Cardion Electronics, Inc. Collection
Cardion Electronics, Inc. (later ISC Cardion Electronics, Inc.), which was owned by a number of different parent companies over the years, designed and manufactured electronics, specializing in navigational aids.
The collection, which spans the years 1980-1997, includes issues of a newsletter written by and for employees of Cardion Electronics, Inc.’s plants in Holtsville and Woodbury, Long Island, and in Ontario, Canada. The newsletter changed names several times, from The Wood-Holts News to The Cardion Pulse to Sights & Sounds. Also included are issues of Being Healthy, a fitness magazine that Cardion subscribed to and distributed among its employees; financial records concerning Cardion’s subscription to Being Healthy; a promotional mailing concerning the newsletter Top Health (one issue of the newsletter is included); and, a photograph album (with captions) that documents the collapse, in 1991, of the roof of the Woodbury plant’s engineering department. The album also includes photographs of the roof’s repair and the eventual reopening of the building in February 1992.
