Historical Note

The H. Weston Lumber Company grew out of a sawmill operation purchased by Henry Weston, Henry Carre and W. W. Carre in 1856, based in Logtown and operating along the Pearl River basin. Weston bought out his partners in 1874, and began to invest in timber lands. The H. Weston Lumber Company was officially incorporated in 1889. The company was active especially in the later decades of the nineteenth century and in the early decades of the twentieth century. Most of the Weston's lumber produced seems to have been sold to buyers in South America. Subsidiary companies like the Weston Sand and Gravel Company and the Riviera Land and Improvement Company were founded in the 1920's. Their establishment was an attempt by the company to diversify operations as company timber holdings became depleted. In the 1920's and 1930's the H. Weston Lumber Company also pioneered in the reforestation of cutover lands.

Other subsidiary companies, the Louisiana-Mexican Timber and Investment Company and the J. H. Weston Timber Company were formed to exploit the company's timber holdings in Mexico, and in Oregon and in British Columbia. The Westons owned, as well, an interest in the Union Lumber Company, a firm based in New Orleans which also owned timber lands in Oregon and the Northwest. Records of the subsidiary companies and a few records of the Union Lumber Company are present in the papers of the H. Weston Lumber Company.

Throughout its history the H. Weston Lumber Company was a family operation, headed first by Henry Weston, later by his son Horatio S. Weston, and then by H. S. Weston's son Harold B. Weston. The fortunes of the family were closely connected with the company's financial condition, especially during the hard times of the 1930's, and during and after World War II. Many of the so-called personal or family papers in the collection are concerned with business conditions. By the late 1940's the company's operations virtually had ceased. In the early 1950's the company holdings were sold to the International Paper Company.

Scope and Contents Note

Collection contains letterbooks, correspondence, account and time books, various financial records, various legal and administrative records, deeds, and contracts related to the business of the H. Weston Lumber Company. Items were created 1841-1956.

The papers of the H. Weston Lumber Company cover the later period of the company's operations, and document its decline despite attempts at diversification. There are only a few family letters and scattered financial papers and deeds from before 1900. Evidently a fire in 1913 destroyed most earlier company records. From 1912 on, the company' financial records appear to be quite complete. The boxed financial records include incoming invoices, receipts, monthly statements and trial balances, and miscellaneous financial papers. The bound volumes encompass the primary series of financial records. Journals from 1912 to 1951 are present, although there appears to have been a change in bookkeeping methods sometime around 1933. Ledgers date from 1911 to 1930. In 1919 a system of looseleaf ledgers was adopted, and the dates of later volumes occasionally overlap. Cash books from 1919 to 1933 are present. The greatest gap in the financial records is in the outgoing invoices.

There are no minute books for the H. Weston Lumber Company itself. They do exist for the main subsidiary companies. Unbound minutes for the Lumber Company are not complete. Records kept in the minutes of all the companies are uninformative concerning company policies. These minutes detail elections of officers and resolutions enabling the sale of lands.

Outgoing correspondence, especially in the letterbooks, is fairly complete from the early 1920's on. Incoming correspondence is sparse until the late 1920's. Incoming correspondence for the B series of letterbooks, concerning the company's overseas trade, is completely lacking. After the letterbooks end, carbons of outgoing letters are interfiled in the boxed correspondence.

Some separate series of correspondence are of special interest. The personal letters of Horatio S. Weston in the A series of letterbooks are often business-related, and reflect his interest in state and local politics as they affect business conditions. Weston's occasional com ments in his letters are virtually the only references to labor relations in the company's papers. Letters he received during his tenure as the president of the Mississippi State Development Board are boxed separately. His responses are in the A series of letterbooks. H. S. Weston also attempted to expand the company's markets in the late 1920's by commis- sioning research on newsprint paper manufactured from southern pulpwood. The boxed correspondence and the A series of letterbooks contain detailed letters between Weston and representatives of the Arthur D. Little Company about this project. Of note for their sparsity are records documenting black participation in the business, labor in particular.

Another series of correspondence kept as a separate series is the forestry correspondence of J. Roland Weston. This series includes both incoming and outgoing letters, and concerns his activities as professional forester and a member of the Society of American Foresters. Several letters include his reminiscences about the early reforestation activities of the H. Weston Lumber Company.

Records of the Weston subsidiary companies are often included in the bound volumes of financial records along with those of the parent company. Correspondence and other unbound items are filed in separate series for each subsidiary company. Carbons are interfiled, except for early letters to the agents of the Louisiana-Mexican Timber and Invest- ment Company, which are usually in the A series of letterbooks. Letters from company agents in Mexico and the Northwest frequently describe conditions in these areas.

The company's legal records include land and timber deeds, con- tracts, and administrative, tax and insurance records. Information about litigation involving Weston companies is quite scattered. Personnel records include time books and time sheets, as well as the journals (which include payroll records) and ledgers. Tally books and sawmill records record the work activities of the employees, though there are gaps in these records. A fairly complete set of timber estimates for different years, plat maps, and land records exist, which could be used to trace the depletion of timber and alternative uses of the land. A number of blueprints of logging and dredging equipment are also present. A few Weston family papers, including a family history and financial papers, complete the collection. Unfortunately, the manuscript history of the company by Henry Weston cited by Hickman is missing from the collection. There is a history of the company to 1865 based on the early family letters, possibly written by J. Roland Weston.
