An Autographed Letter Signed, H.W. Adams on Adams Cattle Company Letterhead, Glendale, Arizona, 1901, 1ALS

Item #018490

A letter addressed to Friend Clark, dated February 15, 1901 (in answer to letter to a check for $50.00 that was due the previous November). H.W. Adams arrived from Maine and became the superintendent of William H. Bartlett's Sahuaro Ranch. Adams was with the Glendale (Az) Livestock Association which soon ended and Adams who served as President donated the $1,000 to the library to purchase books. It was the completion of the Arizona Canal in 1885 that led to the development of the Glendale area and by 1897 there were several large cattle ranches located there. Adams Cattle Company eventually merged with Herbert W. Hamilton to form the Hamilton and Adams Cattle Company. Adams became an officer of the Maricopa Loan and Trust Company and developed many kinds of produce as the 1904-1905 report of the American Pomological Society reveals. Curiously, Kaila White of the Arizona Republic wrote an article on the Paranormal that exists at Glendale's Historic Sahuaro Ranch Park where a woman in a white gown wanders at night as well as H.W. Adams who is said to appear in a black suit. A nice example on the letterhead showing Adams as President and W.H. Bartlett, Jr as Secretary and Treasurer.
