Scope and Content

From the Collection: The collection contains financial ledgers and invoices of the Smith Mercantile Company. The general ledger, 1911-1942, records the names and accounts of Smith's customers. Invoices, mostly from the Charles Ilfeld Company indicate the groceries and supplies carried in the store. Most of the ledgers cover the earliest and latest years of operation, 1901-1904 and 1946-1948.

An addition to the collection processed in April 2018 includes a number of binders, books, notebooks and ledgers detailing a variety of accounts, records and commodities related to Smith Mercantile. Records in the addition span the years from 1891 to the late 1950s. Some financial records of George H. Smith, Jr. predate the opening of Smith Mercantile in 1901.

This collection is also known as the Santa Rosa Mercantile Company Records.
