Compiling 85 years of Helena Branch history would not have been possible without the assistance of the following people:
The late Glenn E. Martin, who began this project, and Scott C. Morrison, a student at Carroll College, Helena, who completed Glenn's work in 1996; Dorothy S. Litvany and Arlene H. Bergfalk of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis for their archival research; Rex A. Martin for research at the Montana Historical Society; Diana Norton, Helena City Engineer's office, and Don Kearns, Division of Rehabilitation, Helena, for their building research; Randy Fraser, John L. Heath, Mary Neil, Mildred McGauvran, Steve Surman, Jay McLeod, Betty Lindstrom, and Bill Bell, retirees and employees, for their memories of Branch history; all other Helena Branch employees who added highlights of events over the years; and finally Joan Flaherty for her tireless dedication to coordinating the First Edition.
The Minneapolis Public Affairs staff for their editorial assistance; Sam Gane and Paul Drake for their memories, information and coordination; and Susan Woodrow for her information regarding Community Affairs and the EPIC project.
Thank you for your contributions.
