  • PROVIDING POWER FOR A NEW AGE: THE R&V STORY

    As the 1900s began, the world looked forward with optimism yet a sense of anxiety. A technological and cultural revolution was at hand. In the United States, people sought someone who would provide power for the technologies becoming available. Providing Power for a New Age: The R&V Story tells of one, mostly forgotten, story of a company that rose to the challenge of creating this power. This book takes you through a chronological tale of the Root and Van Dervoort Engineering Company and The Moline Automobile Company. It will take you through beginnings and ends, strikes, and “The War to End All Wars,” until the company finally comes to its end. This book does not end there, however; it gives you a tour of the R&V factory, explains the lives of those people important to the R&V story, and gives you an in-depth look at the products this factory, and these people, created. Providing Power for a New Age: The R&V Story includes many never-before seen photos and illustrations. The R&V story may have once been nearly forgotten, but this book brings light back to an extraordinary legacy.

  • RAILROADS FOR MICHIGAN

    In this thoroughly researched history, Graydon Meints tells the fascinating story of the railroad's arrival and development in Michigan. An engaging and accessible text, Railroads for Michigan describes the long-awaited and often-troubled advent of the railroad in the state, the building of which shifted from private to public efforts and back again, amid tumultuous social, business and political developments. The railroad would come to play a role in almost every critical event in Michigan's history, including the Civil War, the Granger Movement, and the Gilded Age, before beginning to wane following the arrival of the automobile, the Interstate Commerce Commission, World War I and the Great Depression. A brief growth spurt during World War II was short-lived, and it was followed by the collapse of several major railroads and the formation of Amtrak and Conrail. Looking ahead to the future of the railroad in the Great Lakes region, Meints assesses the strengths and shortcomings of this revolutionary invention. With careful attention to the personal impact of the railroad, Meints recognizes in brief biographies the many men and women responsible for the development and operation of Michigan railroads, as well as the triumphs, tragedies and spaces that shaped their lives and work.
