Bill Tupper's memoirs of working on Oregon railroads which covers the period between 1910 through the 1920s.

Willard Leroy "Bill" Tupper (1891-1988) was born in Hillsboro, Oregon and began his railroading career in Portland (Albina) in 1910 working for the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company (OR&N). This was followed in 1911 by a short stint with the Pacific Railroad & Navigation Company (PR&N) out of Hillsboro. In 1912, he began his long working relationship with the Southern Pacific. He appears to have retired from SP around 1959.
