This collection mostly features corporate records, financial and otherwise, but also includes media, Southern Pine Association bulletins, and other miscellaneous correspondence. The still-bound ledgers from the 1920s are an interesting feature because they show the new company’s humble beginnings and a look into binding and record keeping from the past.
There are 28 folders and several ledgers arranged across five series in two boxes.
