The John Morrell and Company, Sioux Falls Plant Records consist of photographs, negatives, printed materials, and scrapbooks of John Morrell and Company since the construction of its Sioux Falls meatpacking plant in 1911. The photographic collection contains interior and exterior scenes of workers and equipment. One series of photographs covers the construction of the first John Morrell and Company plant in Sioux Falls. Printed materials include a set of "Morrell's Magazine" (1945-1965), a company-published periodical, and "Trimmings" a wartime magazine reporting on the activities of former plant employees serving in the armed forces during the Second World War. Both periodicals were published at the national headquarters (Ottumwa, IA) level, but both include references to Sioux Falls branch happenings. The John Morrell and Company, Sioux Falls Plant Records are available at the Center for Western Studies.
