Description/Abstract

The records of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Company form one of more than twenty transportation collections in the George Arents Research Library, making Syracuse University a major research center for the study of American transportation. The corporate records, which occupy more than 1800 linear feet of shelf space, were acquired by the University in 1964 from the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad Company acting under the authority of and with approval of the Interstate Commerce Commission. The materials were carefully selected by University staff in consultation with railroad officials, from documents and records formerly located in New York City; Hoboken and Jersey City, New Jersey; Scranton, Pennsylvania; and Cleveland, Ohio.
