The Edward S. Safford Papers consist of letters written by Safford to his family in Boston. Dating from 1867 to 1871, they chronicle his activities as a surveyor for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad in Kansas. They describe towns along the railroad, persons he met, incidents of work, and land speculation activities. Included is a carte-de-visite of Safford and another surveyor and a "Diary of Important Events" kept by Safford in December 1867 while he was working in Illinois.
