Arrangement and Description

The records of the Potlatch Lumber Company were stored in the basement of the office building in Potlatch and had suffered various shifts over time. When they were collected by University of Idaho library staff and removed to the library there was no discernible arrangement to the material; therefore, the series and sub-series designations were created during processing.The first three series consist of Potlatch Mill records; correspondence arranged alphabetically by year; alphabetical files divided into employee-related and company-related materials, and contracts, agreements, specifications, and blueprints.The fourth series contains financial reports. The annual reports for 1909-1930 include the Elk River Mill and balance sheets for the Potlatch State Bank and Potlatch Mercantile Co. The monthly financial statements from 1905 to 1915 include Potlatch, Palouse, and Elk River Mills, Palouse Flour Mill, Potlatch Mercantile Co., and Potlatch State Bank.Material identified as relating to the Land Department or the Logging and Woods Departments form two series; the affiliated companies, e.g., the Mercantile Company, Company Ranch, Townsite Company, etc., were all placed in one series. This is followed by material from Weyerhaeuser Sales Company, part of the parent company, and loose material related to timber and forestry organizations.The financial ledgers and journals are arranged by department or organization. The forestry maps and building blueprints were collected into one oversize series. The photographs have been separated into three groups: the illustration printing blocks, the mounted photographs, and the oversize photographs.Where ledgers and journals contained the same information, the journals were removed. Also removed were minor accounting records, such as lath books, invoice record books, order books, transfer binders, and vouchers. In all, the records were reduced by approximately 53.5 c.f.

Scope and Content

The records of the Potlatch Lumber Company, Potlatch, Idaho, span the years 1901 to 1979, with the bulk of the material dated 1906-1950. Prior to receipt by the library, the Potlatch office manager removed all personnel records and other sensitive items. The remainder includes 41 c.f. of correspondence, alphabetical files containing both employee and company related materials, contracts and agreements for work to be done or equipment purchases, specifications and blueprints for plant machinery, annual and monthly financial reports, and property tax lists and receipts. In addition, there are 128 ledgers and journals, 24 maps of timber holdings, 285 blueprints of buildings and 355 photographs.

Due to the inter-relationship of the Potlatch organization there are also some records for the company mills at Palouse, Washington, and Elk River, Idaho, and the Washington, Idaho, and Montana Railway Company, the Potlatch Brick Company, and the Palouse Flour Mill. Since the town of Potlatch was a company town there are also records for the Townsite Company, the Potlatch Mercantile Company, and the company ranch.

As part of the Weyerhaeuser conglomerate the lumber company received annual reports for the Humbird and Standard Lumber Companies, and various circular letters and reports from the Weyerhaeuser Sales Company.

Other records include material from the Columbia/Appledale Land Company, 1910-1912, and the Northland Pine Company, 1901-1905, companies in which William Deary, the first general manager of the Potlatch Lumber Company, had ,an interest.

The University of Idaho Library also has other material relating to Potlatch Forests, Inc., which complements these records: George Frederick Jewett Papers (MG 43); Potlatch Forests, Inc., (Coeur d'Alene & Bonners Ferry operations) (MG 96); Potlatch Forests, Inc., Camp 6, Bovill (MG 52); and the records of the Washington, Idaho, and Montana Railway Company (MG 139).

In addition, the archives of the Laird Norton Company in Seattle, Washington, contains 16 cubic feet of Potlatch-related material from the years 1903-1955.


Administrative/Biographical History

The Potlatch Lumber Company, Potlatch, Idaho, was incorporated in 1903 under the laws of the state of Maine, with Charles Weyerhaeuser named as its first president. For timber the company relied on the holdings of the Northland Pine and the Wisconsin Log and Lumber Companies. Soon it acquired mills and timber of Codd Lumber Company of Colfax, Washington, and Palouse River Lumber Company of Palouse, Washington. The Codd mill did not operate and the Palouse mill served only to cut lumber to build the Potlatch town and plant.

In 1904 the building of the largest white pine mill in the world began. It was steam powered and driven by belts and shafts. W. A. Wilkinson of Minnesota was in charge of the design, plans, and construction. The company believed a company town was a necessary investment and a proper step in labor relations and community improvement. When the mill began operating in the fall of 1906 the company had finished 128 houses, 2 boarding houses, 2 schools, a hotel, 2 churches, a store, bank, post office, and an opera house. Saloons were barred and gambling was not allowed in the bunkhouses. In 1952 the town of Potlatch was incorporated and houses were sold to those who wanted to purchase them; the last property was sold in 1982.

Under the general managership of William Deary the mill began operation on September 11, 1906. Assisting him in the management of the mill were Allison W. Laird, assistant manager, and timber cruiser, William Helmer. According to the Palouse Republic, September 14, 1906, "The first log cut will be white pine and the lumber will be fashioned into a desk for assistant manager A. W. Laird."

In 1910 the company built a mill in Elk River which operated until 1930. They also supported their operations through the creation of other companies. In order to haul logs to the mill and lumber from the mill to an existing railroad at Palouse, the company built a 50 mile long railway, the Washington, Idaho, and Montana, which ran from Palouse to Purdue, Idaho. The Townsite Company and its commercial center, the Potlatch Mercantile Company, as well as Potlatch Brick Company, were located at Potlatch, Idaho. They also operated the Palouse Flour Mill in Palouse, Washington.

In 1930 the Weyerhaeuser conglomerate faced the possibility that, due to heavy taxation of privately owned timber land by the state, all of its North Idaho mills would go bankrupt. So, in 1931, they merged Potlatch Lumber Company, Edward Rutledge Timber Company, and Clearwater Timber Company to form Potlatch Forests, Inc., with headquarters in Lewiston. The mills were modernized, managerial talents pooled, and by the early 1940's the business was making a profit. The Potlatch mill was again modernized in 1962 and a new office building was completed in 1964.

The mill continued to operated until August 14, 1981 when, due to a depressed lumber market, it closed. It was thought that this closure, like several before it, was temporary, but on March 16, 1983, announcement of a permanent closure effective April 1 was announced. Shortly thereafter dismantling of the mill began.
