Method of Acquisition
This collection was donated to the University of Iowa Libraries by D. M. Christisen between 2002 and 2005. The collection was donated in memory of Locomotive Engineers H. L. Christisen and Glenn Linn, employees of the Milwaukee Road.
Other Descriptive Information
D. M. Christisen has passed away, so it is unlikely we will be receiving further donations to this colleciton. I've put all the addenda into the collection except for The Milwaukee Road Magazine, which was separated from this donation, along with what was already in the collection, for consideration for donating to another collection, if we have this journal in digital form. jlr 11/06
