Kratz, Edwin A. Business Records, 1875-1901
Collection identifier: 978
Extent: 2.0 volumes
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains two account books (1875-81 and 1875-1901) kept intermittently by Edwin A. Kratz (1844-1931) of Champaign, Ill. In the city directories of the period, Kratz is listed as a physician, but these records, and a small file of miscellaneous papers, relate to his income and expenses in renting his properties and in administering estates. E. G. Kratz gave the collection to the Library in 1940.
