AC081_WILLIAM_E_ORGAIN_PAPERSDescriptive Sheet The William E. Orgain Papers AC -081 Inventory Available General Type: Records Physical Description: 1 cubic ft., 3 linear ft. Inclusive Dates: 1906-1965 Donor: Orgain, Bell, and Tucker This collection consists of a wide range of various documents, newspapers and miscellaneous items. There are a number of photographs that appear to be either related or unrelated to the collection. Enclosed are telegrams, brochures, maps, and transportation receipts. Much of the collection is duplicated and quiet erratic in form. William E. Orqain, one of the partners of the law firm Orqain, Bell and Tucker was one of the most prominent attorneys and leader in Beaumont's business and civic affairs. Mr. Orqain began his law practice in 1906. The collection appears to contain, in a detached fashion, a general contrast of Mr. Orgain's personal accumulations. The dates included are 1906 through 1965. There are census records, insurance papers, correspondence, directories and depositions. Most interesting in this collection is Mr. Orgain's interest in photographs, many being catastrophic in nature.
