WISEMAN TRADING COMPANY. Records; 1925-1948. 11.2 cu. ft.

A general store was first opened in Wiseman, a mining town on the Middle Fork of the Koyukuk River near the mouth of Wiseman Creek, around 1910. The original main store building burned in 1927, and the store was moved to a building which had served as a warehouse. From the mid 1920s until 1948, the store was operated by Sam Dubin, Cora Dubin, William English, Sr., and M. Walter Johnson. The store was operated under the names of Sam Dubin, General Merchandise (1927-1933); Mrs. Sam Dubin, General Merchandise (1933-1938); and Wiseman Trading Company (1938-1948). Sam Dubin also operated stores at Bettles and Alatna (1928-1930), and freighted materials up the Koyukuk River. The store was closed in August 1945 and reopened on a smaller scale in 1946.

The collection consists of business records of the Wiseman Trading Company general store and its antecedents for the period from 1925 to 1948. The most complete records are dated from 1940 to 1945. Included are journals; cash books; sales ledgers; account ledgers; a price list for merchandise; cash sales tags; credit sales tags; cash vouchers; trial balances; merchandise summaries, merchandise inventories; correspondence; orders; bills, invoices, and statements; check and deposit registers; bank statements with canceled checks; insurance policies and related correspondence; and a check-out register for the Pioneer Public Library.

The collection was presented to the archives by M. Walter Johnson and William D. English, Jr. in 1995. A deed of gift was signed in 1995.
