Abstract
A wealth of historical data are peppered throughout innumerable personal letters, diaries, and ledgers of the individuals who owned and operated mining and fertilizer companies. In conjunction with archaeological data from phosphate mills, these historical sources can provide invaluable evidence on industrialization and economic history in the late nineteenth century South.
