Abstract:

Catalog of the Wells, Fargo & Co's exhibition at the 1893 World's Fair. Items exhibited included photographs, stagecoach artifacts, wanted posters, advertisements, and signs. The catalogue lists 173 images and artifacts included in the exhibition with historical information for each. Listed are various important figures in the company's history, including each president from Edwin B. Morgan to John J. Valentine, and famous stagecoach drivers Shotgun Taylor and Hank Monk. Portraits of the drivers were prominently displayed. Of the artifacts listed, many pertain to robberies, including reward posters and broken treasure boxes. "Relics of a Train Robbery" included a mask and various tools used during a train robbery in New Mexico in November 1883. It concludes with a "Record of Robberies" list from November 1870 to November 1884, which showcased the many successes of James Hume, Wells Fargo's chief detective.
