Society Information

GM&OHS By-Laws
The Society’s ruling By-Laws are made available here for review.   An index page with hyperlinks is provided for quick reference, followed by the 16 booklet pages.

Society Archives
In 1993, the Society’s Archives were placed with the Mercantile Library in St. Louis.  This entity has since been absorbed into the University of Missouri-St. Louis library.  A catalog was produced which lists the materials housed in the collection. A Guide to the Gulf,Mobile & Ohio Historical Society Collections in the John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library, 1996 is available here.

We are often asked about donations. A monetary donation may be made thru PayPal in any amount. If you are donating and would like a receipt for your taxes, email the secretary

Membership Forms for Distribution
Many of our members attend a variety of gatherings, shows, and meets during the year. If you think you may have the opportunity to recruit a new member or two while at one of these events, be a GM&OHS Ambassador by handing out a few of these Membership Flyers to interested parties. The form is created with color, but may also be printed in black and white (though it won’t look quite as snazzy). Thanks to all our members who spread the word about the GM&O Historical Society far and wide!

For your information, here is a listing by state of members. It is updated only occasionally.

Here is an incomplete list of Switchlists

Last Run
We also have a page dedicated to members and employees of the railroad who have passed on.
If you would like to honor someone, send the webmaster an email with the information.
