john m. barber
January 07, 1993|By Kenan Heise.

John M. Barber, 77, a retired railroad conductor, was one of the first two African Americans to serve in that position for the Milwaukee Road and one of the first in the nation.
He was born in Eola, Mo.
A resident of Evanston, he died Sunday at home.

Blacks traditionally held jobs as waiters and porters on trains, but were excluded from better-paying jobs such as conductors, firemen and engineers. He and several friends were hired as porters by the Milwaukee Road in the mid-1930s, and he worked in that position until serving in World II.
After the war, he returned to work for the railroad. In the late 1940s, he and a friend, Joe Murray, were promoted by the Milwaukee Road to be the first two black conductors. He retired in 1980.

women in rr
Susan Morningstar, working for the Baltimore & Ohio in 1855, is one of the first women on record employed by a railroad.
Women were also sometimes used in advertising campaigns for the railroads, such as the famous Phoebe Snow depicted in the Delaware & Lackawanna publicity posters.

I thought you might want to research these 2 ladies.

It was a pleasure! If you need any more from St. Peter's don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm a 10 minute walk away.

All the best,

Good hunting!

Welcome back.... I'll be around in May though toward the end my sister in law will be here from England - a first in 41 years. Sure we can get together sometime over that. The hotel was across the street from my barber and there is nothing there now, I think.
