Arrangement and Description

Since there are so few records of the East Standard Mining Company no series designations were made. The physical order of the material, however, follows that of the larger Day Mines groups.Records of the Board of Directors and the Stockholders include minutes and notices of meetings. Capital Stock Records include a stock ledger and cancelled stock certificates. The Financial Records consist of state and federal corporation tax returns for the year 1948 and a check register, paid checks and other material related to the liquidating dividend paid to shareholders when the company was dissolved.

Scope and Content

The records of the East Standard Mining Company span the years 1911 to 1953, with the bulk of the material covering the years 1938 to 1948. Included are minutes of meetings, financial records, a stock ledger, cancelled stock certificates, a financial ledger, records related to the liquidation dividend, and tax returns.

Related materials can be found in the personal papers of Henry Day.


Administrative/Biographical History

Due to the lack of records for East Standard it is impossible to write a comprehensive history of the company. We do know that the company was incorporated around 1911 and stocks were issued that year on August 17. Joseph Matt is listed as the president of the company and he and his brother, Andrew, were major stockholders. By 1924 however, August Paulsen was the major holder with 663,050 shares. Paulsen's holdings were later transferred to his son Clarence as executor of his father's estate. By 1948, Day Mines Inc., had attained a majority of East Standard stock. When East Standard was dissolved at a special meeting held in 1948, its only assets were four patented lode mining claims in the Lelande Mining District of Shoshone County, Idaho. Bank statements indicate that the property continued to remain active until at least 1953. No records exist after this date.
