Great American Hoteliers
“Great American Hoteliers: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry is a compilation of sixteen brief yet well-researched biographical portraits of American businessmen who ran successful hotel industries from the 1800s to modern times. Also reflecting on how technological advances such as the proliferation of rail and air travel affected the growth of the hotel industry, Great American Hoteliers is a fascinating profile of the changes within an industry amid the life stories of the leaders who made that industry happen. Some of the hoteliers are well-known; others are all but forgotten in the modern day. An excellent addition to American business history and biographical reference shelves.”
