street. A water tower is on the top of the building at the left in the background. The Draper Company manufactured textile machinery, primarily looms.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.B190. Image depicts a line of houses in Prospect Heights, Milford, Massachusetts The first in the line is a series of connected townhouses, with eight total entrances. The next house appears to be detached (there are two small children in front of it), and then a second set of connected townhouses, with a detached house beyond that, etc. These are two-story brick buildings designed to accommodate multiple families. These buildings feature Tudor-style timbering in the gables on the end building, roofed entrances (some single, some double), and shutters at all the windows (some closed). There are small lawns in front between the houses and the street. Open space is in the foreground. Prospect Heights was built as housing for Draper Company employees, but most houses in Prospect Heights were brick, as opposed to the wooden housing found in Hopedale, Massachusetts The houses are believed to have been designed by Peabody & Stearns.

Printed in 1974 from glass plate negative no.B861. February 11, 1911. Image depicts an unidentified male operative demonstrating how mill operatives would suck the thread through the eye of a shuttle. The man holds the shuttle to his mouth; he would use his right hand to draw the thread out. Mill operatives would draw the thread through their mouths to help smooth it and make it easier to draw through the eye of the shuttle. However, sucking on cotton thread could eventually cause lung problems and did so in many mill operatives. The unidentified man wears work clothes: dark shirt and pants with a light tie. He also wears wire-rimmed glasses. The demonstration takes place in an unidentified mill; the battery of a loom can be seen on the left. He is presumably a Draper Company employee. See Item 862 and Item 863, in this folder, for images of another employee demonstrating this, and Box 15, Folder 2, Item 870 through Item 874 for images demonstrating this procedure using a skeleton. As the Draper Company manufactured textile machinery, primarily looms, and did not manufacture cloth, it is unclear what relation this photograph has to Draper unless it was to demonstrate something with their looms. 20.25 x 25.25 cm.
