About this title


The purpose of this study is to illuminate the process of economic development by focusing upon the railroad industry in general and a specific case history, the Richmond Terminal, in particular. The railroads were a vital sector not only because they came first but because they paved the way for massive investments in other industries and enterprises. On this point a survey of the careers of individual financiers was necessary. As this study will show, most southern rail entrepreneurs either invested in transportation to protect prior interests in other industries or, more commonly, went from the railroads to such sequential investments as mining, cotton mills, real estate, express business, manufacturing, and industrial development of all kinds. In this manner the railroads triggered and fostered industrial activity throughout the South and provided not only transportation but a formidable group of experiences and talented financiers willing to extend their southern commitments.
