James Page Correspondence

 Collection
Identifier: MS Group 160

Scope and Content

Correspondence, dated 1905 to 1911, pertaining to Page's position as the engineer in charge of constructing a water supply and sewer system in Cienfuegos, Cuba. All of the 1911 correspondence pertains to his resignation. The earlier correspondence provides a small amount of information about the project, but does not provide a detailed description. Of particular interest is a 1910 report on the status of the water system that includes blueprints, correspondence, and estimates ("TasaciĆ³n... del Acueducto Cienfuegos"). Most of the documents from Cuban officials are in Spanish and have been translated, but one letter and the report are available in Spanish only. Folders are arranged in chronological order.
