Researchers can browse the Lehman Brothers deal books by one of three points of access: the date of the deal, the company name at the time of the deal, or industry type.

The Lehman Brothers Collection project staff prepared company histories for all companies represented in the deal books in order to provide both a framework for understanding the individual deals and a record of the growth of modern corporate America. The information provided at http://www.library.hbs.edu/hc/lehman/chrono.html only covers the company history up to the time of the deal represented in the deal book.

To write these histories, staff consulted print resources including company histories, annual reports, prospectuses, The International Directory of Company Histories, Moody's Industrials, and Notable Corporate Chronologies. They also used, when appropriate, electronic sources including The Capital Changes Reporter, Factiva, Hoover's Online, Lexis/Nexis, and ABI/ProQuest.
