Vigo Lodge No. 16

Record Book Transcriptions
(1875 through 1887)

The collection contains several codex manuscript documents pertaining to Vigo Lodge 16 of the Brother of Locomotive Engineers, a lodge officer roll book, and a membership roll for the national organization from 1881-82 maintained by Eugene V. Debs. The membership for Vigo Lodge 16 for 1881-82 as it appears in the national roll book, i.e., Record No. 2 / Grand Lodge / B. of L. F., has been both digitized and transcribed.

Below are links to transcribed entries in Vigo Lodge Book No. 1 and No. 2, record books containing minutes of meetings and the signatures of members promising allegiance to the constitution of the national organization. Record Book No. 3 is in preparation and will be linked from this page also. Digitization of the original pages may be performed on request. Under contemplation is a project to preserve all these materials digitally.

Student assistants prepared the initial transcriptions, and we wish to thank Jason Fitch (Book No. 1), Ruchira Kandula (Book No. 2), and Kelly Bird (Book No. 3) for their fine work and dedication to this project.
