In the Kittson County Enterprise newspaper dated Dec. 12, 1984: under the weekly article called "In Days Gone By" the following article appeared from the first publication in the paper on December 18, 1931.

Major Baldwin, Father of Philip Baldwin, Officer in charge of the immigration port at Noyes, is credited with finding the route through the Rocky Mountains for the Great Northern Railway. The Great Falls Tribune, in a recent issue, gives an account of the discovery. In 1889, when the railroad wanted a way through the mountains they employed Marcus Baldwin as he was familiar with the country. Major Baldwin was a lawyer in the Flathead area of Montana and was Indian Agent at the Blackfoot Agency.
