C) Correspondence with Key Business Associates, 1914-1932

Scope and Content Note

Starting in 1914, Sherman retained both incoming letters and copies of letters sent for a number of key business associates. These include T. J. Brown, manager of Tejon Ranch; Harry Chandler, manager and later publisher of the Los Angeles Times; Robert C. Gillis, a real estate developer and close business confidant; Arnold Haskell, Sherman's personal assistant; and S. F. Mitchell, who managed Sherman's Arizona business interest, including the operation of the Phoenix Railway Company.
The letters in this series cover a broad range of business and social activities. The Harry Chandler correspondence files include an almost daily correspondence between the two men touching on the broad range of business projects, including Tejon Ranch, the Colorado River Land Company. and the sale of San Fernando Valley property jointly owned by the two men. The correspondence also includes references to social affairs. Many of Chandler's letters forward third party materials for Sherman's reference. The files for Arnold Haskell document every aspect of Sherman's business operations. Haskell was Sherman's most trusted employee and associate, who managed much of Sherman's business concerns in the years before Sherman's death.

D) Correspondence with Family

Scope and Content Note

The first portion of this series (boxes 80-83) are photocopies from the Letter Books to family members, filed by correspondence. Most files are annotated with an explanation of the correspondent's relationship to Sherman. The balance of the series includes letter received from family members. The most frequent writer was Hazeltine Sherman Keever, Sherman's daughter. Most of the letters are undated and are currently unarranged.
NB: Until about 1883, Sherman maintained family letters with other correspondence. As a consequence, these letters can be found in the Letters Received series. After about 1883, Sherman maintained family letters separately from other correspondence.

XII) Fiscal Records

 

A) Income Tax Records, 1916-1934

Scope and Content Note

This series includes tax forms, correspondence, and appraisals relating to Sherman's Federal taxes. The audit files include descriptions of Sherman's business transactions, and sometime providing extensive explanations of his business operations. A major subject is the value of land Sherman purchased before 1913. The Internal Revenue Service audits accused Sherman of overstating the value of his land in 1913 (the year the 16th Amendment to the Constitution was passed, authorizing income tax) to reduce his taxes. The series includes appraisal reports Sherman commissioned of his San Fernando Valley holdings and Clark and Sherman Land Company holdings to contest these ruling.

D) Cancelled Checks, 1879-1932

Scope and Content Note

This series includes cancelled checks from a variety of banks in which Sherman maintained accounts. In most cases, the cancelled checks were glued back into the original checkbook, which include stubs on which the payee and reason for the check were record. For the period prior to 1913, when Sherman did not keep detailed accounting records, these checks can be the best source of information about financial transactions.
