Scope and Content

This material spans the period from 1900 - 1918 with the bulk from 1914 through 1917. There are also a number of undated items. The collection consists of letters, a Protocol, bills, extracts from a diary, copies of contracts, powers of attorney and other legal papers, misc. financial papers and notes, various lists, clips and printed material, brochures, telegrams and cables, form letters, postcards, memos, notes and drafts, sketches, autographs, calling cards and maps.
The subject matter pertains almost exclusively to business in Russia, China, Nicaragua, Mexico and the United States.
