Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Herman H. Pevler was the 10th president of the Roanoke, VA based Norfolk and Western Railway. He had previously served as president of the Wabash Railroad, and served as president of the N&W from October 1, 1963, until his retirement in April 1970. Pevler succeeded Stuart T. Saunders, who left to head the Pennsylvania Railroad, a major stockholder of the N&W at that time. He oversaw consummation of a complex group of mergers begun under Saunders which brought into the N&W fold the Nickel Plate Road, the Wabash Railroad and portions of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The mergers were completed in 1964, and widely expanded the company, reaching such major points as Detroit, Chicago, and St. Louis. The latter two were major gateways and interchange points with western railroads.show more
