The Company Reports Collection, 1946-2010

 

         The Company reports collection contains approximately 700 annual reports and Form 10-K  filings from approximately sixty corporations (and several non-profit organizations) either headquartered in Idaho or with a significant business presence in the state.  Most reports are dated in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.  The companies reflect both the traditional natural resource-based economy of Idaho (mining, agriculture, and forest products) as well as new technologies developed in the latter half of the 20th century.  Home-grown companies such as Boise Cascade and Potlatch (forest products), Hecla Mining Company (precious metals),  Idaho Power (electricity), J.R. Simplot Company (agricultural products), and Micron Technology (semiconductors) are represented; so are national business giants that had their beginnings in Idaho, like Albertson's (a grocery chain) and Morrison-Knudsen (an international construction and engineering firm). Also included are some firms headquartered out of state but with a significant Idaho presence, such as Hewlett-Packard (which established its printer division in Boise in 1973) and regional banks and telecommunications companies that serve the state.  A few national firms that acquired Idaho-based companies, such as H.J. Heinz (which bought the Ore-Ida brand of food products) and the Gannett Company (owner of Boise's daily newspaper, the Idaho Statesman) are also represented.  Reports from national retail firms (Sears, K-Mart, etc.) are not included in the collection.

 

            The annual reports vary greatly from company to company in terms of detail.  Some contain extensive financial and statistical information; others are more in the form of narrative summaries of the year's activities.  The Form 10-K filings are financial reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  Most annual reports coincide with the calendar year, but a few cover July-June fiscal years.  The early reports from Albertson's covered a fiscal year running from February through January. 

 

            Most of these reports were obtained on a yearly or occasional basis directly from the companies themselves and were part of a large collection of reports from several thousand companies nationwide.  They were originally housed in the Library's Reference Department and  used mainly by business and graphic arts students.  By 2005 the use of the printed reports had so diminished (because of their availability on the Internet), that the collecting program was discontinued.  Reports from Idaho and Idaho-related companies were transferred to the Special Collections Department for permanent retention.  New reports are occasionally added to the collection as acquired.

 

            Companies and other organizations represented by reports are listed below in alphabetical order, with the exception of mining companies, which are listed separately at the end.  The reports are housed with Special Collections' serials, in boxes 300 through 358 of the department's serials collection.
