Large collection, predominantly unbound papers, having to do with various engineering projects, i.e., canals, docks, aqueducts, water works, railroads, etc., primarily in New England. The material on the Middlesex Canal is perhaps the most interesting unit of the collection. Other valuable groups of papers are those concerning the Boston Water Works, and the Charlestown and Norfolk Navy Yards. Includes papers of Loammi Baldwin I, Loammi Baldwin II, James F. Baldwin, George R. Baldwin and other family members.
Loammi Baldwin (1740-1807) was a Revolutionary War soldier and civil engineer. His three sons Loammi (1780-1838), James Fowle (1782-1862) and George Rumford (1798-1888) were also civil engineers.
