Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul Railway Company Collection

  • MA 033
  • Collection
  • 1913-1918

This collection originated from the Madison, S.D. Railway Depot and was then donated to Prairie Village of Madison.

The collection provides a variety of different communications and report information, and is an excellent source to view original documentation. However, the collection is not a complete record of all communications and so is not an effective source for researching specific transactions, etc. It is organized into folders each containing a different form of communication used by the railroad company. The beginning of the collection contains all photocopied material. The middle of the collection contains the encapsulated material, and the end of the collection contains the samples of original records.

Because this collection was damaged in a fire all records received were photocopied with only a few original samples retained from each category of the collection. Some unique samples were encapsulated for easier handling and display.
