Author(s): Bailey E. Berry

Year: 2016


My research records the tasks and methods of everyday production at the Parizek Shell Button cutting station in Central Delaware. In addition, it explores connections to the economy and development of surrounding towns and to the broader national industry. Data were collected through an investigation of the site, research through historical records, and interviews conducted with individuals who have knowledge of the button cutting industry. Data specific to the Parizek Brothers Shell Button Cutting Station also builds on a general understanding of the experience of workers in the shell button industry as well as the narrative of the industry as a whole and its affect on communities in rural Delaware.
