About the Author:

In writing this corporate history, DON L. HOFFSOMMER had full access to corporate archives and conducted interviews with dozens of present and past company officers. He is the author of several books and many articles on other railroads.

From Library Journal:

In 1901 E. H. Harriman took over the Southern Pacific Company and led it to preeminence among American corpora tions; eight decades later a struggling SP merged with its long-time rival, San ta Fe, and ended its independent exis tence. Hofsommer has written a well- documented analysis of SP's triumph and decline; it is primarily a managerial history, focusing on the company's top leadership during the period. The rail road was the heart of the company's operations, and properly receives the most attention, but SP always had other interests, which are also scrutinized. The author had the cooperation of SP officials and access to company files, but this is not an "authorized" history; the treatment is evenhanded and schol arly. Recommended for all business history collections. Paul B. Cors, Univ. of Wyoming Lib., Laramie
