Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Max Ephraim, Jr was born on the South Side in 1918. His father was Jewish and his mother Irish, and Max experienced the discrimination common to both groups at the time. In spite of his modest beginnings, he attended "Armour Tech" during the Great Depression and graduated second in his class in just three and a half years with a degree in mechanical engineering all while editing the school newspaper, playing intramural sports, participating in the Rho Delta Rho fraternity, and working two jobs to pay his way through school. After graduation, he took one day off before launching into his career at the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors. By the time he retired from EMD in 1983, he had gone from draftsman to chief engineer and had been instrumental in the emergence of the diesel locomotive.
