Historical Note

Jeremiah Collins was born in Ireland in 1850 and came to America as a child. Orphaned at age twelve, he worked his way through public schools and Indiana State University in Terre Haute, from which he graduated in 1873. He went into journalism, working first for the Wabash News, then the Logansport Courier. He married Letta E. Fitzgerald in 1878; together, they went to Fort Benton, Montana Territory. In Fort Benton, he established the River Press, which he edited until 1887. He also established the Great Falls Tribune in 1885. In 1889, he withdrew from newspapering to write a history of Montana. After completing that project, he was appointed receiver of public money in the United States General Land Office.

In 1889, Collins established the Collins Land Company in Helena, Montana. The company dealt with public lands, and bought and sold land scrip and represented clients to the Department of the Interior with regard to public lands. This company was so successful that he opened an eastern branch office in Washington, DC, in 1901. The Collins Land Company was one of the largest land scrip dealers in the United States and continued in the business until 1957, when Congress discontinued the use of scrip.

Collins had two children: Lena Agnes and Ted E. He died in 1934 in Washington.

Ted E. Collins took over the Land Company after his father's death and operated it until his death in 1956. The company had expanded into the insurance business in 1910, and that portion of the business increased steadily as the land scrip business declined.

Margaret Chivers was president of the company when its corporate charter expired in 1974 and it ceased to conduct business.

The Collins Realty Company was incorporated in Helena in 1909. Its charter expired in 1929. The Collins Company was incorporated in 1906, and its charter expired in 1926. The Beartooth Stock Company was a livestock raising and agricultural development business headquartered in Helena, Montana.

Series II:  Case Files, 1907-1951
28.5 linear feet

This series contains land scrip case histories collected by the Collins Land Company as documentation for title purchases and transfers. The Collins Land Company created four distinct sequences for these case histories and attached a case number to each file (beginning at zero for each sequence). The original sequences and case numbers have been retained for historical reference; however, records explaining the tracking system rationale and detailing gaps in each sequence no longer existed at the time the collection was accessioned to the archives. These records provide early property definitions and ownership histories for land parcels across the United States, with particular emphasis on Montana and the Pacific Northwest.
