Biography/Administrative History

The Jull Manufacturing Company was started by Orange Jull. He invented and developed the Jull Centrifugal Snow Excavator, an upgrade to the rotary slowplow (which he also invented but sold the rights to the Leslie Brothers).

Scope and Content of Collection

Contains a series of photographs taken on a Union Pacific Railway line with heavy snow in April 1890 on Alpine Pass in Colorado. Shows Jull and other rotary snowplows attempting to clear the tracks. Jull snowplow was a failure and could not clear the rails. A traditional design Leslie rotary snowplow took over and cleared the track. There is a handwritten list of the photographs at the top of the box. [Album 30]
