Processing History The collection was donated in 2012. Processing began in January 2014 and completed in October 2014. The finding aid was completed in December 2014. Additional Notes Selected photographs are publically available on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. Copyright Status 2014, Center for Railroad Photography &amp; Art. Access and Restrictions For educational use only, please contact the Center for other usage requests. </p><p>Biographical Note Fred Springer (1928-2012) started making railroad photographs in the 1940s in Colorado and New Mexico. Springer was a native of Washington, D.C., who grew up in Houston, Texas. He graduated in 1949 in engineering from Missouri School of Mines in Rolla, Missouri, and worked for Mobil Oil Corporation and subsidiary companies. As a result my rail photography from the early 1940s until 1963 was largely Texas, the Southwest U.S. including New Mexico, and Colorado. I had three tours of duty in the New York headquarters 1963-67, 1968-1976, and 1983-85 at which time I retired and moved back to Texas. Fred Springer </p></li><li><p>Fred M. Springer Collection 6 </p><p> After retirement he and Dale traveled the world by train, visiting almost every country in South America and Europe plus South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Jordan, Syria, Australia, and New Zealand. When they lived in Texas he made many trips to Mexico when steam was still alive in the 1960s and 70s. </p><p>Scope and Content Note The Fred M. Springer Collection includes approximately 47,000 35 mm Kodak color slides organized in 58 plastic cartons (each with up to 24 magazine slots) stored in 14 archival boxes. The photographs range from 1950 2006 covering more than 30 countries in 6 continents along with more than 40 states in the USA. The collection has a strong focus domestically in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and West Virginia with the BNSF, Cass Scenic Railroad, Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad, Denver &amp; Rio Grande Western Railroad, and Rio Grande Southern Railroad. The collection also focuses abroad in Central Europe, Mexico, Middle East, South America, and southern Africa with the Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Mexico, Hedjaz Jordan Railway, La Trochita, South African Railways, and Swiss Federal Railway. The photographs draw emphasis on steam locomotives, narrow and standard gauges, scenic railroad companies, and railroad-related buildings such as stations, depots, engine houses, and museums. Correspondents include Ed Fulcomer and George Werner. </p><p>Arrangement of the Collection This collection is arranged by Fred Springers original order. </p><p> Container List Box Carton Contents Box 1 Springer Slides-Australia-NZ </p><p>Carton 1 Springer-Australia-1998 Australia </p><p> 1998, 27 March 1998, 21 April Great Southern Rail, Indian Pacific Australia, </p><p> Kuranda Scenic Railway, Zig Zag Railway </p></li><li><p>Fred M.
