THE INDEX

THE TABLES

On November 1, 1915, Record Clerk C.L. Peterson released an index of all prisoners and prison employees from the institutions inception (May 13, 1873) through January 1, 1915. Peterson's partner in the indexing project, fellow Clerk S.W. Wetmore, died before its completion. The Index purports to catalog some 8348 names of inmates and staff.

The table of EMPLOYEES is available as: 1) sorted alphabetically by surname, and 2) sorted by job title held. There are 881 names in this table.

Absence of dates may mean that either the date of employment was unknown to Wetmore and Peterson, or that the employee was still working at the time the index was compiled.

The INDEX of INMATES is available as a searchable pdf file (caution - large file size - will take awhile to download and open).  To understand the unique categorization system they used in compiling the index, a separate pdf ("The Tables") is also available, which is interesting to browse in its own right.
