    65 boxes (52 linear ft.). -- Geography and Map Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.


    The Hammond World Atlas Corporation archival collection consists of map sculptures, printing separations, and business records (index cards) that document the 100-year publishing history of the company. Hammond was known for its extensive line of world, historical, school, and thematic atlases, but the company also issued a wide variety of other cartographic items, including maps, globes, and transparencies during the last 100 years. It printed numerous other works, primarily for the educational market. In addition to its own imprints, Hammond's cartographic output was included in the encyclopedias, almanacs, dictionaries, religous texts, and textbooks of many other publishers.
