Historical NoteReturn to Top

The first survey for a northern route to the Pacific was conducted by the War Department in 1853. The Northern Pacific Railroad Company was organized in 1864 with Josiah Perman as president. Construction began at Carlton, Minnesota, in February 1870, with an initial operation of 125 miles. That same year, construction began at Kalama, Washington Territory, near Portland, Oregon, and that line was extended to New Tacoma, Washington Territory, by 1873. The company was reorganized in the wake of financial troubles in 1875. The western and eastern lines joined at Gold Creek, Montana, in 1883. The real completion date was 1888 when the tunnel through Stampede Pass, Washington, was opened, replacing a switchback line over that pass. The company was reorganized for a second time in 1896 as the Northern Pacific Railway Company.

The company’s lines were organized into divisions. According to the 1881 annual report, the divisions were as follows:

Wisconsin Division: Brainerd, Minnesota to Dulluth, Minnesota

Minnesota Division: Minnesota/North Dakota border to Great Lakes

Dakota Division: Bismarck, North Dakota to North Dakota/Minnesota border

Missouri Division: Bismarck, North Dakota to Miles City, Montana

Yellowstone Division: Miles City, Montana to Livingston, Montana

Rocky Mountain Division: Livingston, Montana to Missoula, Montana

Clark’s Fork Division: Missoula, Montana to Montana/Idaho border

Pend D’Oreille Division: Montana/Idaho border to Ainsworth, Washington

Cascade Division: Ainsworth, Washington to Tacoma, Washington

Pacific Division: Tacoma, Washington to Portland, Oregon

The geographic boundaries of divisions changed over time. They were originally based on the distance an engine could go before it needed service and fuel, a distance that became greater with changes in engine technology.

Under its charter, the Northern Pacific could not build branch lines to feed into the main line. In order to meet its needs for feeder lines and other cooperative transportation ventures, the main company formed separate corporations to construct connecting lines. These small rail and other transportation lines were then sold to the parent company, which under its charter was able to acquire previously constructed lines.

The Astoria and Columbia River Railroad Company was incorporated on April 4, 1895. It operated between Seaside and Goble, Oregon, from May 1898 to March 1911. Its predecessor was the Seashore Railroad Company. By 1909 it was an operating subsidiary of the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway Company until the two companies merged in 1911.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection includes both bound and unbound correspondence, construction and expense reports, financial ledgers, right-of-way descriptions and maps, activity logs, publicity materials (including photographs and film reels), and personnel records created by employees of the Northern Pacific Railway Company and its subsidiary lines between the years 1870 and 1968--though materials are predominantly from the late 1880s through the early 1940s.

The Northern Pacific Railway Records present an extensive and detailed resource for researching railroad corporate management structures, land ownership histories for railroad associated properties (particularly in North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, and Washington state), economic impacts created by railroad construction and repair, corporate investment into raw material production for cheap construction supplies (particularly timber), and NPRR marketing strategies spanning a period of dramatic social and economic change in the American West. Correspondence records in this collection provide significant insights into prevailing railroad management structures during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries--when the rail industry dominated the social, economic, and political realms of rural American life. As was common during the time period, NPRR field operation managers were required to be technical experts as well as administrators. The records generated and/or compiled by the railroad's engineering staff reveal this complex balance of designing construction projects, scheduling traffic flows, and managing day-to-day operations. Rights-of-way documents, property maps, and construction drawings form a uniquely valuable resource for researching individual real estate histories and large-scale settlement patterns. The financial records in this collection provide detailed accounts of occupations and pay schedules for railroad personnel, the corporation's purchases of construction materials and sundry supplies (often specific to individual stations), and freight volumes carried from the region to national markets. The NPRR promotional department records in this collection preserve sometimes overt and often subtle techniques intended to both create and reinforce the railroad's preferred images of life in the Rocky Mountain West and Pacific Northwest. These promotional materials form a particularly interesting body of evidence for comparison and contrast with perceptions presented by contemporary regional literatures as well as the department's focus on highlighting agricultural abundance during periods of drought and farm foreclosures.

Materials in this collection were predominantly generated or compiled by engineering and promotions personnel. For the most part, engineering department recording procedures are consistent; however, the materials in sub-group 2 were generated by subsidiary and associated rail lines that reflect widely varrying recording policies and project goals. Additionally, NPRR engineers tended to move frequently, causing some degree of discontinuity.

Detailed Description of the CollectionReturn to Top

Subgroup 1:  Engineering Department, 1870-1968Return to Top

165.25 linear feet and 14 oversize volumes

This subgroup contains materials generated by employees of the Engineering Department of the Northern Pacific Railway's primary rail lines. Series III through XX contain records generated by the geographic divisions the railway established for hierarchial management (largely defined by state borders and more localized spurs). Series I and II contain records related to constructing and managing the primary lines spanning these geographic divisions. Materials primarily consist of records generated or compiled by NPRR Engineering Department managers (usually identified as "chief engineer," "assistant engineer," or "engineer in charge") regarding property acquistions, construction projects, repair work, station activities, line traffic, production numbers from subsidiary operations, and general management.

These materials provide significant primary resources for examining railroad corporate management structures, land ownership histories for properties associated with the main railroad lines and spurs, regional and localized economic impacts created by railroad construction and repair, and cycles of railroad investment into timber harvesting as a source for cheap construction materials. Information in this series is primarily presented through general correspondence, bound financial ledgers, compiled tracking reports and narrative summaries, blue print diagrams and maps, and day books maintained by unidentified railroad staff. Throughout this subgroup the phrase "Force Reports" in folder titles refers to reports filed by line engineers regarding actual and projected personnel hours (work force) for construction and repair projects.

Container(s)DescriptionDates
Series I: Main Line General
22 linear feet and 3 oversize volumes
This series includes materials related to constructing and managing the NPRR's primary rail line, with particular attention to the Montana and Idaho legs. This series is further divided into nine subseries highlighting some of the most intensive construction projects--such as line changes, tunnels, and re-gradings. Construction planning correspondence, cost estimates, material requisitions, progress summaries, work force reports, billing records, rights-of-way documents, and design diagrams predominate the series. These materials form an extensive record of the railroad's contributions to and impacts upon the region over nearly 100 years. Construction records provide detailed accounts of local and imported supplies, work force numbers and pay schedules, large- and small-scale landscape transformations, and land ownership patterns. This series also contains a few daily logs of station activities and line traffic, providing insights into the railroad's role within rural communities. Additionally, the series includes several folders of collected speeches and writings. None of the speeches in this series are attributed to an author and they appear to be intended for delivery to local civic groups. Most speeches are accompanied by newspaper articles and pamphlets--apparently research sources. The speeches and writings sequence includes a few brief histories of the Northern Pacific line and the communities along its routes. These histories are written from the perspective of the Northern Pacific (such that the history of a place tends to begin when the railroad arrived) and appear to be intended as light reading for passengers on cross-country trips. The speeches and writings sequence also includes foreign language promotional materials--mostly Eastern European languages--promoting the agricutlural abundance of lands along the rail line.

Series II: Second Main Line
33 linear feet
This series includes materials related to constructing and managing the NPRR's second main rail line. As with Series I, materials in this series exhibit particular attention to the Montana leg of the line; however, they also include records from the Minnesota and Washington state legs. This series is further divided into five subseries--the largest of which details construction projects and traffic reports for the leg between Garrison and Missoula, Montana. Survey records, construction planning correspondence, cost estimates, material requisitions, progress summaries, work force reports, billing records, rights-of-way documents, and design diagrams predominate the series. Construction records detail local and imported supplies as well as work force numbers and pay schedules. Correspondence records provide insights into the challenges engineers faced in designing multiple river crossings due to narrow canyons, procedures and rationales for subcontracting work projects, and long-term operations problems (such as derailments and mud/rock slides). Subseries 2, regarding the Garrison to Missoula leg, includes a notable sequence of correspondence, encroachment agreements, and construction designs intended to mitigate the proximity of Northern Pacific Railroad and Milwaukee Railroad lines through narrow stretches of the Clark Fork River valley, particularly near Bearmouth and Clinton, Montana.

Series IV: Idaho Division (Montana/Idaho)
1.0 linear feet
This series includes bound correspondence and financial records generated by the Chief Engineers of the Idaho Division of the Northern Pacific. Financial records include detailed reports regarding contruction material costs, production numbers from the Ellisport (Idaho) lumber mill, passenger manifests, and station activities--particularly from Wallace, Idaho. These latter records evidence the economic prominence of Wallace in the Idaho panhandle prior to the devasting forest fires of 1910 that burned much of the town and transformed the region's economic patterns.

Series V: Clarks Fork and Pend d’Oreille Division (Montana/Idaho)
3.5 linear feet
This series consists of correspondence and financial records generated by the Clarks Fork and Pend d’Oreille Division, operating in western Montana and northern Idaho. Correspondence materials primarily describe line repair projects and traffic summaries. Financial records primarily detail production numbers and shipments (incoming and outgoing) for the NPRR's lumber yard in Hope, Idaho. Processed lumber from this yard was a significant source for the railroad's construction projects throughout the region. The absence of records after 1910 may reflect the impact of the 1910 forest fires that heavily impacted the region.

Series VI: Missoula Division (Montana/Idaho)
6.0 linear feet
This series consists of correspondence, financial, and personnel records generated by the Missoula Division, operating in western Montana and northern Idaho. Correspondence materials primarily describe line construction and repair projects as well as traffic summaries. Construction records (both correspondence and financial journals) detail local and imported supplies as well as project progress reports. Personnel records in this series provide insights into the buying habits of railroad employees who used payroll vouchers to purchase goods from the company (stations and dining cars). In addition, this series includes a file detailing next-of-kin information for employees at the Drummond, Montana, station and may serve as a valuable resource for geneological studies and local history surveys.

Series IX: Rocky Mountain Division (Montana/Idaho)
25.0 linear feet
This series consists of correspondence, financial, personnel, and construction records generated by the Rocky Mountain Division of the NPRR line. The Rocky Mountain Division spanned most of Montana and this series includes several distinct and extensive sequences of materials documenting construction projects, management of multiple branch lines, construction blueprints, internal and outgoing correspondence, and station histories. Construction records (both correspondence and financial journals) detail local and imported supplies as well as project progress reports. Many contruction records in this series also include blueprint details for site preparation and design. Branch lines records include Boulder, Bozeman, Camp Creek, Couer d'Alene, Phillipsburg, Red Bluff, and Ruby Valley. This series contains extensive blueprints for the branch lines listed above. In addition to the branch line sequences, this series includes extensive records regarding redesign and repair of the Missoula to Garrison leg. Internal correspondence records address construction projects, company policies, and aquisition procedures. Outgoing correspondence records predominantly detail rights-of-way inquiries, land acquisition negotiations, grazing leases for railroad properties, and frieght negotiations with clients. This sequence (organized by the community or rail line closest to the recipient) presents extensive documentation of land ownership patterns, grazing patterns, and agricultural production numbers. Often clients compiled several years of production numbers into a single report to bolster their requests for frieght rate adjustments. Station and changing yard reports provide detailed historical and contemporary accounts of design intentions, community contributions, renovation projects, cycles of traffic volume and spur connections, prominent managers, colorful characters associated with the stations, and generally how the stations fit wihin the context of the larger community. In addition, financial and personnel records in this series lend insights into the menus offered by station cafeterias, dining cars, and work camp cooks.

Series XII: Cascade Division (Oregon/Washington)
7.5 linear feet and 3 oversize volumes
This series contains bound volumes of outgoing correspondence and financial records from the Cascade Division of the Northern Pacific Railway, which operated from south-central British Columbia through eastern Washington to western Idaho. Financial records include ledgers, journals, and other materials that document activities at the Ainsworth Lumber Mill and construction projects for bridges to Ainsworth, Washington, from Kennewick to Pasco, Washington, and over the Snake River. The Ainsworth Mill apparently produced large quanities of timber used for NPRR construction projects but also marketed to other industrial builders.

Series XVI: Western Division (Oregon/Washington)
4.0 linear feet and 1 oversize volume
This series contains general correspondence, financial, and personnel records generated by the Western Division of the NPRR, operating in western and central Washington state. Most records in this series concern construction and maintenance projects, providing extensive details about instrumentation, materials used, work force needs, and station operations. Intensive projects documented in this series include the Hoquiam extension near Tacoma, various coal bunkers in central Washington, and reconstruction of the "Georgie Oaks" steamboat on the Columbia River. This series also includes extensive documentation of negotiations with subcontractors and unaffiliated rail lines. Most materials in this series were generated by the Tacoma Branch; however, other units are represented (such as the Clealum, Centralia, Columbia River, and Eagle Gorge branches).

Series XXII: Photographs
2.0 linear feet and 1 oversize box
This series contains photographs intended as a documentary record for railway operations--such as construction projects, railroad facilities, engines, and work conditions--though some promotional photographs are present as well. Photographs in this series constitute a valuable resource documenting landscapes, towns, community events, rural life, work crews, rail infrastructures, and weather events throughout the high plains and montane valleys of the central and western United States--as well as spanning eighty years of dramatic physical, economic, and social change. Materials in this series exhibit several distinct sequences of image themes. Among these are extensive Montana bridge, station, and change yard sequences (often identified by location or structural number but seldom both). Billings, Bozeman, Brockway, Circle, Glendive, Lindsay, and Missoula, Montana--and their respective outlying areas--are among the communities most significantly documented by the images in this series. Another extensive image sequence documents the possessions, staple crops, and vistas of Mission Valley (Montana) homestead families during the late 1920s. The Mission Valley photographs were captured for promotional purposes, as opposed to the construction and facility images that dominate this series. Another promotional image sequence includes produce being carried to market. These promotional photographs were primarily intended to convey perceptions of abundance and help the railroad sell rail accessible farm plots. The majority of materials in this series are identified and described individually, with reference to location and date whenever such information could be established; however, the series also includes some grouped photographs recovered from a separated collection. Photographs individually identified and described during original processing were assigned identification numbers according to the year and order in which they were processed. During reprocessing all these photographs were assigned new reference numbers to reflect their relationship within the larger collection--regardless of year--though the original numbers are noted in brackets for cross-reference. Photographs in boxes 396, 397, and OS1 are not individually processed. These materials are grouped by subject following the titles imposed upon them after they were seperated from the original collection and before they were donated to the K. Ross Toole Archives. The conditions and purposes under which these materials were originally separated are unknown.

Subgroup 2:  Branch Lines, Predecessors and Related Companies, 1881-1960Return to Top

60.75 linear feet and 18 oversize volumes

This subgroup contains materials generated by employees of the branch, predecessor, and subsidiary lines associated with the Northern Pacific Railway Company. These materials were primarily generated by Engineering Department personnel and descriptive terminology is generally consistent with that of Subgroup 1. This subgroup consists of 37 series--most of which are essentially small fragments of the unit's original operations records. Materials include property acquistion correspondence, construction project records (correspondence, financial, and legal records), progress reports, line traffic summaries, and personnel documents.

These materials provide significant primary resources for examining railroad corporate management structures, land ownership histories for properties associated with branch and subsidiary lines as well as regional and localized economic impacts created by railroad construction and repair. Information in this series is primarily presented through general correspondence, bound financial ledgers, compiled tracking reports and narrative summaries, blue print diagrams and maps, and day books maintained by unidentified railroad staff. Throughout this subgroup the phrase "Force Reports" in folder titles refers to reports filed by line engineers regarding actual and projected personnel hours (work force) for construction and repair projects.

Historical and contextual information for some of the branch, predecessor, and related rail lines in this subgroup is very limited. Whenever possible, the scope and notes for each series identify the geographic location of the lines and dates for incoporation into the NPRR system.

Series XXVII: Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Company
5.5 linear feet
The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Company operated main lines from Chicago, IL, to St. Paul, Minnesota, and to St. Louis, MO, and Cody, Wyoming. The CBQRR operated as an affiliated line to the NPRR until 1970 when (with the NPRR) it became a part of the Burlington Northern Railroad Company. This series contains extensive sequences of general correspondence and blueprints from several spurs of the Wyoming Division within the railroad company such as those to Casper, Cody, Worland, Garland, Greybull, and Kane. Blueprints in this series are particularly strong resources for identifying rights of way and land ownership patterns for central and northern Wyoming.

Series XXVIII: Clearwater Short Line Railway Company
15.5 linear feet
The Clearwater Short Line Railway Company's main lines were from Riparia, Washington, to Grangeville, Stites, and Headquarters, Idaho. The company also operated a line from the central Idaho panhandle to Lolo, Montana. The company was incorporated on November 9, 1898, and sold to the Northern Pacific Railway Company on June 23, 1914. This series contains extensive sequences of general correspondence, financial records, personnel reports, and progress summaries from company divisions such as the Culdesac to Grangeville line, Lapwai Branch to Lewiston, Potlatch Branch, and Lolo Branch. General correspondence materials include telegrams, rights of way, construction estimates, and subcontractor negotiations. These materials constitute an unusually detailed and deep resource for studying economic patterns and land ownership histories from central Idaho to western Montana.

Series XXIX: Coeur d’Alene Railway and Navigation Company
2.0 linear feet
The Coeur d’Alene Railway and Navigation Company's main line ran from Cataldo, Idaho to the Montana state line near Mullan, Idaho. It was sold in foreclosure to the NPRR on January 26, 1897.

Subgroup 3:  Advertising and Publicity Department, 1895-1950Return to Top

2.5 linear feet, 24 moving image items, and 2 oversize boxes

This subgroup consists of film and photographs produced by the Advertising and Publicity Department of the Northern Pacific Railroad. These materials document the landscapes and communities along the primary railway routes and the promotional techniques employed by the railway company to encourage both tourism and settlement in the region. Additionally, materials in this subgroup provide interesting primary sources for comparing and contrasting the perceptions of life in the Rocky Mountain West and Pacfic Northwest promoted by the railroad versus those propogated by news media, agricultural agents, and regional authors during the first half of the 20th Century.

Series LX: Moving Images
20 16mm film reels and 4 VHS tapes
This series contains films produced by the railroad promotions department targeted for Eastern and Midwestern U.S. populations and intended to promote rail travel as the best method for viewing the physical beauty and cultural legacy of the Rocky Mountain West and Pacific Northwest. Many of the films portray the region as retaining the character of the "Old West" while incorporating the conveniences of modern life. Materials in this series provide insights into the changes and continuities of railroad advertising techniques spanning the 1920s through the early 1940s--particularly the employment of American Indian greeters, staging tour events at national parks and locations of historical interest, and the promotion of company-owned dude ranches. Additionally, these films preserve images of Rocky Mountain and Pacific Northwest landscapes before the industrial and housing development booms of the post-World War II period. This series contains duplicate film reels for 128(LX):7, 128(LX):13, and 128(LX):18. Reels 128(LX):1, 128(LX):2, 128(LX):7, 128(LX):10, and 128(LX):20 are color film. Only reel 128(LX):14 has sound. Reel 128(LX):15 is a copy of the original at the Oregon Historical Society. All collection VHS tapes are duplicates of film reels. For each instance of a one-to-one relationship, tapes were assigned a common reference number to the film reel original. These tapes correspond with film reels 128(LX):11, 128(LX):12, and 128(LX):13. One VHS tape contains transfers of several film reels. In this one instance the VHS tape was assigned a unique reference number, 128(LX):21.
Researchers are asked to view materials on duplicate VHS tapes.

Series LXI: Photographs
2.5 linear feet and 2 oversize boxes
This series includes photographs generated by the promotions department of the railway. These photographs appear to have been intended for promotional literature, particularly to highlight the agricultural potential of the high plains and river valleys along Northern Pacific Railway routes. The majority of these photographs were captured after the first major homesteading wave in the region (1890s through 1918) and during the disastorous cycles of high plains droughts that resulted in farm foreclosures and homesteader emmigration (1919 through 1933). These photographs depicting agricultural abundance and opportunity present images in marked contrast to the tenor of agricultural studies and regional news reports during the period. In addition, the photographs in this series present images of the towns and landscapes along the railway routes during the early stages of industrial production in the region--when the impact of railroad access is evidenced by transformations in agricultural and timber harvesting methods as well as the capacity of transporting high volume goods to distant markets. Though this series contains photographs spanning the Northern Pacific line, the images predominantly depict the farms and rail hub towns of Montana and Idaho during the 1920s and 1930s. Also included are some documentary images of Northern Pacific promotional exhibits which help to reveal additional context for how the department used the other photographs in this series.
