Annual report issued to Stockholders of the Rohm and Haas Company for the year 1966. The report includes a letter from company president F.O. Haas, with information on sales, earnings, and dividends, as well as updates on construction projects. The report notably includes photographs of the geodesic dome glazed with Plexiglas acrylic plastic constructed to house the United States exhibit at Expo 67, the world's fair at Montreal.
The Rohm and Haas Company was founded in 1907 in Esslingen, Germany through the partnership of German chemist Otto Röhm and German businessman Otto Haas. In 1933, Röhm's experiments with the polymerization of methyl methacrylate led to the creation of a clear, solid plastic sheet, which he trademarked Plexiglas. During World War II, the demand for Plexiglas, which both Allied and Axis forces used for submarine periscopes and aircraft windshields, canopies, and gun turrets, helped transform Rohm and Haas into a major chemical firm.
