Over the past year, the Joint Archives has been developing a relationship with one of the largest and most successful corporations in the United States. The Amway Corporation, which is located in Ada, Michigan, and whose founders include Mr. Richard DeVos, and Mrs. Jay Van Andel have chosen to work with the Joint Archives of Holland in a cooperative historical preservation effort.
The new relationship between Amway and the Joint Archives/Hope College includes placement of a publicly available research collection including selected materials which will be housed at the Joint Archives facility for public access to the rich historical story of the Amway Corporation. In addition, Joint Archives Director Larry Wagenaar will be assisting the Amway Corporation in putting together an Amway Corporate Archives at one of their Ada facilities.
We look forward to this new and exciting relationship which will preserve the rich historical story of one of America's premier corporations.
