Biographical/Historical Note
Joseph C. "Joe" Wilson (December 19, 1909-November 22, 1971) was born and raised in Rochester and developed Xerox Corporation into a hugely successful international enterprise, the profitability of which transformed both the City of Rochester and the University of Rochester. Wilson graduated from West High School in 1927 and was a member of the University of Rochester's class of 1931, the first to graduate from the newly built River Campus. He then attended Harvard Business School, where he graduated in 1933 before returning to join the family business, Haloid Company, which manufactured photographic paper. By 1946, Wilson was president and general manager of Haloid, which would become the Xerox Corporation in 1960. Under his leadership, Haloid purchased the rights to the reprographic process invented by Chester Carlson known as xerography. It would take over a decade to develop it into the 914 photocopier which was launched in 1959. The product revolutionized the way business was done around the world.

Wilson believed in the interrelated nature of business and community. Thus, he was involved in many community, business, and charitable organizations. He became a trustee of the University of Rochester in 1949, eventually becoming Chair of the Board of Trustees in 1959. He was also president of the Community Chest (now known as the United Way), a position which had also been held by Eastman Kodak founder George Eastman. Wilson died suddenly of a heart attack on November 22, 1971 while having lunch with New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller.

Personal taxes and expenses, 1934-1974
This series contains three parts: cash books, tax materials, and Comac Builders. Wilson tracked his monthly income and expenses in ledger books for each year 1964-1971. The front of each book consists of a month-by-month summary of income and expense categories as well as cash net lost or gained. The rest of the cash book includes detailed itemizations, for example, the summary page at the front lists the total expenses of his house on Clover Road while the expanded section on the house details its expenses, including cleaning, landscaping, and an allowance for Marie C. Wilson. The cash books demonstrate the complexity of his personal finances, which included memberships in upwards of forty social clubs, several houses, a construction business, and constant management of his stocks and tax position. The bulk of this series relates to Wilson's tax filings 1934-1971. These materials pertain to tax planning as well as forms and returns; Wilson was careful to manage sale of his Xerox stocks in ways that minimized his tax liability as well as any reduction in the share price. There are also materials relating to the Joseph C. and Marie C. Wilson Foundation and assets of Wilson family members who held Xerox stocks. A 1972 affidavit given by Wilson's accountant Faye Brower is useful in understanding Wilson's personal finances, as she gives a view of his fiscal history and philosophy. Finally, the series ends with material relating to Wilson's construction supply company, Comac Builders, which includes various reports on appraisals and insurance. Extent is 3.34 linear feet (10 boxes).
