Abstract: This collection consists of the correspondence, historical research materials, oral histories (tapes and transcriptions), and manuscript drafts used in the production of Tobacco Merchant: The Story of Universal Leaf Tobacco Company by Maurice Duke and Daniel P. Jordan (University Press of Kentucky, 1995).


Scope and Content Information


Universal Leaf Tobacco Company has its origins in the late nineteenth century, with the J.P. Taylor Company and its founder, Jacquelin P. Taylor. In 1918 the J.P. Taylor Company merged with five other leaf tobacco dealers to form Universal Leaf Tobacco Company. The company is now known as Universal Corporation, a holding company with interests in commodities in addition to tobacco.

As a leaf dealer, Universal Corporation is involved in the purchasing, processing, and storing of leaf tobacco for later sale to the manufacturers that produce cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco for the market. As such, though it is the largest independent leaf tobacco dealer in the world, with headquarters in Richmond, Va., and facilities on five continents, it is largely unknown to the general public. From the late 1960s to the mid-1970s, historian Joseph C. Robert began work on a history of Universal, conducting numerous interviews with key personnel and compiling various materials for study of the tobacco industry in general, and Universal in particular. However, Dr. Robert’s history never got past the research stage. In the early 1980s, Drs. Daniel P. Jordan and Maurice Duke undertook a similar project. With the help of Dr. Robert, who made much of his own research available to them, as well as years of research and interviewing on their own, Drs. Duke and Jordan were able to publish their book, Tobacco Merchant : The Story of Universal Leaf Tobacco Company, in 1995.

This collection consists of the historical research, oral histories, and manuscript drafts used in the production of Tobacco Merchant.


Biographical/Historical Information


Universal Leaf Tobacco began in the late nineteenth century as the J.P. Taylor Company. In 1918, the company merged with five other leaf tobacco dealers to form Universal Leaf Tobacco Company. Leaf dealers are involved in the purchasing, processing, and storing of leaf tobacco for later sale to the manufacturers that produce cigarettes, cigars, and pipe tobacco for the market. ULTC has now become the Universal Corporation, a giant holding company whose interests are beginning to extend beyond tobacco into other commodities. Universal's headquarters are located in Richmond, Va., with branches around the world.




This collection is organized into five series.

Series 1 is composed of the correspondence of Drs. Robert, Jordan and Duke during their work on their respective Universal Leaf projects. Arranged alphabetically by correspondent.

Series 2 consists of the manuscript drafts that became Tobacco Merchant, including the outlines, and materials used to compile acknowledgements, bibliographies, etc.

Series 3 contains the publications used for research purposes, subdivided into Series 3.1, those published by Universal Leaf; and Series 3.2, those published by other sources.

Series 4 is made up of research files compiled by Drs. Jordan and Duke, subdivided into Series 4.1, files on individuals; Series 4.2, on tobacco companies other than Universal Leaf (including independent tobacco firms subsidiary to ULTC); Series 4.3, on ULTC itself; Series 4.4, on the tobacco industry in general; and Series 4.5, miscellaneous research files. Each sub-series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series 5 contains the oral histories, subdivided into Series 5.1, the interview transcripts, and Series 5.2, the actual cassettes of interviews. Both are arranged alphabetically.

Series 2: Manuscript for Tobacco Merchant.

This series contains manuscript drafts for most of the chapters of what became Tobacco Merchant, as well as the outlines, appendices, acknowledgments, and bibliography. For a few of the chapters, several revisions are present, as Dr. Duke attempted to correct errors and incorporate suggestions from his ULTC sources. In some cases, the comments and suggestions are in the form of transcripts of interviews, while other are in the form of correspondence, or corrected drafts. Often, the chapter order was changed during revision; the order represented in this series is as close as possible to the order in which the chapters are arranged in the final edition of Tobacco Merchant.
