You're just teasing us because AISC has that awesome historic library ----- and it's next to impossible for you guys to find something you don't have references for.
Have a safe and happy 4th!

Hi All,
I am trying to locate information on the producers and engineering properties (at least dimensions) of structural steel produced for use in the US before 1873 (before Carnegie adopted the Bessemer process).  I suspect that steel may have been imported to the US prior to that time.
If you know of any place where I might find such information, please let me know.
