3 Million Artifacts Reflect the History of NCR and Dayton, Ohio
Duluth, Ga., May 25, 2017 – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, has gifted Dayton History with 3 million historical artifacts valued at more than $3 million dollars. These artifacts chronicle the beginning of NCR in Dayton, Ohio, and growth around the world; the history of Dayton, Ohio, and the surrounding areas; and even help tell the story of the U.S. industrial revolution.
“Gifting our historical collection to Dayton History is a celebration of the community’s contributions to NCR and our contributions to the city of Dayton, and ensures that generations to come will have access to pieces of that history,” said NCR Foundation Lead Yvonne Whitaker. “We’ve had a long relationship with Dayton History and look forward to our continued partnership, as we will borrow from the collection to display in our new global headquarters campus in Atlanta, which will open in early 2018.”
The donated NCR Archive collection includes images and artifacts documenting NCR’s history, hundreds of 20th century cash registers and business machines, and the furnishings from the estate home of NCR’s third CEO Edward Deeds, who was also the founder of Dayton History’s Carillon Park Museum.
“This is a tremendous gift from NCR to Dayton History and the Dayton region,” said Brady Kress, president and CEO, Dayton History. “The NCR collection contains one of the region’s largest, single segments of its history, documenting thousands of families and multiple generations of Daytonians. The impact NCR had on the growth of the region is immeasurable, and the archive contains and tells those stories.”
Hundreds of items are already on display at Carillon Historical Park and more than 50,000 images are digitized and available online at www.daytonhistory.org. With NCR’s gift, the stage is set for Dayton History to expand their exhibits and invest in related educational programming.
