While the broad facts behind the development of the products and companies associated with Lansing are generally known, they don't always provide an insight into the people and times. This section is devoted to providing a sense of context. It contains significant histories told from a personal perspective and individual recollections. It also contains anecdotal stories related to small pieces of Lansing Heritage that helps to capture a sense of time and place.

"6900 McKinley" provides a photo retrospective of the facility that was home to Lansing Manufacturing and Altec Lansing for nearly two decades.

"Drew's Clues" documents Drew Daniels' take on building the ultimate high efficiency systems using JBL Professional components.

"Edwards Recalls" is a personal recounting by John Edward's of his involvement in the earliest days at JBL.

"History Found" is a remarkable story of chance regarding the rescue of an important piece of Lansing Manufacturing history.

"JBL Graphic Design" is Roger Kennedy's personal account of his involvement in consulting to JBL on the development of its award winning graphics design.

"Kierulff Sound" is a first hand account of the earliest days of the hi-fi phenomenon as told by the inimitable Cap Kierulff.

"Northridge Tour" is a photo essay of the current manufacturing facilities of JBL.

"Peterson Recalls" documents the recollections of the very first employee of Jim Lansing from 1926.
