Biographical Note

Charles Herbert McLeod was born in 1859 and came to Missoula, Montana, from New Brunswick, Canada, in 1880 to work for local businessman Andrew Hammond. McLeod had been sent by Hammond’s sister, Mrs. George Fenwick of New Brunswick, after Hammond asked relatives and friends in New Brunswick for enterprising young men who would like to come west. Hammond was principal owner of a firm that had begun in Missoula in 1867 as Bonner and Welch, with E. L. Bonner as one of the principals. The name was changed to E. L. Bonner and Co. in 1871 with a change of owners.

Andrew Hammond had arrived in Montana in 1867, settled in Hell Gate in 1870, then moved to Missoula in late 1871. He soon became a clerk in the store for Richard Eddy. Hammond became a partner in the store in 1876 and the business was renamed Eddy, Hammond, and Co. In 1877, the store constructed its building at the intersection of Front Street and Higgins Avenue, on the Mullan military road, in Missoula. In 1881, the firm was awarded the contract to clear the right of way and provide the lumber for the construction of the Northern Pacific Railway. When the Northern Pacific was completed at Gold Creek, Montana, in 1883, business expanded considerably. The Montana Improvement Company, formed in 1882, took over this portion of the Eddy, Hammond, and Company business.

After the reorganization of Eddy, Hammond and Company as the Missoula Mercantile in 1885, Charles H. McLeod became the vice president and general manager; John M. Keith and Thomas G. Hathaway, immigrants from New Brunswick, also became involved. The Missoula Real Estate Association, another offshoot of the Mercantile, built the first Florence Hotel across the street from the Mercantile in 1888. After 1890, McLeod was responsible for the management and success of the various companies as well as the parent company. The South Missoula Land Company, yet another branch of the Mercantile, owned much of Missoula south of the Clark Fork River and was responsible for the extensive residential development there. In 1908, McLeod became president of the company and served in that capacity until his retirement in 1940.

The Missoula Mercantile also operated branch stores in Kalispell, Montana; Victor, Montana; Arlee, Montana; and at other locations throughout western Montana. One key to the Mercantile’s success was its strategy of operating temporary stores to serve logging and railroad construction camps; these operations followed the population they served. 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.

McLeod took an active part in state and city politics and activities, with extensive support for the Republican Party from the store’s assets. In 1888, he represented Missoula County at the state Republican convention. He was also president of the Missoula Light and Power Company and a director of the First National Bank of Missoula.

He married Clara Louise Beckwith in 1886; they had two children, Walter Herbert and Helen B. McLeod died in 1946.

Content Description

This collection contains personal and professional papers, financial records, photographic materials, and scrapbooks generated and/or collected by Charles Herbert McLeod as an official of the Missoula Mercantile Company, investor in multiple businesses throughout western Montana, and community leader. These materials constitute one of the Pacific Northwest's most detailed assemblages of rural general merchandising operations as well as a significant contribution to studies of Missoula's development from a crossroad town into a regional economic center for western Montana and beyond. Collection documents reveal Missoula Mercantile Company business practices and inter-relationships with other major business operations, Missoula's social and political networks, and McLeod family endeavors. In association with the Walter H. McLeod Collection (Mss 002) these materials reveal significant insights into the economic, political, and social patterns of Missoula and western Montana throughout the first half of the 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 reveal McLeod family commitments to maintaining diverse and flexible business operations as well as involvement in local, state, and regional Republican politics.

Custodial History :  

The bulk of this collection remained with Charles H. McLeod's descendants until accession into the K. Ross Toole Archives. A few small additions were contributed by descendants of Missoula Mercantile Company employees and independent historians.

Acquisition Information :  

Gifts of Walter H. McLeod, 1965; Olive (McLeod) Haugen, 1965, 1972, and 1973; R.H. Robinson 1972 and 1989; Vernon Krogstad, 1981; and Steve Leigh, 1988.

Processing Note :  

The materials in this collection were originally processed in six separate collections which reflected how they had been donated to the Archives: LC 1, LC 49, LC 60, SC 324, SC 254, and SC 296. Over 150 photographs donated in 1965 with the materials in LC 1 were separated during the processing of LC 1 and integrated into the Archives' general photograph collection.

In 2003 all Charles H. McLeod materials were reprocessed and integrated into one manuscript collection (Mss 001.) During this reprocessing ten volumes originally housed as oversize materials were relocated and housed within archival boxes for more effective preservation. All photographs received as part of the earlier-mentioned McLeod collections were integrated into Mss 001 and were assigned "new" numbers reflecting their organization within series [example: 1(VIII)21]. In 2011, to minimize ongoing confusion between "new" numbers and "legacy" numbers (numbers assigned at the time of their original aquisition), all photographs with legacy numbers were returned to those numbers [example: 76-101]. Photographs that had not been numbered prior to 2003 retain their collection and series based numbers.

Also in 2003, photographs numbered 76-101 through 76-119 and 78-45 through 78-85 were transferred by the processor from the Charles H. McLeod Papers (Mss 001) 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 what is now Mss 001.

Separated Materials :  

Thirteen bound journals originally processed within the Charles H. McLeod Papers were re-evaluated during 2003 reprocessing and were determined to be more accurately associated with the Walter H. McLeod Papers (Mss 002). This determination 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. These determinations were bolstered by date spans extending well beyond Charles H. McLeod's death (often by more than a decade) and the prevalence of Walter H. McLeod's signatures on such documents. These 14 volumes were integrated into the Walter H. McLeod Papers.

A Kalispell Mercantile Catalog, circa 1915, and a history of the Missoula Mercantile company, written in 1962 at Montana State University (now the University of Montana--Missoula), were transferred to Special Collections in 2003.

Description
Series I: Correspondence, 1885-1947
34.0 linear feet
This series contains general correspondence written and received by Charles H. McLeod over the course of his professional career as a prominent Missoula businessman. Many of these letters document both mundane and significant business decisions over the course of seven decades and provide details of Missoula Mercantile Company organizational structures, decision priorities, and operational adjustments in response to changing economic conditions. In addition, much of this correspondence records Charles McLeod's opinions regarding Montana farming practices, western Montana lifestyles, national and regional economic policies, political developments, and social trends. Materials in this series 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 Charles and members of the extended McLeod family. Many of Charles McLeod's closest business and professional associates were relatives (directly 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. In addition, McLeod family women constitute a major portion of this correspondence material and, thus, present an unusually concentrated source of 19th and early 20th Century feminine perspectives on family, business, and life in the American west.

67/108 Scrapbook, Charles H. McLeod’s 50th Year Celebration in Missoula, 1930
Series VIII: Photographs, 1865-1946
0.5 linear ft and one oversized box
This series contains photographs of the Missoula Mercantile Company store, Missoula and surrounding area, and the McLeod family. Most of the Missoula Mercantile photographs document the various departments and their respective merchandise. These photographs detail store layouts and merchandise presentation techniques. A few company employees appear in these photographs but none are identified. Photographs of Missoula and western Montana locations often provide bookend documentation of landscapes and neighborhoods from the first decade of the 20th Century into the 1930s. Many of the McLeod family photographs were taken near their Seeley Lake, Montana, property and lend insights into recreational practices among western Montana's elite families. The two different number systems reflect changes in photograph processing over time. Gaps in the number system 1(VIII): __ do not indicate missing photographs.
