Organizational History: In 1913, A.D. Whiddon and William Singletary purchased John Sanders &
Co., a dry good and farm supply store in Dothan, AL. They established
Singletary and Whiddon to provide those same goods to farmers of the Wiregrass.
In 1923, the store was located on the 132-140 block of South Foster Street,
Dothan. In 1936, the store became Singletary and Carmichael, owned by William
Singletary and his nephew Archie Carmichael. (Stepp, Wendell H., and Pamela A.
Stepp. Dothan: A Pictorial History. The Donning Company/Publishers,
Norfolk/Virginia Beach, 1984.)
Recently, the company has undergone name and ownership changes; it is now
Carmichael Electronics. In 1998, Larry Cable purchased the store from Archie
Carmichael, IV. The current owner, Steve Crisp, acquired the assets of
Carmichael Electronics from the bank in 2000 and renamed the business Wiregrass
Scope/Content: Collection documents the finances of Singletary & Whiddon as well as Singletary
& Carmichael, including: general account ledgers, fertilizer ledgers, accounts
receivable ledgers, purchase orders, and receipt books
Collection Organization: Organized into four series:
1. Daily Cash Journals – 21 journals, 1915 - 1951. Includes cash
balances and business transactions, showing date of transactions, names of
customers, quantities, costs and descriptions of merchandise purchased. Cash
journals reconciled the till.
2. General and Sub-Ledgers–
12 ledgers, 1916-1945. Three general account ledgers, 1916 – 1923. The general
account ledgers report balances for expenses, including: accounts for purchased
merchandise, freight and express accounts and account with First National Bank
of Dothan. This series contains two
types of sub-ledgers (extracts from the
general ledgers): Fertilizer Ledgers (7), 1916 – 1945 and Accounts Payable
Ledgers (2), 1919 - 1926. Because the state taxed fertilizer, the store kept
separate fertilizer ledgers that list customers’ names and postings of amounts
and prices of fertilizer sold. Also, the store extended credit to customers, so
it kept separate accounts payable ledgers that list customers’ names with
amounts they owed.
3. Receipts - Contains 3
items. One receipt books from 1946 – 1948, consisting of a copy of sale
receipts given to customers. Two purchase order books from 1943-1948 consisting
of copies of cash paid out for items purchased by store.
4. Miscellaneous – Contains
blank receipt book, blank insurance ledger, and ephemera.
All series are arranged chronologically
Provenance: Archie Carmichael, IV, donated collection to
William Holman, Executive Director of Dothan Landmark Foundation, Inc. Holman
donated the collection to The Wiregrass Archives.
Processing Notes: No original order, so The Wiregrass Archives staff divided the
collection into four series to facilitate access.
