Total Volume:  Over 45,000 cubic feet of documents, books, periodicals, photographs, moving images, sound recordings and microforms as well as 15,000 three-dimensional objects.

Description:  The AT&T Archives and History Center traces the origins, development and achievements of the AT&T companies, with roots extending to Alexander Graham Bell’s invention of the telephone in 1876.  In 1984, the century-old Bell System was broken up by an agreement between the U.S. Department of Justice and the former American Telephone and Telegraph Co. (a.k.a. “Ma Bell,” which became AT&T Corp. in 1994).  Out of the divestiture was born Southwestern Bell Corp. (renamed SBC Communications Inc. in 1995) and six other “Baby Bells.”  Shortly after the signing of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, SBC Communications Inc. began acquiring some of its siblings: Pacific Telesis Group (1997), Southern New England Telecommunications Corp. (1998) and Ameritech Corp. (1999).  In a strategic alliance, SBC and BellSouth Corp. pooled their wireless properties, forming Cingular Wireless LLC (2000).  Upon the acquisition of its former parent AT&T Corp. (2005), SBC renamed itself AT&T Inc.  The “new” AT&T soon purchased BellSouth (2006) to become the largest telecom company in the world. AT&T later acquired DIRECTV (2015), further transforming itself into the world’s largest pay TV provider.
