Porter W. Yett Company Motion Picture Collection

Repository:Oregon Historical Society, Davies Family Research Library
Summary:The films in the Porter W. Yett Motion Picture Collection were taken by Mr. Yett in the early years of the Swigert, Hart & Yett Company to document their construction projects. They were used for marketing and promotion of the company's services and products. Several cement and concrete projects are featured, including a number of buildings. The collection also contains films taken during trips to Crater Lake, Boston, and New York. Although the Swigert, Hart & Yett Company was founded in 1928, several of the films appear to be earlier than that, perhaps dating from the time Mr. Yett first became interested in concrete mixing trucks, about 1927.
