This noted civil engineer rose up from the bottom rung of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, joining as a young man and eventually becoming vice president and general manager; in 1893 the ailing railroad named someone else as president, at which time he wisely resigned and became president of the Mexican Central Railway.
