Packing House History Late 1800s - Connections to US

I'm working on researching a book on the start of meat packing industry in my city, Kansas City. In my research I've found several connections to meat packers from my area travelling to England in the 1870s-1890s to work with establishing houses there. Besides Armour, I'm particularly interested in the Fowler Brothers plant and there history. I've tried to do some cursory research online but I've hit a number of impasses. Is there someone within your organization that I could contact who might be willing to help me with some of my research questions.
