Biographical/Historical Note

The signature in this collection belongs to Roswell Beebe, President of the Cairo and Fulton Railroad Company. Today’s Union Pacific Railroad line from the Missouri state line through Little Rock, Pulaski County, to Texarkana, Miller County, was constructed by the Cairo and Fulton Railroad. Over a period of more than 100 years, the Cairo and Fulton merged first into the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern then into the Missouri Pacific, and finally into today’s Union Pacific. As the first railroad to connect Arkansas to Missouri and the eastern United States, the Cairo and Fulton opened up the state for development.
