Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Phelps Dodge Corporation collection consists of manuscript drafts, notes, research materials, and interviews compiled by Robert Glass Cleland for his book A History of Phelps Dodge (1952), from 1861-1940.
Phelps Dodge Corporation was an American mining company founded in 1834 as an import-export firm by Anson Greene Phelps and his two sons-in-law William Earle Dodge, Sr., and Daniel James. Originally, Phelps, Dodge & Co. (renamed the Phelps Dodge Corporation after the Copper Queen Consolidated Mining Company acquired its assets in 1917) provided many of the raw materials that fueled America's early industrial expansion and helped build frontier communities of the American West. In 1881, the Phelps Dodge Corporation invested in copper mining in Arizona and continues to mine those claims today.
