Abstract:

Papers of Beggs, president of the Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co. and other utilities, consisting of correspondence, photographs, records of personal financial expenditures, and subject files pertaining to utilities with which he was involved such as the Edison Electric Light Company, The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co. (TMERL), and the St. Louis Car Co. Correspondence primarily dates from the 1890s when he managed the Chicago Edison Electric Co. It also pertains to other companies within the system, such as the Harrisburg Electric Co., for which he had responsibilities. A small portion of the correspondence pertains to TMERL and the Appleton Electric Co.

The photographs are divided into eight lots that document the staff and offices of the Edison Electric Co. in Chicago; TMERL facilities and a staff outing; and his Beggs' Isle estate in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Portraits of Beggs which are found in the Visual Materials Name File are also included in the microfilm portion of this collection.
