Tiger Engine Company No. 2 Membership Rolls

Home/Digital Collections, Uncategorized/Tiger Engine Company No. 2 Membership Rolls

Salem Fire Department's Volunteer Company Membership Roll Book. WHC 0084.050.0001.

This bound book (WHC 0084.050.0001) contains a series of lists of membership rolls for members of Salem's volunteer fire departments that operated between 1857 and the early 1900s.  This volume includes membership rosters for the Capital Engine Co. No. 1, Alert Hook and Ladder Co., Tiger Engine Co. No. 2, Salem Engine Company No. 3 and the Yew Park Hose Company.  The roster lists include members names, dates they joined and left the department and certificate numbers.  

The book was given to the Marion County Historical Society in 1984 by the granddaughter of E.S. Budlong, a member of the Yew Park Hose Company, Salem’s last volunteer firefighting agency. 

 

Digitization Project

As part of the development project for an exhibit at the museum, we needed to systematically look at the records for the Tiger Engine Company No. 2.   This led to the photographing of the company lists.  We decided to post the materials here in order to make them more accessible.  There are many more records in this book that are not digitized, but could be accessed in person in the WHC's research library.  The photography of the records are also not of the highest quality as reference, not digitization, was the original intent of the project.  Records included in this digitization project include 41 pages of membership records, dating April 29, 1869- June 8, 1892.

Salem's Tiger Engine Company No. 2. WHC 0082.002.0022.046.

Tiger Engine Company No. 2. History

The Tiger Engine Company was a volunteer fire company founded April 29, 1869 in Salem, Oregon.  Originally called the Eureka Engine Company, the name was changed soon after.   They operated until Salem established a paid department in 1893. 

Other Documentation 

The history of the company is flushed out in John Wilkerson's book History of the Salem Oregon Fire Department – The Volunteer Era – 1857-1893 (WHC 1982.002.0005).  Additionally, a section of a 1904 souvenir publication Salem Fire Department: 1857-1904 has a chapter devoted to this engine company, with a listing of elected officers.  In transcribing the list, both of these sources were consulted on difficult names, although it should be noted that there are several names on the membership rolls that do not appear in these other sources and there are names in these sources that do not appear on the membership rolls.
