Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of approximately 425 incoming and outgoing letters and invoices documents the business activities of the Page Seed Company, founded in 1896 by Erford Lydell Page and Cornelia Page in Greene, Chenango County, New York. Letterheads on outgoing letters (1901-1946) and outgoing invoices (1911-1958) trace the company's changes in emphasis over time, from "growers of seeds, bulbs and plants (1901-1913) to "seedsmen" (from 1912), "growers and importers of seeds" (1913-1914), "growers and importers of garden, field and flower seeds" (1920-1923), "growers and importers of seeds" (1930), or "growers and wholesalers of seeds" (1956-1958). Incoming letters (1896-1957) and invoices (1897-1942) chiefly quote seed availability and prices, or shipments send or received, or involve order or contract disputes.
