In the spring of 1987 I received, with the support of Dr. Nick Honerkamp, a Provost Student Research Grant at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The title of the grant proposal was "Inventory and Assessment of the Austin Western Collection" and it was awarded with the understanding that I would, under Dr. Honerkamp's direction, create a inventory of the Austin Western Company's corporate records. Our plan of work was to begin in the fall semester of 1987 to inventory all company records, films, and photographs and to provide for the storage of more than 200 blueprints that accompanied the records. This was to be accomplished over a fifteen week period. After a brief assessment of the records we altered the research strategy and decided to concentrate on the photographs and films because they were most in need of attention.
