Biographical/Historical note
In 1867 George Mortimer Pullman (1831-1897) and Ben Field organized the Pullman Palace Car Co. "This company became the world's greatest car-building and car-repairing enterprise, with plants located at Pullman, Illinois (now part of Chicago), and many other places in North and South America and even in Europe,"--Hubbard Freeman in the "Encyclopedia of North American Railroading." These registers and records pertain to the manufacturing end of the company--the Chicago works at Pullman, Illinois.
