BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

Isaac Post Baker was born at Weston, Missouri, on July 20, 1855, and attended Central College at Fayette.  His father was John Baker, who engaged in wholesaling merchandise and as manager of one of the leading steamboat lines on the Mississippi.  Isaac P. Baker worked closely with his father and acquired business and shipping experience early in life.

Baker was operating independently in St. Louis as an agent for several boat lines when he was hired by Thomas C. Power to replace J. C. Barr as General Agent for the Benton Line at Bismarck in 1881.  He was active in the business as liaison with the railroads, the fuel suppliers, and civil and military contractors.  His principal contribution to the business was the institution of an efficient means of bookkeeping, requisitioning, and budgeting.

By 1883 Baker was part owner of some of the boats of the Benton Line.  The decade of the 1880's was especially trying to the steamboat interests because of the decrease in military contracts, further westward extension of the railroads, and high cost of labor and parts.  It is a credit to Baker that the Benton Transportation Company survived.  However, by the late 1880's Baker realized steamboating alone would not provide a livelihood.  This is evidenced by the purchase of the Bank of Bismarck by Baker and Thomas C. Power.  Sometime later Baker expanded his economic interests to include the Cannon Ball Cattle Company, the Bismarck Realty Company, the Bismarck Elevator and Investment Company, and various mercantile firms at Washburn, Sanger, and Mannhaven.

By 1904, the traditional steamboat was mainly replaced by gasoline packet and the need for long hauls for either military or civilian goods had been obviated by the railheads which reached the river in strategic places.  The Benton Transportation Company was reorganized as the Benton Packet Company.  It operated small gas-powered boats between Pierre, South Dakota and Glendive, Montana, but most of the twentieth century business was conducted in the section of the Missouri River between Fort Yates and Fort Berthold. The cargoes on the gas-powered packets consisted in large part of wheat, flax, oats, and coal for the Indian schools and agencies.  I. P. Baker continued his career as a boat line operator until about 1925 when two of his sons, Benton and Finley, assumed the most active part.

Baker actively engaged in politics and many other activities.  He was Democratic Mayor of Bismarck (1890-1891), a member of the Democratic National Committee (1892-1896), and delegate to the Democratic National Convention at Kansas City, Missouri, in 1900.  From 1895 to 1897 he was Chairman of the Bismarck Citizens Committee which was instrumental in securing the construction of Ft. Lincoln near Bismarck and the transfer of the Ft. Yates garrison to the new post.

After 1907, Baker was one of the Directors of the National Rivers and Harbors Congress and an active member of the Missouri River Navigational Congress.  Both of these organizations were dedicated to the goals of river improvement and revival of river commerce. He consistently fought for increased government support of Missouri River improvement.

Baker was interested in scientific agriculture, particularly in the breeding of purebred cattle, and the adoption of new grasses to the North Dakota environment.  He actively participated in agricultural organizations and, in 1915, was president of the North Dakota Agricultural Exposition.  During World War I Baker served as Federal Fuel Administrator of North Dakota.

Baker was interested in history and collected many articles and clippings about the western frontier.  This interest helped him when he served as the North Dakota delegate on the National Advisory Commission to the U. S. Sesquicentennial Exhibition Association of Philadelphia in 1926.  He was also a member of the North Dakota Peace Society and was one of the civic leaders who cleared the way for the construction of the highway bridge across the Missouri at Bismarck after World War I.

Isaac P. Baker married Julia Franklin Barnes on January 10, 1889 at Bismarck.  They were the parents of six children: Benton, Frayne, Julia Franklin, Finley, Anne, and Weston.  Isaac P. Baker died January 28, 1938 at age 82 and is buried in Missouri.

The bank correspondence was arranged after the general correspondence and is organized alphabetically by bank name.

ORIGINAL ARRANGEMENT

After I. P. Baker's death in 1938 a large portion of his papers were discovered in a Bismarck warehouse and salvaged by the State Historical Society.  The papers were cleaned and partially arranged by the Division of Women's and Professional Projects of the Works Projects Administration (WPA) in 1939.  The I. P. Baker collection was loaned to the Chester Fritz Library at the University of North Dakota for organization, cataloging, and microfilming in 1968.  At the conclusion of the five year loan period, the Baker papers were returned to the State Historical Society where the papers underwent additional arrangement and description.  At this time much of the collection was placed in acid free folders and boxes. The bundled scrapbooks, clipping, check stubs, receipts, and bills all required reorganization so they would appear alphabetically by keyword or place name.  Financial Records are arranged chronologically by key name both in the boxes and on the shelves. Existing files in the various record groups were retained when possible.
