Subseries 1. Correspondence, 1901-1925

Scope and Content Notes:

The Correspondence Subseries contains the incoming and outgoing letters documenting the business activities of the Cerro de Pasco Corporations. Many of the letters from the years 1902 to 1904 describe in detail the mining prospects, railway progress, employees, and travel to and from Cerro de Pasco. Many letters address business announcements of annual meetings or payments on stock. Other correspondence refers to environmental or political problems, such as the bubonic plague, yellow fever of 1904, the 1904 earthquake, and an outbreak of a regional war in 1915. Although much of the correspondence is written to Frick from the president of the companies J.B. Haggin, Frick was copied on a number of other letters concerning the individual companies. There is also correspondence concerning the death and settlement procedures of Frick’s estate relative to the Cerro de Pasco investment dating from 1920. At Frick’s death in 1919, his total investment in Cerro de Pasco was worth approximately $4,570,000 dollars. The materials in this subseries date from 1901 to 1925.
