U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, administers lock and dam building and operations for the upper Mississippi River region and maintains historic collections related to its activities. From headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, this district office has served the upper Mississippi River basin and surrounding areas since 1866. The St. Paul District office contributed to Minnesota Reflections images from the Henry P. Bosse (1844-1903) photographic collection of the Upper Mississippi taken between 1883 and 1892, while Bosse was employed as a draftsman by the Corps. His images include long-vanished vistas of bluffs and coulees, rapidly growing cities, workboats pulling snags out of new channels, rock quarries, dredging operations and construction of dams and bridges.
