The history of the Gillette Company in Boston; its products and people.

About: Why the world needs more information about The Gillette Co.

with one comment

Gillette existed as an independent company from 1901 until 2001 when it was merged/submerged into P&G. I had a chance to archive this amazing company from the summer of 2006 to late spring 2008. I have, in my head, and because of my interests, a file cabinet, full of ads and stories about Gillette; wars, expansion, globalization and The Company’s relationship to Boston and specifically South Boston.

  1. What you have posted looks like a wonderful collection! I am very interested in the history of the Gillette company and its founder King Gillette and as a part of my research have many questions about your archive and apparent knowledge of Gillette related business, objects, and ephemera.

    If at all possible, I would most appreciate it if you might be willing to contact me at my email address so I might let you know about my specific interests in Gillette and ask a variety of Gillette related questions.

    Thank you.
