This collection consists of time books from the Rigger and Paint departments of the Republic Steel Corporation during the period 1936 - 1945. Time books are a record of hours worked by employees, usually tabulated by day and week. Materials are arranged by series, and then chronologically within each series. The primary function of the rigger was to dismantle, move, and erect all types of structures and heavy equipment that were used for plant construction and maintenance. Paint Department personnel were responsible for interior and exterior hand and spray painting of mill structures, office buildings, and equipment. For historical background on the Republic Steel Corporation, please refer to the company history file.
