Quackenbush was a partner of Sibson, Quackenbush & Co. of Portland, Oregon, a shipping, commission, and insurance firm.
Most of the letters are from his brother, Alfred, who was a farm implement and hardware dealer in Lewiston, Idaho. A few letters from various church officials in Oregon concern Presbyterian Church matters. Alfred Quackenbush's letters are usually on business-news of opportunities, requests for supplies, or requests for credit. He seems to have had an eye for real estate opportunities as well as for implement sales.
