E&E And IMA Subject Index

Route 1, Box 54 Princeton, Wisconsin 54968

For the past ten years the writer has subscribed to, read and indexed articles that have appeared in The Engineers and Engines Magazine and in The Iron Men Album Magazine. This index has grown to over 160 rubrics or categories with somewhere in the neighborhood of 750 separate entries. Undoubtedly it reflects the bias of the author toward steam engines and threshing machinery and his preference for substantive articles i.e. ones that deal with the history of manufacturing concerns and farm machinery. A glance at the list of rubrics, however, will reveal that other categories such as railroads, sorghum making, gas engines, sawmills, book reviews and even letters to the editors have not been ignored. On the other hand, obituaries (except in rare instances), reports on shows (unless these contain what was judged to be pertinent information), inquiries and rambling personal accounts for the most part have been omitted.

The Index currently exists on 3x5 cards, usually with more than one entry per card. The entries are neither alphabetized nor arranged by date of publication. Consequently one must search through each category; but that is precisely what one would be expected to do.

Each entry takes the following form. Under the rubric Model one will find:

John M. Chmiko: Letter E&E June-July 1988 P 27 Building Model Spoke Wheels. IMA Jan-Feb 1983 P 18.

In the first instance, John Chmiko is the author of a letter published in E & E (The Engineers and Engines Magazine): In the case of letters to the editors the names of the writers are included to facilitate location. The date refers to the issue of the particular journal and is followed by the page on which the letter is to be found. Full pagination is never provided.

In the second illustration the author's name is not given. This is a subject index. The title is followed by IMA (The Iron Men Album Magazine), the date of publication and the page on which the article begins.

Some articles are listed under two or more headings. 'John Froelich's Original and John Deere's Reproduction,' E&E Oct-Nov 1985 P 13 is to be found under John Deere and Froelich for reasons immediately obvious to those interested in John Deere or Froelich.

'The Brandon Motor Contest' E&E Oct-Nov 1988 P 16 likewise is to be found under Avery, Case and Tractors because the article treats gas engines and steam engines, the forementioned in particular.

When the same article has been published in both E&E and IMA it is listed for both magazines. Cross references are given in a few instances. In others, annotations may appear e.g. 'The History of a Foundry' is located under Lobsinger Brothers and is followed by: (May have built the last threshing machine.)

As might be expected, the number of articles to be found under a particular rubric will vary greatly. In some cases, only one may appear. In other instances, such as Case, Reeves, Railroads, threshing machines and tractors the total number of articles may reach well beyond 50. More than 70 are arranged under the heading of Case.

If interested, the writer is willing to share his Index. He does not wish, however, to become engaged in the indexing business and would expect to be reimbursed for his efforts, and for all costs of reproduction and postage. If you wish to call 414-295-3282, listings under particular headings of interest to you will be provided at no cost. Collect calls not accepted!
