Biographical / Historical:
Kaare K. Nygaard (1903 1989) was a native of Norway who received an M.D. from Royal Frederiks University, Oslo, in 1929. He immigrated to the United States, where he spent a 5 year residency at the Mayo Clinic as a surgeon and researcher on blood. During World War II he organized a wing of the White Plains (N.Y.) Hospital to care for sick and wounded Norwegian merchant seamen at minimal costs; he operated on 4,000 of them. He continued as a general surgeon at White Plains for 40 years, retiring in 1979.

Dr. Nygaard was the author of Hemorrhagic Diseases; Photoelectric Study of Blood Coagulability (published in 1941) and also of over 50 professional papers, mostly on his research on blood. While at the Mayo Clinic he invented and patented the first machine to use photoelectric principles in blood analysis.

Before his medical career began, Dr. Nygaard was a sculptor; he continued his art work throughout his life, with public exhibitions and sales of his work. The United Nations honored his sculpture with a commemorative stamp. He published an autobiography, Knife, Life and Bronzes, in 1986.

Payroll Records

Collection Author:
Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1882 - 1951
Scope and Contents:
This series consists of sixty-one volumes of general payroll records, 1901-1906. Additionally, there are two volumes documenting work on township roads, 1898-1906; five volumes recording work done at Lansford Shops, 1900-1905; and two volumes documenting contract work done at collieries, 1894-1907.

The general payroll records are by colliery number. With the exception of the payroll records for contract work, information in all volumes is recorded bimonthly, e.g. first half of June 1898, second half of June 1898. There are column totals at the bottom of each page, and a summary or recapitulation is given at the end of each bimonthly account.

The general payroll records and the payroll records for township roads and Lansford Shops give the name and occupation of each worker, time worked, rates, gross amount earned, amounts of individual deductions, total deductions, and net amount due each worker. Deductions were for items such as a beneficial fund, water rent, house rent, hauling, coal, the J.C. Bright Store, religious denominations, and taxes. The townships for which there are payroll records are Rahn, Blythe, Schuylkill, and East Norwegian, all in Schuylkill County, and Mauch Chunk in Carbon County.

The payroll information for contract work is reported by colliery number. Within each colliery listing, data is recorded in two-year time spans, e.g. 1894-1895, and gives workers' names in alphabetical order along with hours worked per month and daily earnings. At the end of each colliery report is information for selected years giving the number of men who worked per month and the average amount earned per day. In the back of each volume are combined colliery totals for selected years giving the number of men who worked per month and the average amount earned per day.

These payroll volumes are arranged by type and then chronologically.
