Biographical history

J.T. Horne (d. 1925) was a lumber dealer with Graham, Horne Ltd. (also known as Graham, Horne & Co.) which began in 1883. The company was bought out by the Pigeon River Lumber Co. at the end of the 1800s. He was president of the West Algoma Agricultural Association, secretary of the Fort William Patriotic Society (1915-1917) and was made an honourary life member of the Kaministiquia Club in 1923. He was one of Fort William's biggest boosters at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of the papers of J.T. Horne. The papers are arranged into four series, the principal being a letter book (1907-1910) and a note and sketch book (1905-1909). The papers relate primarily to Horne's business activities as a lumber merchant though the sketch book concerns the construction of the Canadian Iron and Foundry Co.'s plant in Fort William in which Horne may have held an interest. This is an excellent source for determining the technical details of iron foundries in this period. Fonds is comprised of the following series: Series A 4/1/1 - Letter book - 1,000 fol - 1907-1910 Series A 4/2/1 - Note and sketch book - 6cm - 1905-1909 Series A 4/3/1 - Diary - 1cm - 1888, 1890 Series A 4/4/1-2 - Receipts and lists - 1904-1905, 1910
