Scope and Contents note

From the Collection: The collection consists of John H. Adams's and his son, John R. Adams's, business correspondence. For the most part the correspondence is typewritten and covers primarily the decade of the 1920s. The elder Adams's outgoing correspondence is about half the size of his incoming correspondence, with much of the latter from J. A. Curtis and C. H. Judkins, businessmen and attorneys at law in Cleveland, Ohio. His son's outgoing business correspondence is about three times the size of his incoming correspondence. The correspondence pertains primarily to their mining interests and their company, O'Neals Lime Works Inc. There is a prominent and unexplained gap in both father and son's business correspondence between 1914 and 1922-23. The collection also includes mineral deposit maps of the Tuscaloosa - Birmingham area and material about the Vulcan statue and Vulcan Park in Birmingham. Miscellaneous items include a limited number of various personal and business bills and receipts, unidentified correspondence, credit and financial reports, abstracts, undated mining notes, and mimeographed reports.
