General view of an exhibition display marketing Toxaphene, a synthetic organic insecticide toxicant manufactured and sold by the Hercules Powder Company. Per notations accompanying the photograph, this exhibit was displayed in Washington, D.C. at the National Farm in March 1950.
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.
