The James Roger Personal Paper Collection,  1860-1915 contains the poetry, diaries, and accounts of  James Roger (1841-1916)  who was a prolific poet and diarist, and career railwayman; later in life, an immigrant to the United States, to become a gentleman farmer in rural New Hampshire. He began his 31-year career with the North British Railway Co. in 1866, ultimately serving as the Station Master at Rosslyn Castle, outside Edinburgh [N.B.: Rosslyn Castle Station is on the property with Rosslyn Chapel, famous for its connection to religious and occult history, and made more famous by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code].   Digitization status: ongoing.
