Description
This collection primarily consists of correspondence to family from Edwin Nicholas Welter as he worked and traveled throughout Alaska and the Yukon and from Stuart Jackson Welter as he mined for iron in Nevada, chiefly dating from 1900 to the early 1920s. There are also four topographic surveys of Meridian, Nevada (1891-1914).
Background
The Welter Family consisted of Andrew Jackson Welter, his wife Mary Taylor Smith, and their children Edwin Nicholas Welter, Stuart Jackson Welter, Gene Welter Beyette, Grover Welter, Grody Welter, and Rose Murray. The majority of the family lived and worked in such places as Texas and Roswell, N.M. where they ran Welter’s Kandy Kitchen and where Andrew Jackson Welter was justice peace and police judge. The exceptions were Edwin who spent the better part of 23 years in Alaska and the Yukon mining for gold and Stuart who pursued iron mining in Nevada, where he was the vice president of the Gold Basin Mining Milling & Development Company.
