Evesmith, Hansen (1867-unknown) | Archives and Special Collections, Kathryn A. Martin Library, University of Minnesota Duluth

Name: Evesmith, Hansen (1867-unknown)
Variant Name: Hansen Eve Smith, Hansen Evsmith

Historical Note: Hansen Evesmith was originally named Hansen Eve Smith, but because his spoken name sounded like Hansen Evesmith, many people believed this was his name; therefore, he changed his name to Evesmith. He was active in exploration of the iron lands in both the Vermilion and Mesabi Ranges of Minnesota from 1892-1903. He was an assistant to Cassius Merritt, serving him as Treasurer of the Duluth Mesabi and Northern Railway Company. Evesmith was a member of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and founder of the Zenith Coal Company in North Dakota.
