Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of correspondence, business records, and maps of the Kerckhoff-Cuzner Mill & Lumber Company of Los Angeles, California, with the bulk dating from 1883-1908. The majority deals with the purchase of Boschke’s Island in the Port of Los Angeles harbor.
The Kerckhoff-Cuzner Mill & Lumber Company was originally the Los Angeles, California, branch of the J. G. Jackson Lumber Company. James Cuzner was managing it when in 1879 William George Kerckhoff (1856-1929) approached him about purchasing a partner stake in the company. Cuzner and Kerckhoff each purchased a quarter stake in the company and it then became the Jackson, Kerckhoff & Cuzner Lumber Company. In 1883 the company incorporated, and Kerckhoff became president and Cuzner became vice-president of the renamed Kerckhoff-Cuzner Mill & Lumber Company.
