Biographical/Historical Note

The naval stores industry began in Georgia around 1875. Gum naval stores are produced in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and South Carolina. As of 1960, Georgia and Florida produce more than 90 percent of the gum naval stores. Depending upon the method of production, naval stores fall into two main classifications: gum and wood.

The term "naval stores" encompasses turpentine and rosin, as well as several of their derivatives. In the early days of the business in this country, people commonly referred to it as the turpentine business, because turpentine was the more important money product in those days. With the passing of wooden ships, the term "naval stores" no longer referred to products used in the construction of these vessels; today, rosin, turpentine, and more recently various specialty end products derived from these primary products are termed "naval stores" products.

The Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) was established on October 17, 1933, with the purpose of handling price-support, foreign-supply, and other programs. On July 1, 1939, it became a part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). CCC has been doing naval stores price support since 1933. They hold the stocks in reserve for world-wide distribution to fill the often occurring deficiencies between supply and demand.

Following the end of World War II, the USDA was reorganized, and the Production and Marketing Administration (PMA) was established on August 18, 1945, consolidating 12 existing agencies, including the CCC. PMA's function was to administer the department's production and marketing programs, which included agricultural conservation, production goals, marketing quotas, price support through loans, market research, service and regulatory activities, inspection and market news, marketing agreements, development of new and expanded markets and uses, encouragement of exports, surplus disposal, and other programs. This administration consisted of 9 commodity branches, which planned and administered or supervised the administration of all of PMA's programs affecting their commodities, and 11 functional or staff branches which were responsible for specific programs affecting all commodities. Naval stores became a division within the Tobacco commodity branch.

In 1953, the PMA was reorganized and renamed the Commodity Stabilization Service (CSS). Naval stores became a branch under the Tobacco division and was responsible for developing and administering naval stores activities, including domestic price support and production adjustment programs, preservation and storage programs, and defense activities. In May 1963, the CSS was abolished, and the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) took its place. The Producer Associations Division (PAD), a division of ASCS, handled price support to producers of tobacco, peanuts, naval stores, and tung oil through cooperative associations. This organizational change was designed to give increased attention to the operations of price support programs through cooperatives and to improve coordination between the Department and farmer cooperatives.

ATFA was founded in the 1930s by Judge Harvey Langdale, Sr., of Valdosta, Georgia, along with 900 other men in the turpentine industry from Southern states. As ATFA's 1st president, Langdale persuaded Congress that the production of naval stores was an agricultural, not an industrial, process. This declaration helped to steady a volatile market. ATFA's membership grew to approximately 4000 members by the 1960s. In addition to stabilizing the market, ATFA's stated purposes were to seek new uses for turpentine and rosin, see that its products were packaged attractively, and publicize the industry by holding an annual beauty contest in which women, dressed in costumes made of pine needles, compete for the title of Miss Gum Spirits of Turpentine. ATFA's headquarters were in Valdosta, Georgia.

Milton S. Briggs was one of the first employees of CCC and served for a time as Secretary of the Corporation, as well as the Assistant Director of the Special Commodities Branch, PMA; Chief of the Naval Stores Division, PMA; and Chief of the Naval Stores Branch, CSS, where he was occupied primarily with policy, over-all program planning, trade relationships and general supervision, including CCC loan and related activities of ATFA, through which the several programs are operated. In 1963, he was named Deputy Director of the Producer Associations Division, ASCS, where he administered tobacco, peanut, and naval stores price support programs. He received Certificates of Merit for his work 4 times. In 1957, he received from the Secretary of Agriculture a Superior Service Award, the second highest award bestowed by the USDA and one that may only be granted once in a lifetime to an individual. Briggs was seen as the top naval stores man in government until his retirement at the end of 1965.

In 1969, the ASCS was realigned, and the duties of the PAD were transferred to the newly established Oilseeds and Special Crops Division.


Scope and Content Note

This collection is comprised of materials from different sources. The bulk of the collection came from the files of various branches and divisions within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) dealing with naval stores and naval stores price support loans, including the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC); Naval Stores Division of the Tobacco Branch of the Production and Marketing Administration (PMA); and the Producer Associations Division of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS). Some materials also came from businesses involved in naval stores. Unfortunately, we do not know exactly the source of all the materials in the collection. The collection is arranged into 11 series: history; loan program; reports and studies; notes and correspondence; foreign naval stores; defense planning; financial papers; naval stores legislation; publications; photographs and film; and maps. Series 2, loan program, is divided into 3 subseries: Series 3, reports and studies, is divided into three subseries: market news reports; reports; and studies. Series 4, notes and correspondence, is divided into three subseries: reading files; inspection correspondence; and notes and correspondence. Series 5, foreign naval stores, is divided into three subseries: reports on foreign naval stores; A.V. Pound correspondence; and correspondence. Series 7, financial papers, is divided into three subseries: AFTA audit reports; correspondence; and ATFA expense reports and statements. Series 9, publications, is divided into two subseries: articles and news clippings; and other publications.

SERIES 2:: Loan program

This series consists of three subseries: 2.1, loan program files; 2.2., sales announcements; and 2.3, cooperative task force. It contains the files of the Naval Stores Division, PMA; Naval Stores Branch, CSS; and the Producer Associations Division, ASCS relating to the USDA's annual naval stores price support program. It is subdivided into three sub-series. The files are arranged chronologically by loan program year. Usually the program year corresponds to the actual year, but not always. Sales of turpentine and rosin from one program year could extend for several years after the program year. Efforts were made to keep individual program years together as much as possible, but this became very difficult when sales for different years were combined together. The 1960s are the most confusing. If you are looking for something with a specific date, though, you might want to check the years surrounding that date as well.



SUBSERIES 2.1:: Loan program files, 1934-1971

This subseries contains the files relating to the annual naval stores price support loans, beginning with the CCC loans in 1934. Although not every year is complete, the loan program files usually contain copies of the loan agreement and loan applications. Other files in this sub-series contain lists of producers eligible to receive loans, redemption announcements and reports, sales announcements, location of naval stores in storage, loss estimates, average gum prices, and lists of those producers barred from the loan program. Beginning in 1963 with the establishment of the PAD, there are warehouse files on those companies approved for storage and reports of work performed by the PAD. Many of these warehouse files contain blueprints or drawings of the companies' properties. For 1968 and 1969, in addition to the warehouse files, there are also reports of ATFA inspectors to these warehouse sites.

This subseries contains materials dealing with Sales Announcements A, B, BR1, and C, which cover the years 1965-1968. Since these sales announcements transcend a single year, they did not fit easily into the chronological scheme of sub-series A and so were separated into their own sub-series.

SERIES 3:: Reports and studies, 1921-1974

This series consists of three subseries: 3.1, Market News Reports; reports; and 3.3., studies.



SUBSERIES 3.1:: Market News Reports

This subseries contains Naval Stores Market News Reports, which were produced by the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. The Naval Stores Market News office was located in Savannah, Georgia, and it came into being in the 1950s. The urgent need for this service arose out of the malpractice of the Savannah Cotton and Naval Stores Exchange, which prior to the Market News Office was the only source of market prices. Following investigation by the Department of Justice, though, the Exchange was dissolved by Federal order. The service provided by the Naval Stores Market News Service remained the sole source of current, basic, and factual news and price information for the entire naval stores trade. Its creation was strongly favored by ATFA. Market news reports provide daily information on prices and trading activity. It is arranged chronologically.
