Temple Industries Corporate Office Collection, 1978-2006

0.33 cubic foot

The corporate office building in Diboll was originally conceived in 1977 to be the headquarters of Temple-Eastex. Chairman Arthur Temple, Jr. and President Joe C. Denman hired architects Ernest Grossman and Don McClarty to build a new headquarters that reflected the East Texas environment, pay homage to the trees that sustained the company, as well as showcase its status as a Time, Inc. subsidiary. This collection contains correspondence, site plans, architect proposals, and budgets for the construction of the new corporate office in 1980, the satellite building in 1988, and renovations completed in 2006. Additionally, there is a list of office staffing counts from 1980 to 1993.
