Cordially, Patricia Maus email@example.com #2 Catherine, I would be shocked if Mr. D'Autremont did not appear on the radar of the Great Northern Railway and James J. Hill. The corporate papers, as you are probably aware, are held by the Minnesota Historical Society. The Hill family papers were held by the James J. Hill Reference library, but as I understand it are now owned by the MHS as well. Scott E. Randolph, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of History Armstrong Atlantic State University Curator, Erie Lackawanna Historical Society #3 America's Historical Newspapers includes 13,000 issues of the Duluth News-Tribune (1881-1922). A quick search of D'Autremont in the headline field returns dozens of relevant results. David G.

I haven't found much information about him specifically and am now branching out and looking for connections to his university classmates, other prominent people from late 19th century Duluth, and mining investment colleagues. D'Autremont attended Cornell University from 1869-1871, Columbia Univ. Law School (class of 1875), then moved to Duluth in the early 1880s, was active in politics, real estate law, and iron ore and copper mining investing. If anyone has come across his name or is doing research in any of the above areas, I would appreciate hearing from you. Best regards, Catherine Catherine C.
