[Identification of Item], The Wampler Business Records Collection, 1918-1972, SC# 5024, Special Collections, Carrier Library, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Va.

Acquisition Information:

Donated by Barbara W. Melby and Lawrence D. Bowers in May of 2009.

Provenance:

The bulk of this collection came from the Wampler family’s Sunny Slope Farm Property.  In 2009, James Madison University History Professor Daniel Kerr was in communication with Barbara Melby who occupied the Sunny Slope property at that time.  Mrs. Melby identified the storage of documents within the barn.  After an initial inspection of the material, arrangements to transfer the material to Special Collections for cleaning, rehousing, and processing were made.

Biographical/Historical Note:

The Wampler family emerged upon the American poultry industry in the early twentieth century changing the industry practices and beliefs.  As a result of their success, the Wamplers became one of the most influential families in Rockingham County, Virginia and helped the Shenandoah Valley garner the moniker, "Turkey Capital of the Nation.”  In 1811, John Wampler and family, members of the Brethren Church, moved from Pennsylvania to the Timberville area of the county during a period when large groups of Brethren were migrating south.  During the Civil War, John Wampler III gained notoriety for supposedly thwarting Union General Philip Sheridan’s attempt to burn his family’s barn.  After the war, in 1871, John Wampler III purchased a farm in Dayton that he named Sunny Slope and built a house there.  Under the setting of Sunny Slope, John Wampler III’s children and grandchildren made their many significant contributions to agriculture.

Charles W. Wampler, third son of John Wampler III born in 1886, took quickly to the agricultural development of the County.  He became a County Agricultural Agent and was an accomplished livestock farmer raising chickens and cattle.  Eventually, he settled into turkey farming and started Rockingham County’s first turkey hatchery.  It was during this time that he became known as the “Father of the Modern Turkey Industry” because of his success in various agricultural experiments that changed the face of modern turkey farming.  One of his earliest experiments was using chicken incubators to hatch turkey eggs.  Starting with only ninety eggs, Wampler Sr. was able to hatch fifty-two poults.  Another Charles Wampler Sr. innovation all but ended the wide spread practice of free-range turkey farming in commercial operations.  Wampler Sr. believed, and was able to show, that free-range turkeys were less cost effective to raise as they expended more energy and required more feed at the expense of the farmer.  Wampler practiced “incubation and confinement” which soon became the standard among successful poultry growers. 

Charles Wampler Sr. also served as the first Rockingham County Extension Agent and founded the Wampler Feed and Seed Company in 1927 with two of his brothers.  The company mixed feed for distribution to livestock and turkeys.  Wampler Feed and Seed was the first in the nation to contract with farms to grow poultry.  Wampler also helped found the National Turkey Federation.  Among his many philanthropic activities, Charles Wampler Sr. served on the Board of Trustees for Bridgewater College, on the Board of Visitors for Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and on the Board of Directors for the Children’s Home Society of Virginia.

Charles Wampler Jr. was born at Sunny Slope on November 25th 1915 as one of 9 children (six daughters and three sons.) He attended Bridgewater College for two years and Rutgers University for one year. His early indoctrination in the poultry business began at the age of seven when he and a sister, with the aid of their mother, prepared feed for turkeys in the family business.  Crushed eggs and oatmeal were the two main components of the feed.  In 1936, his career officially began as a “field man” for Wampler Feed and Seed--traveling to various growers and inspecting livestock.  Eventually,  Charles Jr. became the company’s general manager when Charles Sr. retired.  In 1969, Wampler hatcheries, feed mills, and grower operations joined with Virginia Valley Processing to become Wampler Food Incorporated.  Poultry processing, hatcheries, and growers were combined as a single corporation with Charles Wampler Jr.  as president.  In 1984, Charles Jr. oversaw the merger between Wampler Foods and Longacre Farms out of Franconia Pennsylvania.  By 1986, Wampler-Longacre acquired the Rockingham Poultry Cooperative and formed WLR Foods Incorporated with Charles Jr. as chairman of the board.

In addition to his business career, Charles Wampler Jr. had an equally distinguished career in service.  Charles Jr. was a District Representative for Rockingham County in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1954 until 1965 serving on several committees including Agriculture, Finance, and Labor.  In 1957, he co-founded the United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.  From 1971 to 1984, Charles Jr. served as president and chairman of the board for the Rockingham Memorial Hospital.  He has also served on James Madison University’s Board of Visitors and the Rockingham County School Board.  In 1990, he received James Madison University’s Common Wealth award in recognition of outstanding contributions to the community.  In addition, Charles Wampler Jr. was a member of the Church of the Brethren in Harrisonburg.

Scope and Content:

The Wampler Family Business Records, 1918-1972, consists of 12.3 linear feet of material documenting Wampler Foods Incorporated.  The collection features personal and business correspondence of Charles Wampler Jr. and Charles Wampler Sr. and includes bound ledgers, financial documents, print material, reports, memoranda, and pictures.  The collection is arranged chronologically by topic in eleven series.  Series include: Administrative Files, Correspondence, Date Books, Farm Ledgers, Financial Papers, Philanthropy and Professional Organizations, Photographs, Press and Advertising Files, Print and Ephemera, and Reports and Studies.

 

Series I, Administrative Files, 1937-1972, includes a diverse assortment of administrative documents representing the business’ large-scale farming operations. Insurance information and documents represent a large portion of the series regarding farm capital and employees. Another large section of the series is “testing documentation” for the various animals owned and bred by the Wamplers such as chickens, turkey, cows, and sheep. Nearly all of these animals required regular government-regulated testing, and the corresponding findings and results are within this series.

 

Series II, Correspondence, 1918-1971, consists of letters ranging in date from 1918 to 1972. Early correspondence to and from Charles Wampler Sr. in regard to his turkey business and his position as County Farm Agent may be found here. Through the 1940’s, the letters concern both agricultural and World War II topics as the Wampler businesses supported the American war effort through food production.  Intermixed throughout this range are letters regarding both the financial and agricultural support Charles Wampler Jr. provided to colleges and universities through his service on their Boards of Visitors. Letters written during his terms as State representative can be found in the 1950’s and 1960’s with some addressed to Virginia Governors and the notable Virginia politician, Harry F. Byrd.

 

Series III, Date Books, 1939-1965, consist of date books signed by Charles W. Wampler Jr. which include personal appointments, business schedules, and notes on farm production.

 

Series IV, Farm Ledgers, 1932-1951, contains information on the day-to-day operations of the Wampler properties.  Some ledgers specify: Ralston Farm, Dry River, Sunny Slope Farm, Glendale Farm, and Blossom Farm.  Other ledgers do not specify property names but do contain information such as expenses, account information, flock details, and livestock weights. Items are arranged chronologically.

Series V, Financial Papers, 1941-1971, houses all loose-paper financial documents relating to the Wampler businesses. The majority of the series consists of receipts from shipping, Wampler Feed & Seed, Sunny Slope Farm, travel expenses, and general purchases while the second part of the series contains miscellaneous bank statements, account information, tax documents for state and federal income, business taxes, and some Wampler family business documents.

Series VI, Philanthropic and Professional Organizations, 1939-1971, consists of memoranda, meeting minutes, summaries, and administrative information for various organizations with which Charles Wampler Sr. and Jr. were involved. The series is arranged alphabetically under Local and National subseries, of which agricultural organizations figure prominently.  See also Series X: Reports and Studies for philanthropic reports relating to the Bridgewater College Board of Trustees, Virginia Tech Board of Visitors and Children’s Home Society of Virginia.

 

Series VII, Photographs, 1947-1962, contains documentary livestock pictures from the Wampler Farms and from farmers across the country with letters attached regarding breeding opportunities and purchase requests. Several personal photographs of the Wampler children are included here.

 

Series VIII, Press and Advertising Files, 1920-1963, consist of marketing materials for the Wampler businesses that includes poultry advertisements and newspaper clippings. Because Charles Wampler Jr. was a respected community member and recognized authority in the poultry industry, the collection also includes speeches, articles, and press releases authored by or about Charles Wampler Jr.

 

Series IX, Print and Ephemera, 1929-1971, includes agricultural publications such as “Turkey World.” This series also includes biographical information on Charles Wampler Jr. from magazines, newspapers, and farm sale books from auctions held on his properties. A number of printed brochures from various manufacturers and charitable organizations also reside this series.

 

Series X, Reports and Studies, 1927-1969, holds typed or printed reports in two subseries: Agriculture and Other.  Agricultural materials from the U.S. Farm Bureau, National Turkey Federation, the U.S.D.A., and the Virginia and Pennsylvania Departments of Agriculture which include livestock disease reports, castor bean testing data, poultry stock reports, and inspection and market information.  In addition, legislation related to agricultural issues is also represented.  Other materials include: reports regarding educational and charitable organizations in which Charles Wampler had a philanthropic interest (such as Bridgewater College, Virginia Tech, and Children’s Home Society of Virginia); 1954 legislative Actions; War savings and Fund Campaigns; Senatorial Remarks; House of Representative Committee rules; and Virginia State Legislation and sub-committee reports.

Series XI: Business and Organization lists, 1941-1967,

The collection is arranged chronologically by topic in the following ten series:
