Alexander Storman was a prominent businessman and community leader on Long Island. As a licensed auctioneer he oversaw a variety of different types of auctions, including bankruptcy, liquidation, chattel mortgage, and assignee sales. The many auctions in which he was involved ran the gamut of everything  from ladies’ shoes to hunting and fishing equipment. 

The scrapbook, which spans the years 1948-1957, consists mainly of clippings of newspaper classified ads concerning various auctions at which Storman acted as auctioneer. Also included are a small number of newspaper articles regarding auctions in which he was involved.
