Administrative and Corporate History

By helping managers, staff, and stakeholders understand their past, our administrative and corporate histories enhance a company’s ability to address issues, evaluate and develop policy, formulate strategic plans, and direct change.

Starting with clear prose and compelling illustrations, these histories take many shapes. From books and brochures to video documentaries, websites, and interpretive exhibits, we find the right media to most effectively tell each story

Our services include:

  • Research in agency/company records and archives
  • Oral history interviews and transcription
  • Historical analysis and report writing
  • Records management
  • Development of brochures, pamphlets, website and social media content, museum exhibits, and documentary films.
