File Unit 0010.  Ruth Teiser Research, 1944-1946

Extent: 13 folders.

Scope and Content Note

Documents appear to be the research records of Ruth Teiser, an historical researcher apparently hired by Bethlehem Steel Corporation to research Union Iron Works. Research was conducted at various libraries and resulted in what she called a "disjouinted" order. Although mention is made of an index, no such document appears in this collection.
Items include correspondence between Mrs. Ruth Teiser and Mr. M.D. Salisbury of Bethlehem Steel Corp and numerous related research extracts. Mrs. Teiser's researcher reports, mailed between 15 August 1944 and 29 December 1945, serve as convenient division points for housing the extract documents. Documents include approximately 32 letters and 391 extracts (numbered 10-417) from sources published between 1851 and 1905.(Extracts for the following numbers were not found among these documents: 1-9; 17; 116; 186; 188; 199-204; 254; 260-261; 393; and 400-404.).

Typed and dated sheets contain a daily (Monday through Saturday) record of work orders received by Risdon Iron Works between January 2 and December 30, 1914.

A more complete description of the work requested is found in this document.

Boxes 133-136

Subseries 0006.0004.  Subseries: Order Records, 1908-1915

Extent: 9 file units

Scope and Content Note

These order records appear to have come from the files of Mr. Knut M. Dahl, who was identified as the Chief Engineering Draftsman in both the 1893-1895 photograph entitled "Department Heads, Union Iron Works" and the 1903 photograph entitled "Pacific Coast Steel Shipbuilders." Copies of these order records were also sent to Mr. Frear, Mr. Milne, Mr. Cronin, Mr. Fraser, Mr. Haley, Mr. Cotton, Mr. Taylor and Mr. Johnstone. According to the aforementioned photographs, Hugo P. Frear served as the chief hull draftsman; either TS or TB Cronin ran the boiler shop; Daniel Fraser was in charge of the heavy machine shop; and, in 1893, Mike Haley ran the light machine shop. Mike Haley does not appear in the 1903 photo though Harry Haley does. Time cards from 1917 and 1918 list a Mr. Cotton as the shipfitters foreman and a Mr. Taylor as the Rivets & Drill foreman. By 1920, Hugo P. Frear held the title of Naval Architect (see the "Transactions of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers"). At this point, it is impossible to determine Mr. Dahl's title in 1908-1911, the time period for these order records.
These records were tied into manageable bundles and placed into storage boxes. Missing portions of these records covering others years were probably stored in a similar manner and then eventually discarded or lost. These orders should correspond to orders placed in the large order books for Union Iron Works.

Nine file units, or "bundles", are arranged into four boxes. File unit level descriptions contain detailed listings of contents.
