Oscar High Business Papers and Memorabilia
Scope and Contents
The collection contains business receipts, letters, and advertisements from three businesses operated by Oscar High of Whiteville, North Carolina, spanning more than forty years from 1916 thru the 1960s, with special emphasis on the period between 1920's through 1950's. The personal letters of Mr. High's Waccamaw cottage rental business are of particular interest, as this covers both the Great Depression and World War II years and demonstrates his highly regarded business ethics and eagerness to aid his clients. Also of interest are the numerous business advertisements from southeastern United States referencing pecan production, and both the furniture and building industries.
