View all copies of this ISBN edition:

"One of America's most respected companies began with an invention by two men, Stephen Wilxcox and his lifelong friend, George Herman Babcock. Their invention, the water-tube boiler, would make steam power safe for transportation at sea and the generation of large quantities of electrical power. From its inception in 1867, their company, Babcock & Wilcox, was known for its expertise, and for the first fifty years of its existence it dominated the power industry without a major competitor. Here is the documented history of one of the country's best companies, paralleling the chronological history of the steam power industry."
