1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993 annual reports and associated proxies have been
added. Also, the 1994 Form 10-K has been added, in addition to the 135
page Offering Circular/Prospectus that was to swap shares of Borden, Inc. for
RJR Holdings Corp., which KKR had owned. This is a very in-depth document,
and details every point of the the proposed KKR acquisition of Borden, Inc.
The Offering Circular/Prospectus took us a full day to scan, and is completely
searchable through you PDF reader programme, and is quite interesting to read
the various details.

After going through our extensive archives, we were able to locate numerous Borden annual and quarterly reports, and we have been acquiring older reports to
add to our archives, and quickly scanning them and making them freely available
to our digital archives for research. 1979, 1986, 1987, and 1988 have been
added, and our goal is to scan and digitize reports up to 1995 from Borden.
After 1995, there are no longer any reports available, as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts
& Co. (KKR) acquired Borden in the fourth quarter 1994.

Today, the Borden Archives, formerly known as the Borden Memorial web site, has
finally received the attention that it was due. Since the launch of The
Porticus centre in 2003, the only two parts of our historical archives sections
that were given much notice were; The Bell System Memorial, and Beatrice Foods
Memorial (now Beatrice Archives). Borden never did get much attention
until we started to go through our archives and decided that it was time to
upgrade the Borden site, and add more documents.
Our staff has spent the past week scanning and archiving many documents that
have not been seen in decades, and we hope that those of you familiar with
Borden will appreciate what we have done so far. We are missing some
items, like news letters, annual reports, and other printed material. We
are trying to preserve what we can, and if you, or anyone you know that has a
stash of Borden material, let us know.
Our site has gone through so much change, and to experience all that we have
done, simply explore the links to the left. Certain links will not
function, such as "Borden History", "Elsie & Elmer", and
"Testimonials & Member
Site". These have not been setup yet, but will notify you on this page of
any new developments.
