Arrangement and Description

The method of organizing and describing the Jewett Family Papers follows the system practiced by the United States National Archives in arranging government archives. Respect for provenance, or original order, determines the arrangement wherever practical so that methods of operation and interrelationships will be brought out as well as the importance of individual items.Therefore:1. All correspondence is arranged chronologically.2. All letters are arranged alphabetically within each year, under the name of the person or company from whom the letter was received or to whom it was sent.3. Note the following special cases.a. Federal officers filed under the name of the town where located.b. State officers filed under the name of the state.c. County officers filed under the name of the appropriate town or city.Wherever there are deviations from the system outlined above the same will be noted in the appropriate place in this register.

Scope and Content

The Jewett Collection consists primarily of the business collection of George Frederick Jewett (1896-1956) in the capacity of Vice President (1935-1946) and President (1946-1949) of Potlatch Forests, Incorporated, and as a prominent member of the National Lumber Manufacturer's Association, leader of the Association's Committee on Forest Conservation, President of the North Idaho Conservation Association, and member of other conservation associations. In all there are twenty-five file boxes of this material and in addition there are eleven file boxes of the financial records of the companies, associations and institutions with which Mr. Jewett was associated. There are further fourteen file boxes of business letters pertaining to the Edward Rutledge Timber Company, of which company Mr. Jewett became General Manager in 1928, and which was one of the three companies to be merged into Potlatch Forests, Inc., in 1931. The correspondence of those companies associated with the Rutledge Company are filed in four boxes, all the miscellaneous papers relevant to this section being filed together in one box. Stored in five file boxes are all the financial and legal records of the Edward Rutledge Timber Company and its associated companies, large bound volumes precluded from being placed in file boxes by virtue of their size.

The personal papers of the Jewett Family date from (1853-1950) and despite sporadic gaps due to the loss of such material in recent floods they give a valuable insight into the lives of George Frederick Jewett, his father James Richard Jewett (1862-1943) and, to a lesser degree, his grandfather George Washington Jewett (d.1879). This material is contained in two file boxes. Also in two file boxes are the personal business papers of the collection. These include the correspondence between G.F. Jewett and the many companies with which he was associated on a personal basis; with his banks, insurance brokers, and attorneys; and his dealings in real estate. It also includes correspondence with the Republican Party, in which Mr. Jewett took a keen and active interest, with the English Speaking Union, the United Services Organization and with many other philanthropic institutions to which both he and Mrs. Jewett gave generously both of their time and money.

The collection of Jewett Memorabilia occupies one file box, and there is one file box of miscellaneous material.

The contents of each section are outlined in full detail in the following Description of Series. In addition to the subject analysis by section a name index of the entire collection enables the researcher to locate without difficulty all the correspondence of a given individual.

The Jewett Collection is a valuable source for the study of American forest history in all its aspects, and in particular from those of actual lumbering, conservation and business.

Detailed Description of the Collection

Series I. The Edward Rutledge Timber Company Papers 1901-1954
The Rutledge Company was incorporated in 1902. In 1904 its officers were:
Edward Rutledge - President
Frederick Weyerhaeuser - Vice President
Charles Weyerhaeuser - Secretary and Treasurer
Frank J. Davies - General Manager (elected at annual meeting , October 6, 1904)
In 1911 Edward Rutledge died and in 1916 F.J. Davies retired, dying the following year. His successor was Huntington Taylor. By February 1918 the list of officers read:
Rudolph M. Weyerhaeuser - President
Huntington Taylor - Vice President & General Manager
William J. Merrigan - Secretary
Charles A. Weyerhaeuser - Treasurer
George Frederick Jewett succeeded Huntington Taylor as General Manager in 1928 and remained in this position until the company was merged, along with the Clearwater Timber Company and the Potlatch Lumber Company in 1931.
During the early years of Davies' management the Rutledge Timber Company was engaged only in the acquisition of timber lands. The majority of the correspondence up until 1906 is concerned with the transactions and bargaining involved in this process. After 1906 comparatively little valuable timber land was left on the market and the long complex process of clearing title to land predominates over other matters in the correspondence. Britton and Grey, attorneys and the Washington Counsel for the Northern Pacific Railway; Stiles Burr, attorney at St. Paul and the land offices of the Northern Pacific Railway are the most frequent correspondents.
In 1910 Rutledge sold its quarter interest in state land timber to the Blackwell Lumber Company. This move reflects the desire of Mr. Rutledge to get some return from his investment before he died. It was his desire to sell all the lands of the company and take his profit that way, rather than by going into production. (See correspondence of Ainsworth, Rutledge, C.A. Weyerhaeuser and Davies.) However no buyer could be found who would, or could, pay the price requested and the idea seems to have been dropped as Mr. Rutledge's health failed. From the correspondence it can be seen that Davies was antagonistic towards the idea of selling, undoubtedly because he felt that much of the work he had done would have been for naught.
The Edward Rutledge Timber Company Collection is a business collection consisting of 24 file boxes and some 25 bound volumes of account books, ledgers and financial records. The material was received for processing shortly after it had been damaged by flood water in December 1964 at Lewiston, Idaho. An appreciable part of the collection, apparently including the minute books, was destroyed at this time. This accounts for the otherwise inexplicable gaps in the material.
Correspondence between 1914 and 1916 is comparatively limited, being still primarily concerned with clearing up legal matters. Sometime in either 1914 or 1915 it was decided to go into production. In previous years, for example in 1910, the only timbering done was by contract of burned-over areas. Production began for the saw mill at Coeur d'Alene in April, 1916 and in July of that year it began for the planning mill. Huntington Taylor was apparently Davies' associate in the construction of the mill and the associated logging facilities, although there are actually no concrete records to reveal the exact nature of this arrangement.
Beginning in 1917 there is a tremendous increase in the volume of correspondence both to and from the company. Labor difficulties figure prominently in the correspondence, the I.W.W. responsible for causing considerable problems, and there is the beginning of the labor organization aiming to cut the ten hour day to eight hours with the same pay. In the correspondence there is discussion over the purchase of timber; insurance on lumber; and in particular there is much mention made of new bills in the Legislature, namely the Repeal of the Poll Tax Law, the Workmen's Compensation Bill and the Eminent Domain Bill. There are a large number of letters from small companies requesting advice and a notably large number of applications for work; clearly the effects of war were being felt.
The correspondence of 1918 is basically very similar to that of the previous year. There are very few offers to sell either land or stumpage. The volume of correspondence from the Associated Employers Reciprocal is considerable and is concerned with the payment of compensation to workmen involved in accidents. There is further mention of the I.W.W. and a special report on the situation is given. The International Association of Chiefs of Police corresponded with the company suggesting that there be the establishment of a cooperative police and secret service department to be maintained by the lumber manufacturers of the west to combat the disruptive influence of the I.W.W. A lengthy communication from the War Department at Portland enumerates logging camp regulations, pay regulations and a long list of rigid regulations covering every aspect of the industry which the company, by implication, regarded as something of an invasion of their rights.
Correspondence between the Employers Association of the Inland Empire, the Loggers Club and the Timber Products Manufacturers is prominent during 1918. It covers a wide variety of subjects; labor and wage schedules; the problems of preventing the draft of essential employees; camp conditions etc. Methods of combating the I.W.W. are also suggested. The purpose of these associations seems, therefore, to be to ensure that all workers labor under those conditions most satisfactory to themselves and to their employers.
During the year 1919 the same trends are visible in the lumber industry. Letters and bulletins from the Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen are prominent; the North Idaho Forestry Association is active in keeping its members informed regarding all legislation pertinent to the industry, and the Western Forestry and Conservation Association correspondence covers every aspect of lumbering from new legislation to modern methods of conservation.
During 1920 and 1921 the volume of letters is very much diminished. It would appear that by far the greater part of the correspondence for these years has been lost. What remains is merely routine correspondence with nothing of any particular interest to be noted.
From 1901 up to 1916 the correspondence of this company is of value because of the light it throws on the development of the company and its methods of purchasing and acquiring new timber lands and the litigation involved in this process. After 1916, and the notable increase in the volume of correspondence, the papers become of even greater value and interest to the forest historian for here is to be found much material concerning the development of the I.W.W. as a subversive force in this industry; the growth of the Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen to counteract the former group; the growing participation by lumber manufacturers in legislation pertinent to forestry; the more active associations of timber manufacturers designed to make more efficient every aspect of their industry; and the increasingly greater awareness of the need for a more efficient and well organized industry in general.
In addition to this material there are those more routine letters, requests for advice and for employment, camp reports, orders for equipment, covering a miscellany of matters which taken as a whole do a great deal to give one a clear picture of the forest industry of the first two decades of this century.
In addition to the thirteen file boxes of correspondence dating from 1901 to 1920 there is one further file box which holds correspondence and other material dating from 1920 up to 1954. Evidence of flood damage to these papers is apparent, and between these dates there are frequent large gaps in the correspondence. Primarily the correspondence is of a financial nature and is particularly concerned with the dissolution of the Company.
The General Correspondence includes routine correspondence; much of this is concerned with financial problems, in particular tax problems; there is also the cancellation of a hospital contract, but very little else of any great importance. There is, however, a greater volume of correspondence directly related to the dissolution of the Company; this includes letters to the Secretary of State at Olympia, Washington, wherein the technicalities of the dissolution are discussed, and there are various letters from individuals within the company concerned with the actual liquidation proposals.
Correspondence with the First National Bank of Seattle is anent the trust agreement between Elizabeth W. Titcomb as settler, and the bank as trustee, the resignation of the bank from this position in November, 1942, and the consequent appointment of successor trustees.
The folder headings on all other folders should make their contents quite clear.

a) St. Joe Boom Company Papers
The St. Joe Improvement Company's franchise expired on November 9, 1916 and at this time it was sold to the Boom Company.
James Harte was Secretary-Treasurer from 1903 and Andrew Bloom was Manager from 1904. F.J. Davies was elected president of the Boom Company and Improvement Company in March of 1907.
As from June 30, 1918 the following positions were held in the St. Joe Boom Company:
Huntington Taylor - President
W.S. Rosenberry - Vice President
A.V. Chamberlain - Secretary-Treasurer
The Board of Directors was as follows:
Huntington Taylor
W.S. Rosenberry
A.V. Chamberlain
William J. Merrigan
E.W. Eller
Included with the papers of the legal entity, the Edward Rutledge Timber Company, are the records and documents of some of its subsidiary and parallel corporations, that is, corporations in the same field with essentially the same group of men as executive officers. The St. Joe Boom Company is the best example of this relationship - a relationship which is best explained in Timber and Men, "The Rutledge Company owned shares in the St. Joe Improvement Company, which drove logs on the river of its name, and the St. Joe Boom Company, which sorted logs before they were towed across the lake by the Red Collar Line of steamers. The Rutledge Company also bought the latter in the late twenties."
In addition to the correspondence for this company there are records of a financial nature. Where possible these have been integrated with the correspondence but it has been necessary to exclude some of these from the file boxes by virtue of their size (bound volumes).

b) Coeur D'Alene Timber Protective Association
This file is a separate entity within the Rutledge Collection and includes material for the years 1910, 1914 and 1915 with a very limited volume of correspondence for the years 1931 and 1932. During the years 1910, 1914 and 1915 the correspondence is very similar in nature; letters to and from other timber protective associations predominate and of these, letters to the Western Forestry and Conservation Association are prominent. These letters are concerned, in the main, with methods of fire fighting and the prevention of forest fires; pamphlets, fire-warning stickers, circulars etc. all designed to make the general public more conscious of the tremendous danger of forest fires and the wastage caused thereby. There are also the routine notices of fire-fighting conferences and of meetings of the Association; routine letters to members of the Association who had failed to pay their assessment; and many letters discussing the damage caused by particular fires.
1910
The summer of this year was particularly dry and consequently a great deal of damage was done by fire, especially in the locality between the St. Joe and the Coeur d'Alene rivers. The town of St. Maries was only just saved from burning. A co-operative agreement was made between the Association and the United States Forestry Bureau thereby ensuring that parts of the district were cared for and patrolled by government rangers. There is correspondence with Thomas Cooper, Land Commissioner for the Northern Pacific Railway Company at St. Paul, Minnesota, requesting a $10,000 contribution to help defray the heavy Association expenses for the year, however, only $5,000 was forthcoming.
1914
This was another bad year for forest fires and much of the correspondence is concerned with the discussion of these. Further new methods of fire fighting are suggested. There are the usual routine letters to members who have failed to pay their dues and assessments.
1915
In addition to the large volume of routine correspondence which exists for this year the remainder of the material is letters to and from other timber protective associations in which there is much discussion of the Weeks and Fallon Fire Law.
1931-1932
Correspondence for these two years is concerned entirely with notices of meetings of the Association members and of its Board of Directors, and the minutes of these meetings.
A communication of April 1932, makes reference to a special meeting of the Association to consider a resolution for the dissolution of the Association. The outcome of this is not known since the correspondence terminates completely at this juncture.
In addition to this correspondence there is the Minutes of the Coeur d'Alene Timber Protective Association. February 1919-June 1939
c) Navigation And Transportation Companies
Material pertaining to the four navigation and transportation companies is located in a single file box and is a separate entity from the main Rutledge Collection though connected with it. There is no correspondence but simply tariffs and schedules of the companies and for this reason it has been kept separately. A complete list of this material follows:

e) Financial Records (Bound Volumes)
Wherever possible all the financial records of a company have been incorporated with the other material pertaining to that company. In some cases the size of these records (bound volumes) has precluded this procedure. In all there are some 20 bound volumes. These records are the financial proceedings of the Bonners Ferry Lumber Company, the Red Collar Line, Incorporated, the St. Joe Boom Company and the Edward Rutledge Timber Company.

Series II. Business Papers Of George Frederick Jewett
The business papers of George Frederick Jewett, Manager and Vice-President of the Edward Rutledge Timber Company from 1928, Vice-President of Potlatch Forests, Incorporated, from 1935 to 1946 and President of the same company from 1946 until 1949, consist primarily of the correspondence directly concerned with these companies. The Rutledge Company was one of the three companies (the others being the Clearwater Timber Company and the Potlatch Lumber Company) to be merged in 1931 to Potlatch Forests, Inc.; the original idea of consolidation having been formulated by Mr. Jewett as early as 1927 in order to help the three companies overcome the economic depression which so seriously threatened the lumber industry of the west, by a merger which would enable the companies to combine their resources and to evolve a more economic division of labor. Following this merger Mr. Jewett remained as manager of the Rutledge Unit of P.F.I. and throughout that decade was active-in establishing P.F.I. as an efficient and prosperous business concern and as a company which established a reputation of being forward looking and a pioneer company in the propagation of new methods in both forestry and in the industry itself. This progress can be traced in the business correspondence between 1928 and 1950.
In addition to the correspondence concerned solely with P.F.I. there is a considerable volume of correspondence within these files between G.F. Jewett and the many conservation associations in which he played an active role. As President of the North Idaho Conservation Association, member of the Western Forestry and Conservation Association and member of the National Lumber Manufacturers Association, and leader of that Association's committee on forest conservation, it is clear to see that at all times Mr. Jewett was a strong advocate of the adoption of new and efficient methods of conservation and forest management in general. As an active supporter of private forestry, perhaps the issue on which Mr. Jewett felt most strongly of all, his correspondence with United States Chamber of Commerce, Department of Agriculture and with Congressmen and Senators is most illuminating. Further letters to the Idaho State Chamber of Commerce, dealing for the most part with controversial forest taxation, with the Inland Empire Industrial Research, Inc., and with the Forest Industries Committee, all endorse the intense interest displayed by Mr. Jewett in forestry not only from a purely business point of view but as a far sighted advocate of new methods and further scientific developments in this field. His contribution to the American lumber industry is immense, both as an astute business man and as an advocate of efficient and modern innovations in forestry practice.

Series IV. Jewett Personal Papers
These papers consist of the private correspondence of George Frederick Jewett, his father James Richard Jewett, and his grandfather George Washington Jewett. The letters date from 1853 to 1950.
The earlier correspondence, 1853 to 1880, contains primarily the letters of George Washington Jewett, a sea captain, and his wife Annie M. Jewett to the various members of their family. Captain Jewett died in Honolulu in 1879 while on a voyage and there is a considerable volume of letters concerning his death. During this period, and up to the end of the century, there are many letters from friends and relations, many of them recounting day to day occurrences which taken as a whole clearly portray the life of the Jewett family in the second half of the nineteenth century.
After 1890 the correspondence provides extensive information about the life of James Richard Jewett. There are numerous letters to Mr. Jewett, appointed Professor of Arabic at Harvard University in 1911, from his academic colleagues at Yale, Harvard and at the University of Chicago where Professor Jewett had also held tenure. Also included are letters from the American University at Cairo and at Beirut and from the American Oriental Society, institutions with which Jewett was closely associated and in which he took an active interest.
During the second decade of the twentieth century there are many letters from George Frederick Jewett (Fritz) to his parents describing his experiences at Phillips Academy Andover, and subsequently in the United States Navy. Correspondence is limited throughout the period 1920-1929 but during the thirties is particularly full. It includes letters to and from the immediate Jewett family members, and from other relations and friends. Correspondence with Mr. and Mrs. William Bancroft Hill is extensive, as it is with Mr. and Mrs. William Grant Cooper. In 1935 there are letters concerning the kidnapping of George Hunt Weyerhaeuser.
The volume of letters decreases rapidly in the 1940's and the little that does exist is primarily letters from G.F. Jewett and his wife to their two children and the replies of the latter to their parents. Correspondence terminates in 1950.
These letters are fundamentally of family interest; the information to be found in them would be of secondary value to a study of the business interests of George Frederick Jewett, although in some instances the letters provide helpful clues to matters discussed in other sources. As research material for family and social history these letters do provide a more than adequate picture of the daily lives of George Frederick and James Richard Jewett and their wives during those years in which correspondence is fairly complete. Typical subjects discussed include social activities, trips and medical problems and there is a considerable body of material disclosing the effects of the depression on the family. Combined with his personal business correspondence and with his purely business correspondence these personal letters do much to help form an accurate biographical picture of George Frederick Jewett.

Series V. Jewett Family Personal Business Papers
This section comprises the correspondence between G.F. Jewett and the many companies with which he was associated on a personal basis. In some cases Mr. Jewett held executive positions in these companies but, unlike his purely business correspondence, these letters are concerned with his personal investments in the companies. In most cases correspondence is entirely unconnected with his official duties; it covers a wide variety of subjects, his letters to his bank, his insurance brokers and attorneys; and his dealings in real estate; and there are many letters to and from department stores.
The volume of correspondence with philanthropic institutions is considerable. Both Mr. and Mrs. Jewett took an active interest in the Republican Party, in the English Speaking Union, in the United States Services Organization, in the Y.W.C.A. and in local Spokane charitable institutions.
Their interest and support of the Cathedral of St. John at Spokane is another example of the way in which Mr. and Mrs. Jewett gave generously both of their time and money.
