For railroad bibliophiles and historians of technology, here's a bibliography that I compiled a few years ago (with Jack's help) of books and articles written by retired Smithsonian railroad transportation curator Jack White from 1957-2011--enjoy! ~K.R. Bell

Kurt, thank you.

I have another one to add:

"Preserving a National Symbol: The Steam Locomotive" in IA, The Journal of the Society for Industrial Archeology, Vol. 7, No. 1, 1981.

Address being used for the SIA at that time was an room within the NMAH of the Smithsonian.

Thanks, Brian--this article entry must have fallen off the radar and was absent from Jack's own listing. The SIA's old NMAH address was that of Bob Vogel, SI's curator of civil and mechanical engineering who was a founder of the SIA in the late 1960s/early 1970s. He and Jack remain close friends, and Bob even collected railroad archival material during his SI tenure. Vogel is married to Helena Wright, who remains active as an NMAH curator.

I would add the following to the list:

“Exploring the Past with Steamdome,” [a previously used pseudonym] consisting of four items: “The Railroad Station Water Column,” “The Union Pacific Omaha Bridge – 1872,” “The Great Omaha Bridge,” and “Baggage Abuse,” Railway & Locomotive Historical Society Quarterly, Fall 2008 – Winter 2009, pp. 6-9.

"Full Steam Ahead! Hudson River Steamboats," Invention & Technology, Winter 2011, pp. 30-39.

I think the last one was on an earlier edition of the list.

Hi All

Mr. White wrote several impassionate letters about EP&SW #1 to a fellow Southwest Chapter of the R&LHS member. The letters match his writings that I have read on preservation. Those letters had a great influence on me. I have only met him once. This was at the 1985 R&LHS convention I was sent to the car that he was talking to Mr. Best to tell them where they could move to see SP 3420 operating. I have often hoped that the work on EP & SW#1 would meet his approval.
