Biographical Note

Walter H. McLeod was born in Missoula, Montana, on September 30, 1887 to Charles Herbert and Clara Louise (Beckwith) McLeod. He graduated from Missoula County High School and continued his education at the University of Montana, where he was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.

He left college to begin his career with his father's Missoula Mercantile Company in 1911. In 1920 he became Vice President and in 1941, upon the retirement of his father, he became president of the Mercantile and of the Kalispell Mercantile Company. He became president of the Hotel Florence Company in 1939 and of the Demers Mercantile Company in Arlee, Montana, in 1942. He was also a director of the Hammond Lumber Company of San Francisco from 1941 to 1958, the Northern Pacific Railroad Company from 1948-1961, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis from 1948 to 1950, the Montana Power Company from 1955 to 1962, and the Montana Taxpayers Association from 1944 to 1961. Long active in Republican politics, he never entered public service directly, but the Mercantile provided considerable support for Republican interests.

The Missoula Mercantile and its branches and affiliates were one of the largest business concerns of the Pacific Northwest. Allied Stores Corporation purchased the Missoula Mercantile Company in 1959 for $1,056,000.

He was also active in the Boy Scouts of America; Missoula Lodge, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks; Rotary Club of Missoula; Missoula Chamber of Commerce; and the Missoula Country Club.

McLeod married Olive Wheeler, daughter of Charles S. and Lillian (Marsh) Wheeler in San Francisco in 1915. They had three children: Olive Brewster, Walter Herbert Jr., and Clara Marsh. McLeod died in Missoula on September 13, 1963.

Content Description

This collection contains personal and professional papers, financial records, photographic materials, and general corporate records generated and/or collected by Walter H. McLeod as an official of the Missoula Mercantile Company and regional business leader in western Montana. In conjunction with the papers of Charles H. McLeod, Walter's father, these materials constitute one of the Pacific Northwest's most detailed assemblages of rural general merchandising operations. Additionally, collection materials provide significant insights into interrelationships between Montana's most prominent economic enterprises during the middle decades of the 20th Century.

The Northern Pacific Railroad, the Montana Power Company, the Missoula Mercantile Company, and the Anaconda Copper Mining Company formed the economic nucleus for western Montana through most of the late nineteenth and twentieth century. Walter McLeod was a primary stockholder and corporate director with three of these enterprises and a close business associate of the fourth, the Anaconda Company. Additionally, he served as a director for the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and the Montana Taxpayers Association. From the production and harvest of raw materials to wholesale and retail distribution, from power generation and delivery to mass transportation, Walter McLeod was among the most highly connected and influential Montana business leaders of the mid-twentieth century. As documented in the correspondence, legal documents, and financial records of this collection the Missoula Mercantile Company dominated the retail and commercial supply trades throughout the region for half a century. Collection materials also reveal McLeod family commitments to maintaining diverse and flexible business operations as well as involvement in local, state, and regional politics.

Materials in this collection also document the role extended family played in McLeod family business decisions and daily life. In the majority of Missoula Mercantile Company subsidiaries, the boards of directors and primary shareholders were members of the extended McLeod family. The correspondence series contains extensive sequences of correspondence between family members, often seamlessly transitioning between business and personal topics. Walter McLeod's daughters and female relatives constitute a major portion of this correspondence material and, thus, present an unusually concentrated source of mid-twentieth century feminine perspectives on family, business, and life in the American west.

Acquisition Information :  

Gift of Olive Haugen, 1965 and 1969.

Processing Note :  

The materials in this collection were originally processed in three separate collections: LC 2, LC 56, and LC 171. In 2003 all Walter H. McLeod materials were integrated into one manuscript collection (Mss 002). During this reprocessing 13 bound volumes originally associated with the Charles H. McLeod Papers (Mss 001) were integrated into the Walter H. McLeod papers (Mss 002). Ten of the thirteen volumes were rehoused within archival boxes for preservation purposes. Transfer of these volumes to the current collection was based primarily on the span of years for each bound record, cross-referenced with the date of Walter's ascension to primary management of McLeod family investments. In addition, all photographs separated during original processing were reintergrated with the manuscript collection and all previously unprocessed photographs were fully processed and described within the collection.

Also, in 2003 some photographs that had long been held in the Charles H. McLeod Papers (Mss 001), were transferred to the Walter H. McLeod Papers (Mss 002). In 2011 those photographs were returned to the Charles H. McLeod Papers (Mss 001) as provenance records and earlier processing labels indicate that they were donated with the bulk of the other materials in Mss 001. The transferred photograph numbers are 76-101 through 76-119 and 78-45 through 78-85.

Series II:  Correspondence, 1910-1963
39.25 linear feet and 1 reel of microfilm

This series contains general correspondence written and received by Walter H. McLeod spanning five decades as a prominent Montana businessman and member of the extended McLeod family. The letters in this series relating to Walter McLeod's professional endeavors document both mundane and significant business decisions ranging from the Missoula Mercantile Company to the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Materials also document many of the commercial, political, and community organizations in which McLeod served as a member and/or leader.

This series also contains extensive sequences of correspondence between Walter and members of the extended McLeod family. Many of Walter McLeod's closest business and professional associates were relatives (direct and by marriage). These correspondence sequences provide significant insights into the depth and breadth McLeod family relations--often seamlessly transitioning back and forth between business and personal matters. Walter McLeod's daughters and female relatives constitute a major portion of this correspondence material and, thus, present an unusually concentrated source of mid-twentieth century feminine perspectives on family, business, and life in the American west. Researchers may be particularly interested in a sequence of correspondence between Walter McLeod and doctors at the Mercywood Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where Olive McLeod, Walter's wife, was admitted for a period of several months. These exchanges document specific treatment methods and standard practices at the hospital as well as lend some insights into perceptions of mental illness at mid-century.

This subseries presents insights into Missoula Mercantile Company procedures and management structures under Walter McLeod. The extent and nature of correspondence in this subseries indicate Walter McLeod was absent frequently and applied a management approach distinctively different than his father Charles H. McLeod.

Series X:  Florence Hotel, 1936-1963
8.0 linear feet

This series contains extensive materials generated by the Florence Hotel in Missoula, Montana, particularly regarding reconstruction projects following the catastrophic 1938 structural fire and the 1941 grand re-opening. Materials include general correspondence, research files regarding reconstruction subjects, financial records, legal documents, management records, and pamphlets/printed materials related to the grand reopening, including reference materials regarding comparable hotels in the Pacific Northwest. Collectively, these materials lend significant insights into the expectations that directed reconstruction efforts, detail aspects of the hotel's daily operations, and suggest the relative importance of the hotel within Missoula economic and cultural development during the 1940s and 1950s.

Subseries 1: Correspondence, 1937-1943
2.25 linear feet
This subseries contains incoming and outgoing correspondence. The major portion of these materials relate to reconstruction and grand re-opening projects following a catastrophic 1938 structural fire. The correspondence in this subseries provides detailed insights into the hotel investors' intentions, conceptions, and management expectations for reconstructing the hotel as one of the Pacific Northwest's finest regional-center establishments. Walter McLeod and others studied upscale, modern hotels in other Pacific Northwest cities of comparable size and economic status to Missoula. From those studies they defined goals for style, convenience, and comfort that blended old traditions with contemporary expectations (such as immediate automobile parking and in-room refrigerated cooling) with anticipation that the facility would showcase Missoula's best qualities and indirectly fuel economic development.

Series XIV:  Hammond Lumber Company, 1945-1955
0.75 linear feet

This series contains financial and organizational records from the Hammond Lumber Company, headquartered in San Francisco, California, during the period of these records. The series also includes two files of transcripts and notes generated by a project to write a history of the company. Titled "History of the Hammond Lumber Company," these materials document George B. McLeod's recollections on A.B. Hammond's business activities throughout the Pacific Northwest and range from operating lumber mills to influencing state/Federal land management decisions, from building and managing railroads to establishing general merchandise outlets. George B. McLeod was Charles McLeod's brother and manager of the Hammond Lumber Company. This history is a lightly edited transcript of oral history interviews with George McLeod that does not follow a coherent chronological or thematic order; however, it offers significant insights into business practices and rivalries among the Pacific Northwest's most visible resource tycoons and augments existing genealogical accounts of the relationships between the Hammond, McLeod, and Beckwith families.

Series XXII:  Northern Pacific Railroad Company, 1945-1961
2.5 linear feet

This series contains financial and organizational records generated by the Northern Pacific Railroad during Walter McLeod's tenure on the company's Board of Directors. Additionally, this series contains financial records from the Northwestern Improvement Company, then a subsidiary of the railroad. The Northern Pacific Railroad was one of the primary methods for transportation of goods and passengers throughout the Pacific Northwest. Materials in this series provide insights into the railroad's role in the economy of western Montana and the larger region as well as management procedures/expectations obscured within larger archival collections from the company itself. As a member of the Board of Directors, Walter McLeod served a central role in defining company goals and procedures during the railroad industry's most dramatic transformation period since the completion of cross-continental networks. From the late 1940s through the early 1960s construction of the federal interstate highway system and expanded state routes fundamentally changed the role of railroads in mass transportation of goods and passengers. These concerns are prevalent throughout the annual reports, market assessments, and inspection tour documents contained in this series.

Series XXV:  Printed Materials, 1930-1963
2.25 linear feet

This series contains extensive personal research files collected by Walter McLeod over the course of his professional career. These materials primarily consist of magazine articles, general reports, and promotional materials organized into general topics. Subject headings and the general organizational structure appears to be McLeod's own system; thus, these materials have been preserved following the structure present at donation to the K. Ross Toole Archives. The nature and structure of these materials present the most direct evidence of Walter McLeod's economic, social, and political views present in this collection--even the correspondence series tends not to reveal much about McLeod's beliefs beyond the specifics of business transactions or personal exchanges.
