Historical Note

Compared with the other lumber companies whose records are held in the lumber archives at the University of Mississippi, the firm of Andrew Brown (and Son) and its immediate successor company, R. F. Learned Lumber Company, whose Natchez sawmill facility represents the oldest continuously operated enterprise of its kind in the United States, has received sub stantial research attention. Two extensive scholarly treatments, in particular, may be cited: Charles Wann Crawford's A History of the R. F. Learned Lumber Company 1865 1900 and Moore's Andrew Brown and Cypress Lumbering in the Old Southwest.

Scope and Contents Note

Collection consists of correspondence, business records, various account books and journals, photographs, pamphlets, and reports related to the Andrew Brown (and Son), and its immediate successor company, R.F. Learned Lumber Company created during the years 1837-1974.

The records of the R. F. Learned Lumber Company comprise approximately 53 linear feet of unbound materials housed in 106 HoIlinger boxes and over 150 bound volumes of financial records. A folder by folder inventory has been prepared for materials held in the Brown Learned Collection. Generally, correspondence has been sorted out of purely business and financial records and has been filed separately. Any correspondence, however, clearly dealing with a specific financial record has been retained together with its associated financial record and the entire record then filed with corres pondence. No differentiation in these records has been made between personal and business correspondence, although the preponderance of personal corres pondence falls in the period before 1930.

Records for Andrew Brown and Son begin in 1831 and end in 1869. After 1869 records are under the heading "R. F. Learned." Materials in the collection have been ordered in the following manner:

  • A. Brown: Correspondence
  • A. Brown: Business Records
  • R. F. Learned: Corespondence
  • R. F. Learned: Business Records
  • Learned: Natchez Ice Co.
  • Natchez Dept. Store (Andrew B. Learned in co op w Britton & Koontz Bank)
  • Learned Plantations

All correspondence (both Brown and Learned) has been sorted chrono logically by day, month, and year. Business records initially were processed according to a similar scheme. However, to expedite sorting this scheme was not pursued for all of the records. Consequently, some of the records have been sorted only by year, leaving part of the records more thoroughly sorted chronologically than others.

As a result of indifferent custodial care prior to their donation the University of Mississippi, a significant portion of the Andrew Brown Collection is in very poor condition. Examples of water damaged, mud spotted, and insect ravaged records are not uncommon in these records. Other records have been subjected to human abuse in the form of excessive rubber cementing of records and tissue paper application. Before sorting, these documents were separated and cleaned although the exuberance of rubber cementing has reduced considerably the legibility and utility of many of the Brown records. While much care was exercised in cleaning and removing cement from the Brown records, nonetheless, some of the records could not be treated without causing further damage to the records. In some cases tissue paper had been affixed previously to the face of a record obscuring the record's content.

Non lumber centered enterprises of the Learned Company have been separated and filed discretely (i.e., Natchez Ice Co., Natchez Dept. Store, and Learned Plantations). However, correspondence dealing with the Natchez Ice Company, the Natchez Department Store, etc., have been subsumed into the general correspondence of the R. F. Learned Company. Correspondence dealing with the Learned Plantations is held in Hollinger box preceding plantation business records. These plantation records are relatively extensive and span the years 1875 1957. The paucity of legal records (i.e. deeds, insurance policies, etc.) in the Learned Collection did not warrant their separation into a distinct category. Hence, all such records have been placed with business and financial records.

The bound financial records embrace in nearly comprehensive fashion for Andrew Brown, daybooks, journals, ledgers, cashbooks, order books, tally books, and payroll records for the period 1831 1869. Bound financial records of R. F. Learned Lumber Company are comparably complete from 1872 to the mid 1950's, although gaps in the records for both com panies should be apparent in the inventory.

Areas of potential interest to researchers in the Brown Learned records include materials relating to wage and slave labor (Andrew Brown day journals), although post bellum records do not denote racial cate gories for laborers. Nonetheless, the records should prove useful in providing data on broader issues of labor conditions and practices. Both the Brown and Learned records document fully company growth patterns, management practices, logging techniques, manufacturing procedures, adver tising strategies, and transportation mediums and innovations. The Brown records, especially, will be helpful to researchers interested in documenting provenance and in dating construction materials used in ante bellum Natchez.
