Author: Eileen McCormack
I take a look back at St. Paul’s James J. Hill Reference Library for the Fall 2021 issue of Ramsey County History Magazine.

With over thirty years of professional historical research and archival experience, I work with individuals, institutions, foundations, and businesses to help them achieve their goals of preserving their history and legacy.
My experience can guide your history project from start to finish. I organize and develop new archives and conduct research in existing collections. I create digital content, write articles and books, and give presentations, and teach classes.
What I am working on right now…
- Research and script editing for a long-overdue film project, a four-part documentary on James J. Hill: The Empire Builder (2023 release)
- Consulting and research for the restoration of the A18, James J. Hill’s private rail car, a project led by the Minnesota Transportation Museum
- Biography of Mary T. Hill in her own words, using her personal writings (2023)
- Historical memoir on the early Minnesota railroad town, Clontarf (ongoing)
Please take a look at the site. Examples of my research and writing can be found on the Publications page. Visit the Contact page or send me an email.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Eileen I read with great interest your Mnopedia work on the founding of Clontarf. I just began research for a history of District 20 (the Regan School in Tara township. I would love to discuss my project with you and would appreciate any tips you could give me.
