About this collection

Frederick Winslow Taylor, Stevens Class of 1883, was the inventor and engineer who pioneered the application of engineering principles and time study to production and shop management. The field he created, scientific management, is still refined and used in industry today. The collection consists largely of Taylor's personal and work-related correspondence, including his communications with companies interested in implementing scientific management. Also included are rough drafts of his major publications, translations of his works on scientific management and the cutting of metal, examples of forms developed to improve shop efficiency, glass slides of factories and offices using scientific management, articles written by Taylor on his system, and responses from readers. Correspondents include Louis Brandeis, Morris Llewellyn Cooke, Ida Tarbell, Henry Gantt, and the administrative officers of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
