Overview and metadata sections

Julier, Henry S.

Henry S. Julier was vice-president and general manager of the American Express Company in New York City during the time of the negotiations and establishment of the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad Company in Maine. F. W. Cram was general manager and, later, president of the railroad company.

The Bangor and Aroostook Railroad is a defunct railroad company that formerly operated lines in northern Maine. In 1864 a group of businessmen from Maine obtained a charter from the state to construct a railroad from Bangor to Moosehead Lake. The company was incorporated in 1891, and in 2002 it was declared bankrupt.

The collection consists of correspondence between Henry S. Julier and F. W. Cram regarding the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad Company and the involvement of the American Express Company in its establishment in Maine. Also included is correspondence regarding other railroad activities in Maine.
