Q&A: Annual Reports of the Western Pacific Railroad to the Interstate Commerce Commission

Question:

I'm looking for the annual filings of the Western Pacific Railroad to the Interstate Commerce Commission, which are done on Form R-1. Does Stanford have those reports for years 1960 through 1980?

Answer: 

We don't archive original filings of companies with the Commerce Dept. or the Interstate Commerce Commission. However, research on the railroad filings shows that they were used for (among other things) compiling the Annual Report on Transport Statistics. The original Forms R-1 were also used by the IRS for tax purposes. The ICC statistical parts, compiled in the Annual Report on Transport Statistics, have specific statistics for each railroad. We have these statistical reports for the years 1954 through 1994.


Q&A: Papers of the U.S. Constitution's Framers

Question:

Where can I find the papers of America's founders, the framers of the U.S. Constitution?

Answer: 

You might want to start with Stanford's U.S. History Collections Page for Colonial/Revolutionary History, specifically the section on founders' documents, which has links to digital papers and locations for print items.

As far as digital collections go, there are two good databases: Thomas (from the Library of Congress) and the Avalon Project from Yale Law School. The Avalon Project's page has a search function. Start by linking to pre-18th century documents, then search for "framers." You will find many relevant documents.
