The Zachary & Zachary Artistic Wood Mantels letters contains three letters written to Burlington, North Carolina, businessman J. W. Cates (1847 - 1918). In the first letter, written on Zachary & Zachary letterhead, one of Cates' children writes about his future plans. The other two letters are written by Zachary & Zachary secretary and treasurer A. D. Zachary. In these letters, Zachary urges Cates to do business with the Peck-Hammond Company, and recommends staying away from the Moncrief Carter Furnace Company.
Established by Arthur D. Zachary and his father H. C. Zachary in 1894, Zachary & Zachary began as a contracting and supply business with branches in Raleigh and Wilmington, North Carolina. The company's portfolio included several buildings on the University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill, including Alumni Hall and the Carr Building.
It appears that around the turn of the twentieth century, the Zacharys decided to move away from contracting and expand their building supply buisness. The three letters in this collection are written on Zachary & Zachary Artistic Mantels letterhead, indicating that the company was no longer focused on contracting at that time.
