Summary:
The inventory and appraisal records have many gaps. The inventory book, 1891-1895, contains entries such as lumber in drying room or basement, prepared material, and stock in veneering room. The inventory was done on the first of January each year, except 1893, when an additional inventory was done on July 1. Appraisals of plant and equipment were done in 1929, 1939, 1979, and 1980. Within the appraisal book of 1929, written by the Standard Appraisal Company, were the miscellaneous inventory and appraisal sheets of 1922-1915, concerning the Astoria plant. The Censuses of Manufacturers, 1909-1947, are forms from the U.S. Census Bureau designed to gather information about manufacturers. Categories of information include character of industry (i.e., piano-making) number of supervisors and wage eaners, time of operation during the year, the products and their value, the costs of materials, mill supplies, fuel, the nature of the steam engines employed, and the sort of fuel consumed.
