Employees at the Northern Pacific Railway Company (NPRC)
This material is a large index to the personnel files of the Northern Pacific Railway Company. NPRC began keeping
personnel files in about 1909 until the mid 1960s, although some records may include work history dating as far back as the 1880s.
Approximately the index has information about more than 200 000 people, many of whom are Scandinavians. In the index one can find information
such as names, occupation and employee number. The employee number corresponds to a personnel file that can be found at the Minnesota Historical Society.
