Historical Note

Lamar Campbell LeCompte reputedly started in the wholesale postcard business in 1913, with a business initially located on Patton Avenue, Asheville. However, the 1914 to 1917 Asheville City Directories show LeCompte as a salesman for Smith's Drug Store, and the first entry for the Asheville Postcard Company is not until 1921 when J L Widman, was a business partner. In 1930, LeCompte moved the business to 31 Carolina Lane in Asheville, and soon the Asheville Postcard Company became the largest distributor of postcards, south of Washington, DC. LeCompte soon started to publish his own postcards, travelling around taking photographs of buildings and scenes that he thought would be of interest,and using a publisher to print the cards. LeCompte died in 1977, and the business was inherited by Ruth Thurmond (who donated the majority of the postcards in this collection to UNC Asheville) and Allen Hall, who had both worked with LeCompte for many years. They sold the business in 1978, when the inventory of Asheville Postcard Company was estimated to be several million cards.
