A Brief Introduction to the du Pont Family and the DuPont Company, Part II

Date: Saturday, April 20 2024

On Saturday, April 20, at 1:00 p.m. the Milford Museum will continue its American History Series at the Milford Public Library with a program titled A Brief Introduction to the du Pont Family and the DuPont Company, Part II. Following the popularity of the program in August titled The du Pont Family: A Brief Introduction, historian Lucas R. Clawson returns with the second part of the du Pont family introduction. In the first presentation, the discussion focused on why the du Pont family came to America and how they built a world-wide explosives business. In this second part, the presenter will take the family and company into the 20th century! The program will address how DuPont went from explosives to a variety of products as well as how it responded to many challenges, including two world wars, Congressional investigations, World’s Fairs, and a consumer demand for newer and better things! 
  
Sponsored by the Milford Museum, these monthly programs focus on a variety of topics concerning local, state, and national history.  The Milford Public Library is located at 11 S.E. Front Street in Milford, Delaware. For more information, please contact the Museum at (302) 424-1080, tom@milforddemuseum.org.
