Boxcar Library

“Superintendent of lumber operations for the Anaconda Co. in Bonner from 1902 to 1925, Ross said he was annoyed in 1917 when two Missoula librarians approached him about bringing books to the lumber camps in the Ninemile Valley. One was Ruth Worden, youngest daughter of Missoula co-founder Francis Worden, who was the Missoula County librarian at the time…He was just being nice when he said OK, Ross let on later.” Boxcar Library that served lumberjacks on display at Fort Missoula museum
