Trucking Employees In Indianapolis In 1941

Most of the city directories I get information from are more detailed than the one I used for Indianapolis, Indiana. Many of the residents whom worked in the trucking industry were only listed by thie occupation and not of the employer. As such, residents with occupations listed as driver, dockman or clerks could not be listed by the individual trucking companies. this list contain the few that could be assigned to their employers and were listed as shown in the directory.
