There are a wealth of historic resources at the website for my book on the Alaska Railroad construction from 1902 to 1923. Most of the resources I used in researching the history and writing the book are there.

Link to the 1913 Congressional Report of the Alaska Railroad Commission, on Railway Routes in Alaska.

Below is an excerpt from this report, a message from President William H. Taft dated February 6, 1913, in which he explains the purpose and meaning of the commission report.
