Abstract
John Wanamaker (1838-1922) was a well-known merchant, entrepreneur, and lifelong resident of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was active in the city's religious, political, and philanthropic areas, founded several Presbyterian churches and Sunday schools, and served as postmaster general under President Benjamin Harrison from 1889 to 1893. He opened his first Philadelphia clothing store, Oak Hall, with partner Nathan Brown in 1861, and founded John Wanamaker and Co. in 1869. In 1876, he opened "A New Kind of Store" known as the Grand Depot at Thirteenth and Market Streets. This store later became the flagship store, with satellite stores eventually established in central and southeastern Pennsylvania, as well as New Jersey, Delaware, and New York City. Wanamaker was at the forefront in many areas of retailing including merchandising, employee relations and advertising. His sons Thomas B. Wanamaker and L. Rodman Wanamaker were also active in the business. Thomas ran John Wanamaker and Co. in Philadelphia and Rodman took over the New York store operations in 1906. This rich and extensive collection, which is arranged into five series and spans over 150 years, details the history of Wanamaker's store in Philadelphia and its influence as a major city retailer during the 19th and 20th centuries. There is also material in the collection that documents Wanamaker's activities concerning social reform and cultural attitudes. The collection includes correspondence, financial volumes, scrapbooks, albums, estate and legal papers, store records, publications, photographs, financial files, sales portfolios, sound recordings, glass negatives, and deeds. Materials are generally arranged in chronological order; however, the loose photographs in Series Four are arranged by subject and size.

Biographical/Historical note

John Wanamaker was born on July 11, 1838 on the outskirts of Philadelphia. His parents were Nelson Wanamaker, a brickmaker of Scottish ancestry, and Elizabeth Kochersperger, of French Huguenot descent. He spent two years on an Indiana farm as a child but grew up mostly in Philadelphia, where he turned bricks at his father’s yard and worked as an errand or utility boy at various firms. From age sixteen to nineteen he worked as a salesman and a buyer at the clothing retailer Tower Hall, and then spent three years as secretary of the Philadelphia Y.M.C.A. In 1858 he founded Bethany Chapel in Philadelphia’s South Street district and served as superintendent there for three years.

In 1861, John Wanamaker and his brother-in-law, Nathan Brown, opened the clothing store Oak Hall a few doors west of Tower Hall. During the Civil War, the firm supplied clothing to the Union army. Nathan Brown died in 1868 and Wanamaker continued the store on his own. In 1869, he established John Wanamaker & Co. on Chestnut Street between Eighth and Ninth streets. Whereas Oak Hall was established to provide clothing for everyone, the original John Wanamaker & Co. was a luxury shop. In 1876, he opened “the Grand Depot,” Philadelphia’s first department store, on the site of a former Pennsylvania Railroad depot at Thirteenth and Market streets. John Wanamaker & Co. gradually expanded and became a regional chain with fifteen stores, including a New York City store, which Wanamaker purchased from A. T. Stewart in 1896.

In 1889 John Wanamaker was appointed to be the 38th postmaster general of the United States by President Harrison and served for four years. One of his innovations was rural free delivery, which was implemented after he left office. Free delivery was already available in the cities but in the rural areas people had to walk to the local post office for mail and often they would go without mail for weeks at a time.

John Wanamaker died in 1922, and his son Rodman succeeded him as head of the business, but died in 1928. The company did well and expanded over the next several decades, but went into decline during the 1960s and 1970s and was sold to Woodward & Lothrop in 1986. The Wanamaker building at Thirteenth and Market streets was registered with the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Scope and Contents note

The John Wanamaker collection includes correspondence, financial volumes, scrapbooks, albums, estate and legal papers, store records, publications, photographs, financial files, sales portfolios, sound recordings, glass negatives, and deeds. This rich and extensive collection is arranged into five series and spans over 150 years. It details the history of Wanamaker's store in Philadelphia and its influence as a major city retailer during the 19th and 20th centuries. There is also material that documents Wanamaker's activities concerning social reform and cultural attitudes. There is information on his work as postmaster general, including information on weather and why mail was not delivered, and on his religious and political activities. Materials are generally arranged in chronological order; however, the loose photographs in Series Four are arranged by subject and size.

Series One is composed of personal records from 1850-1986. This series contains loose correspondence, letterpress copy books, speeches, diaries, editorials, estate papers and biographer's papers. There are also scrapbooks and photograph albums pertaining to personal and family interests such as John Wanamaker's political career, Bethany Sunday School, Rodman Wanamaker's aviation and collecting activities, and memorial scrapbooks for both John and Rodman Wanamaker.

Also included are miscellaneous volumes from the loan collection of Rodman Wanamaker, ten large atlases of the Philadelphia area and Atlantic County, NJ from dating from 1883 to 1914, and several sound recordings.

Series Four is composed of prints and photographs from 1861-1980. This series consists primarily of photographic prints, both loose and in albums, many of which were taken by store photographers to document store operations and events. The following photographers are represented: D. Sargent Bell, Harry S. Hood, Richard T. Dooner, and Charles H. Miller. There are also glass plate negatives and lantern slides. The loose photographs are arranged into three topical groups.

Series Five, the addendum, is composed of material that was not included with the collection when it was originally donated to the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Some items are duplicates of previously cataloged papers. There are also miscellaneous photographs and cabinet cards, several boxes of correspondence and financial records from the Wanamaker Institute of Industries, copies of Wanamaker's newspaper editorials, miscellaneous prints, booklets, and other publications.

Series II. Store records 1861-1986 

Scope and Contents note

This series contain records of the Executive divisions of John Wanamaker Philadelphia and New York and the Sales Division of the flagship store. It also includes various store publications and several boxes of deeds.

records include meeting minutes of each of the boards of directors of the New York and Philadelphia stores; A. T. Stewart Realty company papers concerning the New York property; annual, quarterly, and monthly financial statements; store contracts and operations manuals; and store policy statements, memoranda, and surveys on merchandising. Additionally, there is late 19th to early 20th century correspondence and advertisements and samples of the store's trademarks. There are also papers documenting the establishment, renewal, cancellation and infringement of trademarks and copyright on Wanamaker products and advertising campaigns. Concerning these matters, there is a sizeable amount of correspondence between representatives of the New York and Philadelphia stores and their respective legal counsels. Also included in the executive division records are papers on John Wanamaker's involvement with the design, construction and installation of the Founder's Bell atop the Lincoln-Liberty Men's Store once located at Broad and Chestnut Streets, with Isaiah Williamson and the Williamson Free Trade School, and with the YMCA.

This group of records also contains several bound volumes, such as scrapbooks, sample books, account books, department profit ledgers, salary ledgers, and a visitor's register for the Philadelphia store. The scrapbooks contain historical store ephemera such as advertisements, flyers from store openings, store policies and notices, and material concerning the Wanamaker Athletic Award. The printer's sample books contain samples of plates illustrating store business and activities, as well as John and Rodman's personal interests.

The second group of records under this series is the records, which include materials relating to the store's Visual and Marketing departments. Art Department records include information on artists whose works were collected by John and Rodman Wanamaker, inventories of art displayed in the store and at Wanamaker residences, and material from the 1920s and 1930s on the Paris salons. Display Department records include correspondence, materials on exhibitions within the store, and Howard Kratz's files as department head. The Decorating Department's files consist primarily of budgetary papers. The Publicity Department records document advertising promotions and events planning, especially the store's annual Christmas displays and the 100th Anniversary celebration. There are also the files of Reeves Wetherill, vice president for public relations from 1960 to 1987, which contain information on the John Wanamaker Athletic Association, the store's 100th Anniversary event, and various celebrity in-store appearances.

The section of this series includes product catalogs, children's story booklets, employee manuals, and exhibition catalogs published by Wanamaker's. It also contains programs (some pertaining to the Wanamaker-Millrose games), songbooks, store guides (for both the New York and Philadelphia stores), store newspapers, and newsletters such as the employee newsletter entitled "The Eagle Speaks." Additionally, in this section are John Wanamaker's personally published diaries, which he began producing yearly in 1900. In addition to blank, dated pages for daily writing, these books contained printed store advertisements and columns similar to those found in farmer's almanacs (useful lists, recipes, anecdotes, etc.) The majority of the diaries in this section were acquired by the store as part of an effort to archive the store's history and activities. Encouraged by this notion, many Wanamaker patrons sent in their own copies of the diary; thus many of these diaries contain personal stories not necessarily related to Wanamaker's. There are also nineteen volumes of Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware newspaper advertisements for Wanamaker's merchandise.

At the end of this series are twenty-three boxes of deeds to Wanamaker Store properties, other business properties, Wanamaker residential properties, and miscellaneous properties in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Kentucky, Virginia, New York, Washington, D.C., and Illinois.

Series IV. Prints and photographs 1861-1980 

Scope and Contents note

This series consists primarily of photographs, both loose and in albums, many of which were taken by store photographers to document store operations and events. The following photographers are represented: D. Sargent Bell, Harry S. Hood, Richard T. Dooner, and Charles H. Miller. There are also glass plate negatives and lantern slides.

The loose photographs are arranged into three topical groups: "people", "buildings," and "other subjects." There are then further divided by size into small, medium, and large photographs. The "people" section contains images of John Wanamaker and Wanamaker family members, store personnel, and other non-Wanamaker related persons. The "buildings" section documents interior and exterior views of all Wanamaker stores, as well as store displays and store events. Notably, this section contains images of various Christmas, Easter, and patriotic-themed displays. The "other subjects" section consists of images of various Wanamaker-related organizations, such as the John Wanamaker Commercial Institute (both in the store and at their summer camp in Island Heights, New Jersey) and the American Legion John Wanamaker post. Additional photographs include those of Meadowbrook and other sports teams, the Salvation Army, family residences, Wanamaker Memorial sites (such as the Free Library Wanamaker Branch, the Friendly Inn, and Bethany Church), and Wanamaker art and flag collections.

Other material in this series includes albums created by display department head Howard Kratz to document store decorations for each holiday season from 1921 to 1931. There are chronologically arranged photographs of Reeves Wetherill with celebrities at store public relations events. There is also an album of images that recorded the construction of the flagship store in Philadelphia at 13th and Market Streets in 1904.
