Dana Holding Corporation Records

 File
Identifier: MSS-242

Scope and Contents

The records of the Dana Holding Corporation, formerly known as the Dana Corporation and before that, Spicer Manufacturing, range from a 1891 bond held by a relative of Dana’s founder Clarence Spicer to the January 2012 Toledo Blade obituary for former Dana executive Philip J. Mazziotti. The collection offers an array of research possibilities for anyone interested in not only Toledo history but also the history of the automobile industry, both nationally and internationally. Major figures in the collection include Clarence W. Spicer, Charles A. Dana, Ralph Carpenter, Rene “Ren” McPherson, John “Jack” Martin, Gerry Mitchell, Southwood “Woody” Morcott, and Joseph Magliochetti, among others. There are engineering drawings that offer a glimpse into Spicer’s mind as he developed the encased universal joint, journals that document Spicer’s early years in business, photographs of plants that illustrate the growth of the Dana Corporation, flags, banners, and commendations signed by U.S. President George W. Bush when Dana reached its centennial in 2004, and much more.
