Re: My railroad materials

Temple is the place. “I want them curated and easily accessible.” That describes Temple perfectly. I can’t tell you all the times Craig Ordner (curator) has found things for me, scanned them, and sent them promptly. I have not found such anywhere else.

My wife and I are getting ready to update our wills. One of the things I have been thinking about is what to do with my railroad materials. I have photos, station plats, surveys, clearance charts, etc. mostly dealing with the Alma branch. Back in 1983, I donated all my Raton Pass materials to the De Golyer Library at SMU in Dallas. Some other places I am considering are the Kansas State Historical Society in Topeka, the Santa Fe Archives in Temple, TX; and the California RR Museum. Any other suggestions I should consider? I want to donate the materials to some place they will be curated and will be easily accessable to researchers.
