Railroad History in American Life

My goals for this issue and future issues of the Quarterly are to continue coverage of R&LHS, stressing its stature as the oldest railroad history organization in North America, and to open a conversation about the importance of railroad history in American life, now and in the future. R&LHS has for 93 years promoted and educated the public about railroad history through its journal, awards program, archives, and other activities. Together with everyone else associated with the organization, I want to encourage young and old to embrace railroad history as an active, vibrant concept. Read the full message. John Gruber, editor

The Railway & Locomotive Historical Society, Inc., founded in 1921, is the oldest railroad history organization in North America, and among the first anywhere to pursue formal studies in the history of technology. The Society promotes research and encourages preservation of documentation and photography of business history, finance, labor history, and biography as well as technology.
