Phil Weibler recently donated a collection of Rock Island glass plate negatives which are currently being scanned. Another acquisition is the Bruce Meyer collection consisting of over 6,000 slides and 2,000 photos. Thanks to Bonnie Meyer, LSRHA will be the caretaker of Bruce's extensive collection of EMD builder's slides and other great photographic images.
The family of Don Ginter donated the rest of his Fairbanks Morse collection to Lake States It consists of company documents catalogs, manuals and builders photos of FM diesels.
Additional Sheffield material was also included in the collection.
The third large collection came from the Edward Wilkommen estate in Wauwatosa, WI. An estimated 10,000 images of railroads world wide shows Ed's love of travel through thousands of negatives, large format slides, and photo prints. It will be a challenge to catalog this collection.
In the future we will highlight some of the images on the LSRHA web site.
Your help is needed to raise the additional $500 for the archival sleeves. You may send your contributions to Lake States Railway Historical Association, 330 Lynn Street, Baraboo, WI 53913. Mark your donation "Ritzman project". Any contribution is gratefully appreciated.
