The American iron and steel industry is currently making a strong comeback; it therefore seems opportune now to take a look back at its formative years. The series under which the present volume is issued is devoted to tracing the rise of the industry through biographical studies of the men and women who made it prominent. Another in the series is Railroads in the Age of Regulation 1900-1980 ( LJ 6/15/88)-- Ed. This reference book places the iron and steel industry and its leaders within the social, economic, and political context of their times. Additional nonbiographical information on inventions, production processes, legislation, marketing, and other related topics is integrated within the text to provide a clear picture of the growth of the industry. Extensive references to source materials at the end of each entry will be a boon for researchers. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.
