Here is an article that is very interesting for a variety of reasons. First it tells us about some of the men who made the Sanborn maps and the procedures they used, and it also gives a good example of newspaper research on a topic.
The article comes to us from the "Preservation in Mississippi" Blog. It offers a collection of newspaper articles covering actions of "Sanborn Men" specifically in Mississippi, from their plans to send workers to the state, to identifying individual Sanborn employees as they work with city residents to complete their job.
If you work with Sanborn insurance maps in your research, you will enjoy historical perspective.
