Lehman Brothers Collection

The Lehman Brothers Collection is an important resource for the study of modern business history and provides scholars with a rare opportunity to access twentieth-century corporate records. The collection consists of two components: company deal book and business records. The deal books document many of Lehman Brothers' notable investment projects from the 1920s to the 1980s. The Lehman Brothers business records cover the administrative operations of the firm from the late 19th century to the 2000s.
