Administrative History

The Buchanan Hardware Company originated from a tin shop set up by Scottish immigrant Robbie Buchanan in Richfield Springs, New York in 1849. The business remained in the same location, but expanded over the years, becoming a stove and hardware store. Buchanan died in 1898 and soon after his son-in-law, Eugene A. Hinds, became the president of the company, which was incorporated as the Buchanan Hardware Company in 1899.

John A. Losee, Sr. joined the company in 1892, and became president after Hinds’ death in 1912. By 1934 the board of directors of the company consisted of Losee (still President); Belle Buchanan, vice-president; Marian G. Losee, secretary; John A. Losee, Jr., treasurer; and Quentin M. Losee, director.

In 1935 the company acquired the Norwich branch from Anderson Hardware Company, and in 1949 it acquired the Sherburne branch from the George W. Smith Hardware Store. Buchanan Hardware was part of a buying group consisting of stores with similar interests called the Affiliated Stores. These included Aikman Hardware Company of Cazenovia, Doyle Hardware Company of Utica, Lyons Falls, and Port Leyden, and Stewart and Bergen Company of Fort Plain.

As of 1949, the company board consisted of John A. Losee, Sr., chairman of the board; John A. Losee, Jr., president, treasurer and manager; Everett M. Lane, vice-president and assistant manager; Quentin M. Losee, vice president; Mary Ough, assistant treasurer; and Marian G. Losee, secretary.

In 1954 the Company bought the Cooperstown branch from Charles C. Root of Root Hardware.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains the business records of the Buchanan Hardware Company, based in Richfield Springs, Otsego County, N.Y., with branches in Cooperstown, Norwich, and Sherburne, N.Y. There are records from each of the branches. The branch location is often indicated on the individual folder titles. Folder titles with no location may or may not indicate that the records within it are from the home branch in Richfield Springs depending, most likely, on the original order of the collection. The bulk of the records are financial, including invoices, customer account sheets, daily store sheets and merchandise charge sheets (which will be explained in the series descriptions), and ledgers (loose sheets and bound volumes). Other financial records include freight bills, petty cash expenditures, and orders.

Correspondence is another prominent type of record in this collection, outgoing as well as incoming (carbon copies of the former). Additionally, there are inventories which, like the collection as a whole, are either loose sheets or bound volumes. The loose records in this collection generally range from about 1945 to 1962, while the bound volumes range from 1888 to 1956.

Overall, the records are the most voluminous during the 1945-1962 period. This is the only period for which correspondence is available, which is a relative weakness of the collection. While the account books do cover the 1888 to 1945 period, they appear to be incomplete. Another weakness in the collection is the lack of internal documents shedding light on major management decisions and strategies. The correspondence is about as close as one gets in this regard.

Series Descriptions

Series 1 – Correspondence. 1945-1960. 4 cu. ft. (4 boxes).

The correspondence is broken up into two subseries, Outgoing and Incoming. Outgoing refers to letters sent by Buchanan Hardware to various suppliers, customers, other hardware stores, etc., and generally consists of carbon copies of the original letters. Incoming consists of original letters received by the company. This series also includes 100th anniversary materials, particularly a list of over 1000 registrants for the celebration, along with ephemera. Arranged chronologically and then alphabetically within each year.

Series 1, Subseries 1 – Outgoing. 1945-1960. 1.75 cu. ft. (2 boxes).

Series 1, Subseries 2 – Incoming. 1952-1960. 2.25 cu. ft. (3 boxes).

Series 2 – Financial Records. 1888-1962. 21.25 cu. ft. (23 boxes).

This series is divided into four subseries based on type of record, the most prominent being invoices, daily store receipts, and customer account sheets. The fourth subseries contains various other financial records, especially merchandise charge sheets, ledger sheets, and freight bills.

Series 2, Subseries 1. Invoices. 1952-1960. 6 cu. ft. (6 boxes).

The folder titles in this subseries refer either to a business name, an alphabetical range of names, or to Buchanan Hardware’s branch locations (Cooperstown, Norwich, Richfield Springs, and Sherburne), in which case they represent invoices accumulated at that branch. Some folder titles consist of only a date. Arranged chronologically and then alphabetically within each year.

Series 2, Subseries 2. Daily Store Sheets and Bank Deposit Receipts. 1952-1962. 3.5 cu. ft. (4 boxes).

Each day the different branch stores kept a list of items sold, with prices, creating one total for cash sales and another for charges. These are referred to here as daily store sheets. Each of these sheets is accompanied by a bank deposit receipt, indicating the amount of money deposited in the bank that day. Arranged alphabetically by branch location and then chronologically within each location.

Series 2, Subseries 3. Customer Account Sheets. 1954-1961. 3 cu. ft. (4 boxes).

These sheets list customer names and include columns for dates, items purchased, charges, credits, and balances. They often include an accumulation of purchases over a period of days, weeks, or months, as in a ledger. Some folder titles contain ranges of customer names (e.g., A-L or M-Z) while others refer to Buchanan Hardware branch locations, probably due to the original order of the records. Arranged chronologically and then alphabetically within each year, except at the end of the subseries where the arrangement is alphabetical by branch location.

Series 2, Subseries 4. Merchandise Charge Sheets, Ledger Sheets, Freight Bills, and Other Records. 1888-1962. 8.75 cu. ft. (11 boxes) + 25 volumes.

Merchandise charge sheets contain columns of item names with quantities, prices, and total amounts. They were created by each of the Buchanan Hardware branches. The ledger sheets include various accounts kept by Buchanan Hardware, such as accounts payable, merchandise inventory, merchandise sales, store expenses, and many others. Also included are freight bills, check stubs, petty cash expenditures, and orders. Additionally, there are various account books, which contain almost all of the pre-1940 records in this collection. They include ledgers, which differ from the ledger sheets in that they contain indexed accounts with customers and businesses, and expense accounts. Arranged alphabetically except for the volumes, which were left in the order of their original arrangement at NYSHA.

Series 3 – Inventories. 1924-1962. 1.5 cu. ft. (2 boxes) + 40 volumes.

The inventory records in this series include both loose sheets and bound volumes. The loose sheets were arranged alphabetically by store location, while the volumes were left in the order of their original arrangement at NYSHA, generally by store location.
