Milwaukee Road Collection


The Milwaukee Road Archives digital collection represents the start of the process of making available online indexes and finding aids from the Archives available to the public. In the initial stage, the digital collection includes indexes to the small selection of employee records that are part of the Archives.

Milwaukee Public Library was designated as the official archives of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad in 1981, when documents were first received from the Railroad. Additional material was received in 1985, after the CMStP&P was incorporated into the Soo Line Railroad. The collection includes corporate records, photographs, drawings and a small selection of employee records.

The Milwaukee Road Archives is not available for browsing. Beginning in 2010, the Archives will begin making available online indexes and finding aids which will help researchers, historians, hobbyists and family genealogists.

Access to the Milwaukee Road Archives materials described in this online collection may be arranged by contacting the Frank P. Zeidler Humanities Room at (414) 286-3061.
