J.W. Hodge (Change Islands, N.L.) fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1872-1957

Fonds consists of the business records of the J.W. Hodge branch at Change Islands and includes ledgers, journals, and other business records spanning almost 90 years of operation from the early 1870s to the end of the 1950s. It represents the records of four successive businesses that operated from the same premises during the period: William Waterman & Co.

J.W. Hodge; Lewis G. Hyde; and the Newfoundland and Labrador Export Company. Upon change in ownership, each new business assumed the records of its predecessor; thus, there is little apparent break in the records themselves. The original order has not been maintained.

Fonds is arranged in four series: Correspondence, 1888-1937; Financial records, 1872-1957; Miscellaneous, 1920-1928; Shipping and fisheries papers, 1884-1941.
