NNRy Archive Department

The Archive Department was established in 2019 to catalog, preserve, digitize and make available the vast paper record of the NNRy. The archive is hosted on an online searchable database called Luna and has been broken in to the following collections:

Use of the Archives

Researchers, genealogists, authors and others can purchase high resolution scans of items in the collection after reviewing the terms and conditions and signing a usage agreement. Pricing is determined on a case by case basis based upon intended use and distribution. All proceeds from these sales are used in the continued care of this amazing collection.

NNRy Employee Profile Collection Program

This program shares the individual stories of the employees of the NNRy, the mine, the smelter and the general offices through online profiles connecting to the Archive collection. To build the collection, the Archive Department is accepting nominations for the program. The only requirements are that the nominee had to have worked for the company here and a profile picture needs to be provided (if one is not already in the archive).
To submit a nomination, simply complete the nomination form.
