Logging in the Adirondacks constituted a sizable portion of the American lumber trade even after the creation of the Adirondack pack in 1895, with companies being able to harvest timber only in very limited quantities from designated zones. Titus Meigs founded the Santa Clara Logging Company in 1888. Ferris Jacob Meig succeeded his father as president in 1911, and operated the company until it went out of business in 1941. Ferris Meigs took numerous photographs documenting the activities of the Santa Clara Logging Company.
