Summary
  • "This is the journal of Duncan McDougall, supervising partner of the Pacific Fur Company at Astoria. It records the daily operations at the post and in the Oregon country from the ship Tonquin's arrival on the Columbia until the sale of the post and the company assets to the North West Fur Company in November 1813"--Jacket
  • "Like much of the economic history of the United States during the early republic, this document is closely associated with John Jacob Astor. An immigrant from Germany in 1763, the ambitious youth set out to forge new territory in the fur trade and, with his 1808 charter for the American Fur Company, created a monopoly in the fur trade, practically eliminating competition with Canada and Britain. In 1810, Astor organized the Pacific Fur Company with Duncan McDougall as one of its partners. Later that year, McDougall set out with a crew on the ship Tonquin toward Vancouver Island as part of Astor's three-pronged effort to infiltrate the northwest coast. McDougall was the supervisor of the post during the years 1811-1813
  • Thus, his log is the most accurate account of the daily activity of the trading post."--Jacket
