  • McLeod (John A.) Department Store Records, 1873-1982
    of the McLeod home at 802 Main Street in Hattiesburg In the late 1980s the home was purchased by local attorney John M Deakle and the financial books and other items in the collection were discovered during renovations Recognizing their historic significance Mr Deakle donated the materials to the University of Southern Mississippi Archives in 1988 The covers on several of the financial books are in various stages of deterioration but the contents are generally well preserved and quite legible Box 1 contains five volumes each designed for a particular purpose Volume one is a Combined Record Book which contains a handwritten copy of the McLeod and Kennedy Company s 1899 charter and a copy of the 1904 amendment changing the company s name to the John A McLeod Company Also in this

little insight into operations during the period Volume two is a Trial Balance Book Aug Dec 1915 In accounting the purpose of a trial balance is to ferret out errors in journalization before final entry in a ledger This volume contains information concerning accounts payable and receivable and provides names of customers and suppliers of the McLeod Company Volume three is a Cash Book which details receipts and disbursements from July 1922 to December 1923 Volume four begins a series of eight Day Books a type of journal used to record current transactions However the first two Day Books vols 4 5 have been used for inventory records 1924 1930 All entries therein are dated December 31 suggesting that the company s fiscal year coincided with the calendar year Judging from these records the store carried a wide variety of merchandise including clothing shoes piece goods sewing notions household items luggage health and beauty aids hardware and farm supplies Interestingly pages 272 307 of volume four record sales of cotton produced by tenant farmers on the McLeod farm during 1926 and 1927 These entries include name of producer weight of bale production costs sale price and name

purchase and in some instances the amount of wood purchased plus a note as to whether the patron was a city or country dweller Box 2 contains the remaining five Day Books which are essentially cash books dating from 1923 1932 However pages 6 65 of volume two concern the store s grocery department and document transactions with wholesale suppliers between 1923 and 1924 Examples of local merchants with whom McLeod s dealt are the Merchants Grocery Company Hattiesburg Grocery Company Mattingly s Bakery Mohler Sons Coffee Company and Shelby Wholesale Company Box 3 contains a Purchase Journal

president of Mississippi Normal College now USM purchased a handkerchief for ten cents This volume also records salaries of McLeod Company employees at the end of each month Due to its size it was necessary to place the second Sales Journal 1920 1925 out of chronological order It can be found in Box 10 The final Sales Journal 1926 1931 the rear portion of which is devoted to invoice records detailing transactions with suppliers is located in Box 5 Boxes 6 and 7 contain what appear to be Creditors Ledgers 1917 1923 1925 1930 reflecting activity concerning accounts with suppliers Box 8
