Re: UFCo Annual Reports, 1900-1989, are available (copies)

I would like a copy please

Re: UFCo Annual Reports, 1900-1989, are available (copies)

Hi,
How can I get a copy of these reports?
Is there a way to find out more about UFCo sugar mills in Cuba?
Specifically the one called Central Preston.

I am also looking for more information about the railroads they owned in the Banes, Nipe Bay area of Cuba.

If you look at Frederick Adams's book Conquest of the Tropics he highlights this are as Cuba's sugar bowl.

My great-grandfather worked for UFCo (I'm guessing since my grandmother and all of her siblings were born in Preston), but I am trying to figure out why the family moved to Guantanamo (he went there to work on the Guantanamo railroad)...

Any information will be wholesomely appreciated.

Best,
~Rebecca

The UFCo annual reports could be an invaluable resource for my research on the UFC.

Thank you for making them available and I hope this message reaches you.
