The Chase Papers form a large and important
collection. The holdings trace the early development of
Florida's commercial citrus industry and comprise the
most extensive extant collection of material on the
subject; the collection is a microcosm of the early citrus
industry in Florida. The Chase Papers include materials
written between 1883 and 1940.
Extending over a three quarters of a century period,
the papers document the conversion of peninsula
Florida from forested and cattle ranch lands into prime
citrus groves and neat, little towns. New residents,
especially from the North, poured in, contributing to a
movement which set the pattern and began the
momentum for the state's rapid growth in the 1970s and
In 1878, Sydney Octavius Chase (1860-1941), after
reading about orange groves in Scribner's magazine,
came to Florida from Philadelphia with a letter of
introduction to J. E. Ingraham, General Henry S.
Sanford's local representative. His brother, Joshua
Coffin Chase (1858-1948), joined him in 1884 and
together they formed Chase and Company. The
brothers came to Florida at the right time-right for
Florida citrus and right for them. The older of the three
brothers, Randall, remained in the North, retaining
close ties and augmenting finances when needed. Strong
family ties and continuing contacts resulted in a large
volume of family correspondence, contemporary and

The Chase Papers

genealogical, and photographs. The Chases were a
mobile family, its members shuttling back and forth
from Florida to Maine and to Hawaii, South America,
Europe, the North Cape and Russia. In the course of
conducting the business of their companies in citrus,
vegetables and related lines, the brothers took part in
community development especially in Sanford,
Jacksonville and Orlando. They participated in civic,
educational and charitable causes through individual
accomplishments and active membership in many
organizations and groups. Time would prove the worth
of their resourceful leadership, their advanced and, often
dramatic, ideas. The correspondence between the
brothers, members of their families, and the archives of
Chase and Company form the bulk of the collection.
Chase and Company of Sanford was a citrus growing
and shipping firm which grew out of a broadly based
insurance firm. Equally important in agriculture were
the brother's holding companies: Chase Groves, Inc.,
and Chase Investment Company. All phases of
citriculture and early efforts at insect and disease control
are covered in the collection. Simple harvesting, packing
and shipping procedures are shown to progress into
more sophisticated methods over the years. The
refrigeration of fresh fruit (and celery) for shipment and
fruit canning are touched upon. "Frozen" citrus is
mentioned, but only the earliest forms of the current
methods of processing citrus by freezing fall in the era of
the collection. Logical expansion moved Chase and
Company into fertilizer, growers' supplies, real estate,
banking and foreign trade. Investments were made in
Gulf Coast fishing and shipping and in tung oil and
pineapple growing. Celery production, which began as a

stop-gap during freeze recovery intervals, became a
profitable activity of the firm. The researcher will find
each of these auxiliary subjects covered in significant
The brothers' participation in trade organization
work augmented their own business affairs, increased
their influence and benefitted the industry as a whole.
Their affable relationship with scores of prominent men
in business and political life stand out in the collection.
The Chase companies were never timid regarding
litigation and worked untiringly with regulatory
agencies, fighting in and out of court, for the economic
betterment of agriculture.
Three factors render the Chase Papers collection
unique: the longevity of Chase and Company, its
coverage of an emerging Florida and its commercial
citrus and vegetable industries, and the fact that the
papers have survived virtually intact.
Several related collections augment the materials
found in the Chase Papers. The Marston Science
Library on the University of Florida campus maintains
extensive holdings supporting citrus and Florida
agricultural research, as does the Lake Alfred
Experimental Station Library, University of Florida,
which is reputed to hold the largest collection of
materials devoted to citrus research. Related and
historically significant materials will be found in the
General Henry S. Sanford Collection, in the public
library of Sanford, Florida (selected segments of this
collection have been microfilmed and are available at the
P. K. Yonge Library of Florida History, University of
Florida) and the Historical Association of Southern
Florida, Miami, which contains information on the early

The Chase Papers

exploration of the Everglades and contacts the Chase
family made with early settlers in South Florida. The
Ingraham Papers at the P. K. Yonge Library of Florida
History, University of Florida, contain interesting and
extensive descriptions of personal experiences involving
the Chases, such as the trip across the Everglades made
by Sydney Chase, and information on peninsula Florida
railroads which were important to the Chase's
Topics for research abound in the comprehensive
material on agriculture and crops. Historians will find in
the Chase Papers material on events and personalities
during the developing years of Sanford and other central
Florida towns. The Chases were a mobile, northern,
affluent and literate family living in Florida. All
members of the family maintained a large and active
correspondence which is filled with precise details
concerning their lives and their surroundings and,
consequently, present excellent research opportunities
for the social historian.


The Chase Papers fall into three record groups and 16
series. The Collection is in the order in which it was
received from the Chase family.

Record Group I
The Chase Company Records

This group contains records of Chase and Company
primarily contained in the correspondence files of
Sydney O. Chase and Joshua C. Chase. The records
extend from the company's earliest activity through
growing, packing and shipping fresh citrus produce and
the improvement of methods in each process. Significant
impediments to successful citrus agricultural develop-
ment, such as freezes and the Mediterranean fruit fly,
are covered.

Record Group II
General Business Records

This group is made up of the correspondence of
Sydney O. Chase and Joshua C. Chase in developing
and improving their own citrus groves, financing their

The Chase Papers

businesses, participating in a wide range of trade
association activities, improving distribution, and by
branching out experimentally into tung oil and
pineapple growing.

Record Group III
Personal Correspondence and Family Records

An extensive interest in life, mankind and in the joys
of family relationships are recorded in this Group. The
Group relates the early history and genealogy of the
family, trips abroad, annual visits from Florida to
Philadelphia and Maine, and describes community
celebrations. Diaries, memoirs, photographs and
personal letters contain extensive biographical
information and reveal personal business matters,
community, charitable and civic work which played an
important part in their lives.
The Papers of Laura DuVal Chase (Mrs. Sydney O.
Chase), a great-granddaughter of William P. DuVal,
concern genealogy, biography and patriotic work. The
Memoirs of Mary Justice Lee Chase (Mrs. Joshua) cover
the life of the family in Jacksonville.

Contents of the Collection

The Chase Papers are made up principally of
correspondence files, invoices, receipts, agreements,
contracts, reports and property title records. There are

The Chase Papers

record books, photographs of groves and other
properties, maps, newspaper clippings and copies of
publications bearing on the work of the company or on
personal interests and activities of family members. The
personal papers consist of letters (many are holographs),
photographs, memoirs, diaries of travels, day books,
genealogical correspondence and charts.


The Chase Papers were given to the University of
Florida in 1981 by members of the Chase family. They
are housed in the P. K. Yonge Library of Florida
History, a special collection in the University of Florida
Libraries, in 30 legal sized file drawers and are available
to all qualified researchers.
Correspondence concerning the collection should be
addressed to the Librarian, P. K. Yonge Library of
Florida History, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32611. Telephone inquiries should be made to
number (904) 392-0319. The Library is generally
opened to the public between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
(EST), Monday through Friday, but the schedule varies
with the University's calendar. Potential users are urged
to write or to telephone prior to making a trip to use the
The Collection is in good condition. Most of the
holographic material has been transcribed.

Sydney O. Chase and Joshua C. Chase, brothers from
Philadelphia, formed Chase and Company on May 15,
1884, in Jacksonville, Florida. The company was
organized as an insurance company and was a first step
toward setting up what became a citrus and vegetable
Record Group I consists of the correspondence of the
two brothers in equal parts, sometimes overlapping and
confirming, sometimes augmenting. Sydney, the
younger of the two, came to Florida late in 1878. He
began his education in citrus as an employee of General
Henry S. Sanford who was already established in central
Florida. Joshua joined his brother the year they formed
the company. The two continued to work together
except for an interval during freeze recovery, 1895 to
1903, when Joshua lived in California and Missouri,
gaining funds and experience in growing methods and in
marketing nationally and overseas.1 Close watch was
kept over the years on citriculture in California and

1TheJCC correspondence between the years 1895 and 1903, when
he was in California, has not yet been found. These years, during
which he met his second wife, Mary Justice Lee, and became deeply
involved in the California citrus industry, have been described in a
short paper by his daughter, Cecilia Chase Lasbury.

The Chase Papers

The firm established offices in Jacksonville and
Orlando, in addition to the Sanford operations, and
packing houses throughout the state. Their holding
companies developed as the organization became more
sophisticated. Chase and Company was a stock
company. In 1913 the two brothers owned 75 percent
of the stock and W. R. Harney held 25 percent.
The brothers' correspondence documents the
company's activities in growing citrus and in
experimenting in the principal phases of propagation,
quality marketing, packing and shipping, as well as
pertinent legislation, tax matters and banking activity.
Materials also include Chase and Company
photographs, annual reports, bulletins from the Florida
and the United States Departments of Agriculture, and
trade associations' publications which contain citrus and
vegetable statistical compilations of use to the company.
The record group contains five series.

Series 1
Correspondence Files: Sydney 0. Chase
Access Numbers
13.1 13.107
14.1 14.128
15.1 -15.74

Chase and Company was founded by SOC and JCC
in 1884. This series contains SOC's correspondence
with noted state horticultural authorities (i.e., H. Harold
Hume, W. Krome) and agricultural officials in the
promotion of citrus, disease control, packing and
shipping of citrus to domestic and foreign markets. The
business relations between the company and the Lykes

The Chase Papers

Brothers Steamship Company of Tampa, which handled
the company's overseas business, are documented.
SOC joined JCC in lobbying, through trade
associations, for legislation which would encourage and
benefit the industry. Several company properties,
associates and employees are mentioned in this series, as
well as the decision to move the company's office from
Jacksonville to Orlando in 1925.

Series 2
Joshua C. Chase
Access Numbers
26.1 26.84
27.1 -27.68
28.1 28.66

Most of the papers in this series are original, although
copies of SOC's correspondence are also inlcuded. JCC
was the entrepreneur and represented the companies
before government agencies and through service on
official boards. There was no detail of the citrus industry
too small to elude JCC, nor did any experiment fail to
attract his consideration. His letters are models of
compact and comprehensive expression. Business was
important to him personally and he showed a sincere
interest in his correspondents. His executive talent in
delegating authority and in maintaining a loyal staff are
readily apparent.
JCC fought frequently for citrus; arsenic spray was
one of his targets. Another, the racketeering in New
York City markets (especially in green peppers) by crime
syndicates whose attempts to force purchase from

The Chase Papers

controlled firms threatened the industry. He also stood
up for the good name of Florida on every occasion,
especially when he thought the state had been unfairly
maligned, as in one instance by the Governor of Maine.
In 1932, the Company purchased the refrigerated
steamship "Osceola" to move fruit. JCC was cautious,
though interested, in the highly experimental frozen
juice being promoted in California in 1930 to utilize
surplus fruit. An all electric ship, "Twin Cities," which
arrived in Tampa in 1925 caught his scientist's eye but
he judged it impractical.
There are brief references in this series to fibre boxes
(1921), Haitian logwood and pineapples.

Series 3
Chase Citrus Sub-Exchange
Access Numbers

The affairs of this exchange form a portion of the
SOC correspondence, revealing the extent of the Chase
marketing influence in south central Florida. Annual re-
ports are included, as well as a list of brands.

Series 4
Business Photographs
Access Numbers
15.100- 15.108

The SOC correspondence files include photographs
of agricultural activities, which have had a low rate of
survival in Florida. There are photographs of packing
houses (1908), bunk houses, groves at early and later
stages of growth, harvesting and grove land views.
Celery fields and harvesting are shown in 1906. The
Sanford office of the firm in 1895 is the earliest
significant photograph. Others show black employees'
outings, state fair displays and highway signs of the
company in 1940.

Series 5
Statistics, Reports, Historical Data
Access Numbers
10.51 10.57
11.12 11.78
12.1 12.12

This catch-all series contains statistical materials used
by the company in keeping a watchful eye on the citrus
and vegetable industries in Florida and in competing
states, published by the Florida and the United States
Departments of Agriculture and by the United States
Weather Bureau. Mediterranean fruit fly reports and
Grower's Reimbursement Committee statistics reveal
the effect of this disaster. The company officials
compared fruit handling costs of Chase Investment
Company with those of other companies. In short, these

The Chase Papers

statistics were used to gauge and improve the activities
of all the Chase companies.
While these publications are not notable and other
and better material will be found in the Florida
Newspaper Archives in the P. K. Yonge Library of
Florida History, information concerning prominent
men associated with the Chase companies is significant.
Of historical value is the original July 2, 1728, petition
of one Jacob Vernon to the Mayor of Philadelphia. The
reason for its presence in the Chase Papers is not



In Record Group II the Chase brothers' mental and
physical vitality is reflected in a multiplicity of business
interests. The breadth and depth of their interests are
sustained throughout the span of their active years
which continue to a remarkable degree into their later
SOC and JCC moved together with the times which
led them into the more advanced stages of the citrus
industry, as well as other business interests which,
geographically, covered the state: citrus, celery and
other vegetables in the peninsula, phosphate in the
southwest, fishing in Tampa and Key West and tung oil
groves in Jefferson County. Diseases and pests,
including the first visitation of the Mediterranean fruit
fly, claimed much attention during this period. Banking,
centered in Jacksonville and joined with their interests
in rail and water transportation, bound the empire
These gregarious brothers were effective participants
in trade association work. They were active members in
all organizations which could either affect their interest
or promote Florida. While the Depression years were
keenly felt, they were weathered effectively.
The Record Group includes records of the three
brothers' finances and several early reports of the

7.1 7.69

The diversity of SOC's interests is well illustrated in
this series. He and JCC purchased groves and brought
them under the aegis of their companies, or sold them.
The Chase Investment Company (the brothers' totally
owned holding company), was promoted, but was
adversely affected by the Mediterranean fruit fly
infestation. Several projects which were related to fruit
and vegetable growing attracted the attention of the
Chases, including drainage of the Everglades and the
digging of several canals.
Fort Carswell, a former military property in North
Carolina, was purchased, held for a time, then sold.
Investing in Florida real estate (residences, acreage,
ranch lands, commercial properties, utilities) was
extensive and centered around central Florida, especially
at Sanford. A residential subdivision and a small railroad
ranked among the most interesting properties of the
Chase companies at this time.

Series 2
Correspondence, JCC
Access Numbers
20.45- 20.121

JCC joined his brother, SOC, in much of the action
reflected in Series 1. The relevant correspondence
indicated the concurrent action of the two. In addition,
JCC's specific activities were in scientific advancements
such as coloring of fruit, new types of insect sprays,
shipping techniques and observations of the weather as
it affected crops.
Attention to these details in no way distracted JCC
from participating in all phases of the business. He was
somewhat ahead of his time in bettering employee
relationships, especially with blacks.

Most of the photographs in this series are mounted,
identified and clear. They depict the principal grove
properties and the tung oil groves in Jefferson County.
There is little to learn about citrus growing from
these photographs.

Trade Associations
Access Numbers
11.1 11.11
23.35 -23.44A
23.45 24.80
30.1 -30.46

Trade Associations were (and are) the life blood of the
citrus and vegetable industries of Florida. They set
standards and enforce them; they offer advantages in
grove care, harvesting, packing, distributing and,
especially, in selling crops. They represent the best
efforts of the best people in the industry.
The Chases were firm believers in these associations,
worked diligently in them and fought for such matters as
tax equity, high industry standards and constant
improvement. They demonstrated their support by their
willingness to pay in time and money to support those to
which they belonged. Voluminous records of these
associations are in this series.
The Chases were members of state and national
associations of growers and shippers of the products of
the Chase companies. Among the more influential of the
groups were the American Fruit Growers, American
Fruit and Vegetable Shippers Association, Florida
Growers Clearing House Association, Growers and
Shippers League of Florida, Clearing House Association
and the Florida Citrus Exchange.
Prominent officials in these groups are mentioned in
this series. The dedication of the Chase company
officials to improvement held the companies constantly

The Chase Papers

in the forefront. It was this inclination, or talent, rather,
which led JCC into cooperative efforts to produce an
acceptable frozen citrus juice.

Series 5
Tung Oil Groves
Access Numbers
7.57 7.59
8.1 -8.15

The tung tree of China found ready acceptance in
Florida's climate and the production of oil from the nut
of the tree offered a promising new industry to the state.
However, trees in Florida had just begun to bear when
chemical substitutes for the oil were perfected and the
natural oil dropped from the market.
The trees remain today as glorious pink bowers in the
Spring, but have no crop value.
The Chases were among other forward-looking
investors who put money into tung oil groves. Their
properties were in Jefferson County. This series
contains growing methods and oil sales statistics, as well
as land titles.



Record Group III contains the voluminous personal
correspondence of the family. It is voluminous because
each family member had a plethora of interests and
wrote constantly of them to each other and to mutual
friends. The letters are charming-full of chatty details,
of joy of life and of sadness in disaster. The family is
revealed to be highly mobile in spite of its many ties to
homes and businesses in Florida.
The Chases knew how to live fully and pleasantly.
While working very hard to accomplish high goals, they
made time for pleasure. There are descriptions of trips
to Hawaii, South America and abroad, and constant
comings and goings between Florida, Philadelphia and
Maine. The records begin with SOC's description of his
walk from Sanford to Tampa through a wilderness of
faint trails, and contain one of the earliest descriptions,
written in 1892, of an exploration of the Everglades
which exemplifies the family spirit.
This was a family which kept records: diaries,
memoirs, biographical data, genealogical charts, wills.
A family interest in helping blacks began in 1833,
according to a letter from John Greenleaf Whittier
(copy in the Collection). It was in that year that Joshua
Coffin (grandfather of the brothers) and Whittier

The Chase Papers

attended a convention in Philadelphia where the Ameri-
can Anti-Slavery Society was formed. Coffin was "one of
the earliest Abolitionists," Whittier wrote.
Membership in patriotic societies and a description of
social life in Jacksonville are included in this Record
There are six series in this Record Group.

Access Numbers
1.1 1.76
2.1 -2.75
3.1 3.36
9.1 9.86

This series shows the life-long interest of SOC in
keeping in touch with family and friends through letters
and gifts of fruit. His service on the board of the Federal
Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Jacksonville branch, is included
in this series.
SOC became interested in writing the history of
various movements and in establishing memorials to
worthy individuals and causes. He looked after his
investments and graciously received honors from
admiring friends and a grateful community.
Many prominent Florida citizens, acquaintances and
associates are mentioned, and their work often
discussed, which is one of the strengths of the collection.
Pocket diaries (not book diaries) and notebooks are
contained in this series.

The series refers to JCC's personal activities,
especially in Jacksonville, which involved him in the
Barnett Bank Board, service on various state
commissions, boy scout work (he was a Silver Beaver),
and the presidency of the Florida Historical Society
Continuing and increasing correspondence with all
family members and family reunions form a large part of
this series. Yacht, golf and social clubs in Jacksonville,
Winter Park, Mountain Lake, Orlando (Florida) and
Camden (Maine) vied for his time with the Florida
Children's Home Society, the implementation of plans
for the advancement of Rollins College and civic work.
The correspondence, which is substantial and
complete, could support a biography which explores
JCC's personal accomplishments in relationship to the
development of Florida.

This series is a small collection of personal letters
written by Mrs. Sydney O. Chase during her lifetime.
She was a graduate of Salem Female Academy in North
Carolina. Biographical data on her great grandfather,
Governor William P. DuVal and genealogical data on
the family and on the Randolph family are included in
this series.
The Whitner line is traced back to Pocahontas. Mrs.

Access Numbers
22.1 -22.66

This series contains materials on the family exclusive
of the immediate five brothers, sisters and their children.
The material does not relate to the Chase citrus and
celery empire nor to Florida. Its inclusion lies in its
genealogical value.
Abolition was a strongly held position by several
members of the family. For example, Joshua Coffin
came South in an attempt to retrieve a free Negro who
had been sold into slavery. His account is present in this

Memoir of MaryJustice Lee Chase (1904 1926)
Access Number

This memoir is a part of an account of the JCC family
life in Jacksonville between 1904 and 1926. It depicts the
life style of an affluent Florida family which had retained
its ties with the North. Summers in Maine were de
rigueur. French governesses (some of whom spoke no
English) were retained for the early training of the
children. Later they attended Miss Theodore Fleming's
school, as well as the Flagler School and Concordia, all
in Jacksonville. The list of friends mentioned in this

The Chase Papers

series is indicative of the Chases' position in the city:
Cummer, Angas, Stockton, Baker, Perry, Fleming and
The Memoirs add new facts to recorded Jacksonville
history in describing social life and culture, even a 1907
Shakespeare Club.
