Custodial history

Records were left in A.E. Wick's garage, a building which was later occupied by Beaver Lumber Company. When this company went out of business, these records were discovered in the attic. Lorne Fleece, of Cochrane, was brought in to take care of them, and they were acquired from him by the Archives of Ontario in November of 1981.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of business records of the A.E. Wicks Ltd. lumber company. It includes a large number of subject files, which contain correspondence, memos, invoices, statements, orders, and advertising. Correspondence in subject files is with suppliers, forest products customers, camp foremen, government officials and departments, and local railways, particularly the Temiskang and Northern Ontario Railway, a carrier frequently used by the company. The files relate to: acquisition and distribution of supplies to camps, management of camps and sawmills, liaison with Federal and Provincial Governments under whose jurisdiction various aspects of the operation fell, cutting and scaling, setting up camps and contracting with foremen, insurance, financial accounting, and other topics. The fonds also includes contracts, accounts, deposit and bank books, shipment and stock ledgers, payroll records, insurance register, and journals containing accounts and daily mill reports.
