The Center’s set of seven rolodexes contain thousands of business cards kept by an unknown office in the Los Alamos National Laboratory over the 1960s and 1970s. They provide an interesting snapshot of the types of goods and services provided to the lab at that time, and the companies involved, as well as a gallery of corporate logos and graphic design for technological firms in that era. The rolodexes came from the now dispersed collection of former lab employee Ed Grothus, who operated a salvage company of lab cast-offs known as The Black Hole.
