Abstract:
Business records covering not only lumbering and logging operations in northwestern Wisconsin by the Owen Lumber Company, but also related enterprises in lumber, real estate, railroads, and cotton in the Pacific Northwest, South Dakota, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Subsidiary or related companies included the Owen-Oregon Lumber Company, California & Oregon Lumber Company, Del Norte Company, Three States Lumber Company, Gilbert Lumber Company, Owen Box and Crating Company, Pierre Lumber Company, Owen Falls Mining Company, the Blytheville, Burdette and Mississippi River Railroad Company, and the Drummond and Southwestern Railway Company. Letterpress copy books, 1875-1951, and incoming correspondence, 1920-1951, relate primarily to the Wisconsin operations of the Rust Owen Lumber Company, the John S. Owen Lumber Company, and some of the related Owen firms. The correspondence files are supplemented by series of incorporation papers, minutes, ledgers, journals, cash books, payroll balances, operating statements, stock books, land inventories, and contracts. Many of the series of minutes and financial records are fragmentary, particularly for the companies operating outside of Wisconsin.
Language: English

Biography/History

The John S. Owen Lumber Company papers include the records of many related companies, which were controlled by John S. Owen or by his relatives and associates. The interests of these companies included logging and lumbering enterprises through Wisconsin and South Dakota to Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, California, & Oregon. They survived wars, panics, and depressions from 1893 and 1907 through 1939. These interests also included real estate companies, railroads, overseas shipping, and a cotton plantation with gin and cotton warehouses.

John S. Owen, born May 1, 1849 at Clarkston, Michigan, was the son of State Senator John G. Owen. He married Cora Mathilda Rust in 1872, and in 1873 he left his father's wholesale grocery and lumber business to engage in his own business of lumbering and logging in Wisconsin.

In 1882, with Aloney J. Rust and Ralph E. Rust, he organized the Rust Owen Lumber Company, which operated until 1938, and which was not dissolved until 1942. In 1893, he organized the John S. Owen lumber Company, of which he was president until his death on June 21, 1931.

Though he retained the office of president of John S. Owen Lumber Company until his death, Owen previously turned over to his son, A. R. Owen, much of the managerial responsibility of the business. Records show too, that the other sons, John G., Ralph W., and Frank G., were actively associated in the financial affairs and operations of the various companies. Rust, Gilchrist, and Drummond family names appear among the major stockholders and company officers.

Scope and Content Note

The records are organized in six groups: Unbound Correspondence, Miscellaneous Unbound Papers, Letterbooks, Indexes to Correspondence, Financial Records, and Minute Books.

Much of the correspondence-received and other records that must have once existed were not with the collection when it was received by the State Historical Society. In the Rust Owen subject file for 1939 is a letter from A. R. Owen, dated January 13, which discusses arrangements to dispose of papers for which there would be no future use. Correspondence in the collection consists of unbound correspondence and two hundred and eighty-three letterpress copy books.

Three files of the John S. Owen Lumber Company are indexed in volumes 284 through 288 of this collection. File “A” of this group consists of executive correspondence; file “G” is general correspondence; and file “T” is correspondence relating to Three States Lumber Company. Other correspondence includes that of Rust Owen Lumber Company, Owen-Oregon Lumber Company, California & Oregon Lumber Company, Del Norte Company Ltd., Three States Lumber Company, Gilbert Lumber Company, and Owen Box and Crating Company.

In the contents list below, the term “Corporation Records” is used to describe such miscellaneous papers as articles of incorporation, or those affecting financial arrangements, policy, administration, and litigation, with a few closely related letters. The term does not include records of ordinary operations of the various related companies. Other descriptive terms used in the container list are those commonly employed for business records.

Income tax litigation records, particularly in the files of Three States Trust, show the changes in accounting procedures necessitated by the enactment of the Federal Income Tax Laws after 1913.
