Reel 127 Merger Scrapbooks

Merger IV February - March 1908, V March - May 1908, VI May 1908, VII May - June 1908

The "Merger" scrapbooks which focus on the question of the New Haven Railroad's attempt to control the Boston and Maine Railroad, continue on reel 127. There are releases of the Massachusetts Anti-Merger League, of which Brandeis was a member; accounts of Brandeis' many appearances against the merger; statements by Charles S. Mellen, president of the New Haven, and others for the merger; and press discussion of bills before the Massachusetts Senate which sought to resolve the controversy, as well as a possible U.S. Government anti-trust suit against the New Haven. Merger VI and Merger VII contain indexes to their content, arranged by newspaper and indicating editorials.
