Archie Monroe Quarrier letterbooks

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 1985_006-UA
These are four letterbooks of Archie Monroe Quarrier's letters spanning the years 1891 to 1900 during his tenure as second vice president of the Louisville and Nashville (L & N) Railroad. Most of the letters discuss personal and family matters but some letters especially those to his brother Cushman, who was the L & N's controller, mention railroad business. Quarrier, a native of West Virginia, moved to Louisville during his adolescence. He joined the L & N in 1858 and became second vice president for finance in 1884. He held the vice presidency until his death in 1900. He moved to New York City in 1891 when the railroad's corporate headquarters relocated there.
