Content Description

The collection consists of financial statements, inventory lists, supply invoices, check stubs, and account books for the Osburn Hardware Store in Philip (S.D.). Paul Osburn managed the Philip Coast to Coast hardware store in 1942. The following year, he purchased the business and joined the “Marshall Wells” chain of hardware stores. In the 1950s, “Marshall Wells” sold their line of merchandise and Mr. Osburn joined the “Our Own” hardware association. Osburn sold the business in 1973. The records are mostly dated to the final years that Osburn owned the hardware store, roughly from 1968 to 1973. The supply invoices and inventory list provide insight into specific items available for purchase at the hardware store in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The invoices include the price of each item. The account books show the financial status of the hardware business. A box list is included.
