Biographical Note

The genesis of the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company traces back to the marriage of Lorenzo Nolley Dantzler to Erin Griffin, daughter of William Griffin, a proprietor of an antebellum Mississippi lumber mill. Following service in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, Dantzler returned home to become a partner in the William Griffin Lumber Company. At the dissolution of the partnership in 1873, Dantzler exchanged his interest in the company for a saw mill.

In 1880, he formally established the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company which included two saw mills and a shingle mill along the Pascagoula River in the Moss Point/Gulfport area. Dantzler completed construction of the most modern double circular mill for the coastal country by 1885. On 1 March 1988, the business was incorporated as the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company with outstanding capital assets of $200,000 and became one of the first chartered private corporations in the state of Mississippi. With mill additions at Howison and Handsboro and a new mill constructed at Moss Point, the company was producing 90,000,000 board feet of lumber annually. It exercised a virtual monopoly over raw materials in the area, forcing one competing mill after another out of business. By 1910, only three fairly large concerns remained in the Moss Point/Pascagoula area.

A second major phase of expansion occurred in 1906 following a devastating hurricane which struck and leveled over 200,000,000 feet of company timber. The company quickly set up new mills and storage areas, while placing non-damaged mills on a day and night work schedule in order to salvage the company’s timber. Taking full advantage of the natural calamity, The L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company purchased the lumber of similarly devastated rival companies at a fraction of the prevailing market rate. This opportunism allowed the company to make a windfall profit and to weather the timber panic of 1907.

In 1910, the company took over operation of the Bond Lumber Company and later in 1915 purchased the company outright. The L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company also purchased the Ten Mile Lumber Company in 1910 and erected a mill at Kiln in partnership with Edward Hines. Another mill at Piave was acquired and owned jointly by Dantzler and the Standard Export Company headed by J.L. Dantzler.

By 1913, the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company foresaw the end of virgin timber in Mississippi and moved to acquire timber holdings elsewhere. That year, it bought a timber concession in Nicaragua but political instability in Managua prevented development of the property. In partnership with the H. Weston Lumber Company, L.N. Dantzler also bought timberland in Oregon but never utilized the property. The same pattern followed for an undeveloped concession on Prince Edward Island. Eventually, the company began a reforestation program.

Since the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company chiefly exported their production, they eventually sought to become involved in distribution. They owned over twenty barges, sailing vessels, and tugs as well as 200 miles of railroad, 300 log cars, and twenty-four steam locomotives. In partnership with the international timber merchants Price and Pierce, the Standard Export Company operated out of New Orleans and was led by L.N. Dantzler’s son J.L. Dantzler. In 1924, L.N. Dantzler and his son organized the Dantzler Lumber and Export Company in Tampa, Florida. Export lumber shipped to South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.

The company suffered losses in its export markets due to dislocations caused by World War I. With American entry into the conflict, it recovered and realized a profit in excess of $7,000,000 in 1919.

Other Dantzler subsidiaries or affiliates were Native Lumber Company, Cedar Lake Mill Company, Vancleave Lumber Company, Jordan River Lumber Company, Dantzler Foundry and Machine Works, Gulf Ship Company, Pascagoula Towing Company, Bethune Turpentine Company, Ellen Dee Turpentine Company, and Kirby Turpentine Company. L.N. Dantzler was also president of the Dantzler Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company. He owned a majority interest in the Standard Lumber Company of Oliver, Georiga and operated over 2,000 acres of Mississippi Delta plantation land in Sunflower, Humphries and Sharkey counties. Dantzler was director and president of People’s Bank of Biloxi from 1914 to 1943 and served as a trustee of Emory University from 1918 to 1943.

Due to the Great Depression, all manufacturing operations were suspended in 1938. But with the advent of World War II, the company recovered and supplied a great amount of lumber to the government from 1941 to 1944. After 1949, all logging and manufacturing operations ceased, and the company thereafter acted only as tree farmers, selling timber on a selective basis in the form of saw logs, piling, poles, pulpwood, and other products. The family sold the company to International Paper Company in 1966.

Scope and Content

The papers date from 1850 to 1954 and provide documentation for one of the largest lumber manufacturers in the South. Early correspondence is sparse, but becomes more substantial by 1906 and illustrates the company’s flexibility in responding to the 1906 hurricane disaster. However, company correspondence from 1911 to 1915 is virtually nonexistent. Most of the correspondence dates from 1928 to 1935.

Present in the correspondence and financial records are a tax protest lodged by the company in 1923 over the valuation of timber used in manufacturing charcoal. Correspondence, financial, legal, and administrative records of the Louisiana-Nicaragua Lumber Company document the acquisition of a 1905 timber concession of 9,000 square miles in Nicaragua and Honduras.

The collection also documents the company’s concern over labor organization in the mills as well as their half-hearted attempts at reforestation and tung oil production.

The unbound financial records stored in collection boxes include receipts, bills, inventories, accounts, orders, tax records and other material which are frequently replicated in the more comprehensive ledgers. These bound volumes include the Dantzler journals, ledgers, cashbooks, order books, tally books, and payroll records for the years 1894 to 1948. Time gaps are apparent in the container list.

Legal papers are comprised primarily of insurance policies and miscellaneous court litigation, principally over land disputes.

Acquisition Information

The University of Mississippi acquired the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company records in June of 1955.

Processing Information

In the late 1950s, John H. Moore served as part-time director of the “University Lumber Archives” and provided some preliminary arrangement to the records. A grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission in 1979 provided funds for the Archives & Special Collections to process, inventory, and make accessible the records of several lumber concerns, including the L.N. Dantzler Lumber Company. Dr. Thomas M. Verich directed the project with the assistance of departmental staff Franklin Walker, Phillip Hall, Elise Winter, and Naomi Levell as well as help from student workers Suzanne Steel, David Robinson, David Sansing, Perry Sansing, Freda Stanford, and Katherine Ditto. Dr. Linda Matthews of Emory University, Dr. Ellen Garrison of Georgia State University, and Dr. Dale Flesher of the University of Mississippi served as consultants.

In 2014, Dr. Leigh McWhite modified the finding aid prior to Digital Initiatives Librarian Susan Ivey encoding the online version.
