Paul Grinberg Reston C0149
Published by George Mason University Libraries
Paul Grinberg served as treasurer of Reston Incorporated in 1967. During that time Reston was in a transition period when the founder, Robert E. Simon, Jr., faced bankruptcy. The principal investor, Gulf Oil Corporation formed a subsidiary, Gulf Reston, Inc. in 1967 and took complete financial and operational control. Paul Grinberg created this collection during the period from the founding of Reston and concludes with the transfer of control.
The Paul Grinberg Reston collection consists of one document case. The documents in the collection consist mostly of marketing and business reports on Reston from 1962 to 1968.
The only series in this collection consists of subject files that include various financial and planning reports prepared for Palindrome Corporation, a Reston clipping file, and publicity materials.
Organized into one series.
Collection is open to research.
There are no restrictions.
The Special Collections and Archives also holds the Planned Community Archives and other personal papers and organizational records that document Reston, Virginia, and other planned communities.

The Paul Grinberg Reston collection was originally attached to the larger Planned Community Archives collection currently in the Special Collections and Archives. In 2009 the documents were removed and organized into a separate collection still housed in the Special Collections and Archives at George Mason University Libraries. The old box and folder numbers are also included as part of the new arrangement.
