Series 75: Invoice Department. NABUC purchases, 1936-1942; 1947-1952


Scope and Contents

Series 75 consists of contract books containing a record of the sale of Cuban sugars by the Cuban Trading Company and the Latin American Trading Company to the Czarnikow-Rionda Company. (NABUC is Cuban spelled backwards and was a code term for the Cuban Trading Company.) Each volume contains an index linking each contract to a sugar mill or another purchasing agent and another index linking each contract to either the United States or foreign quota. There are actually two contracts for each transaction. The first contract, between the mill and the Cuban Trading Company or the Latin American Trading Company, gives the brand mark, price, number of bags and exit port for the purchased sugar. The second contract, between one of the two companies and Czarnikow-Rionda, contains essentially the same information. Cable messages related to a contract are sometimes attached to the contracts. F.O.B. contracts were suspended during World War II hence the gap in the series.
