General view of an exhibition display for Hercomite explosives manufactured and sold by the Hercules Powder Company. Entitled "Stone to Win!," the display links the use of Hercomite explosives to the mining and collection of raw materials for the ongoing war effort.
Formed in 1912 as part of an anti-trust settlement with DuPont, the Hercules Powder Company (later Hercules Inc.) initially specialized in the manufacture of explosives and smokeless powders and subsequently diversified its business to encompass a variety of industrial products, including pine and paper chemicals, synthetics, pigments, polymers, and cellulose.
