Summary
"Railroaders--the exhibition and the catalog--breaks new ground for exhibitions of historical photographs and the genre of railroad books ... Breaking new ground is not easy. But that is what John Gruber and his miniscule crew deliberately set about in creating this work. They recognized that the lives of individual railroaders make for compelling, universal stories, if enough time and trouble are taken to research them. Taken together, the biographies constitute a history of railroad work in the first half of the twentieth century ... The superb original color and black-and-white portraits by Jack Delano for the Office of War Information, 1942-1943, have never been seen in this aggregate fashion"--From publisher description
