Scope and Contents

Ledger, journals, cash books, voucher and check registers. The company incorporated in 1912 in Maine, operated a number of ships successfully (some of them through the Crowell and Thurlow Intercoastal Company) through World War I. An unlucky investment in the Atlantic Coast Company (which Crowell and Thurlow took over in 1923) resulted in the company going into receivership in 1924. Most of the unbound papers relate to the affairs of the receivership under Paul J. Bertelsen, receiver, and Lee M. Friedman, his attorney.
