US Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection, 1905-1971

Presented by the Indiana University Library Program and the Calumet Regional Archives, the US Steel Gary Works Photograph Collection provides access to more than 2,200 digital images documenting the creation of the world's largest steel mill during the height of America's industrial revolution. While the tour takes Internet users through the building of the U.S. Steel Gary Works, it also depicts the life of the city during this period. Not only is this site a valuable resource for scholars and historians of American history and the Industrial Revolution, it also meets the needs of school teachers and students. The site includes a teacher's guide equipped with lesson plans, learning objectives, and online activities for classroom use for fourth grade, middle school, and high school teachers. In addition, viewers can either perform a basic, advanced, or ID search, or browse this easily navigable site by subject, date, or box.
