Editorial and research files of Dr. William S. Coker, editor of The Papers of Panton, Leslie & Company. Includes an extensive body of correspondence, business papers, court records, and other documents relating to the British firm and its successors, John Leslie and Company and John Forbes and Company (1739-1847), which under a monopoly granted by the Spanish government, engaged in an extensive Indian trade throughout the Old Southwest and continued under British and American governance. Papers touch on virtually every aspect of frontier life in Spanish and British Florida and adjacent states. In addition to records of the company, the collection includes exhaustive documentation from other sources, historical publications, and writings (1900-1987) about the company, its massive trading empire in the Southeast U.S., and company trading posts throughout present-day Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida, and operations in Tennessee, South Carolina, Cuba, the Bahamas, and London.
