Van Kampen
Research and corporate archive: 75th anniversary in 2002

Like many companies that merge or move more than once over time, much of Van Kampen Investments' early history had been tossed or lost since its founding in the 1920s. With a 75th anniversary fast approaching, the firm hired Milestones to dig into outside historical resources to track down Van Kampen's founders, and then assemble a permanent archive to preserve the company's heritage for future generations. For a quick look at Van Kampen's history, skim the brochure Milestones put together for the company's website. To see the color-illustrated edition, download the free pdf version.
