Subseries 6.2
Southern Talc Company records, 1934-1949
Boxes 45-49, XOP1

Scope and Content Note

This series contains the records of the Southern Talc Company of Atlanta and Chatsworth, Georgia. The company was incorporated in 1933 and sold in 1942. Hartsfield helped organize the company and served as legal counsel and president. This was apparently Hartsfield's first major business venture and the only time he played such an active role in guiding the affairs of a company. Included among the company's papers are letters advertising the talc for sale; correspondence with sales agents and purchasers; inventories; purchasing orders; receipts; and correspondence between Hartsfield, T.N. Brooks, and V.C. Pickering, fellow officers of the Company. The Southern Talc Company was a small mining company which battled both the sluggish economy of the Depression and the mineral use restrictions of the first years of World War II and was only a limited financial success. This subseries consists mostly of correspondence, with scattered blueprints, reports, and financial records.
