Hagley Digitizes Collection of Enron Papers and Enron at the OAH

Hagley Museum and Library has digitized its Herbert S. Winokur, Jr., Enron Board Records collection. This collection spans th period from 1997 through 2001 and documents the landmark corporate bankruptcy. Herbert “Pug” Winokur donated his Enron board minutes to Hagley in 2010. This collection includes board minutes, records of the executive, finance, and audit committees, and memoranda and emails. Mr. Winokur also funded the digitization of these records. “This is one of the most complete collections of Enron board records in existence,” according to Lynn Catanese, curator of manuscripts and archives at Hagley. Researchers can either browse the documents, search the collection, or examine the materials by category—for example, press releases, board of directors meetings, and finance committee meetings.
  Coincidentally, the HNN blog features the Saturday plenary session at the Organization of American Historian (OAH) meeting: “Ten Years after the Enron Scandal: Historical Perspectives on the Company's Origins and Growth.” The session, chaired by Naomi Lamoreaux, focuses on a paper by Alan D. Anderson, “Enron and the Transformation of the Natural Gas Industry, 1968-1993.” Commentators were Joseph A. Pratt, Margaret B.W. Graham, and Mary Yeager. The full video of the session can be found on the C-Span website.
