Hill Family Collection Card Index

This index is a digital version of the card catalogs and calendars originally created by the James J. Hill Reference Library. The cards provide alphabetical and chronological lists that you can browse to find specific correspondents, topics, companies, persons, and places named in the Hill Family Collection. Some cards cite specific files and folders; others refer to chronological series of correspondence and letterpress books.

Note that this index is not a complete guide to every letter, correspondent, subject, or part of the collection. Also, the cards may contain typographical errors, incorrect shelf or series locations, as well as other inaccuracies that will not be updated. Consult the finding aids for the most current information.

The original cards are available for use in the Weyerhaeuser Reading Room of the Minnesota Historical Society Library and on microfilm for interlibrary loan.
