About the Author

Working from a home base in the industrial heartland of northern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, for twenty years Quentin R. Skrabec Jr. has been researching the history of America's industrialization and the key figures who moved the process forward, resulting in a series of biographies of American industrialists published by Algora. He has published over fifty articles on history, industrial history and business, and five books on the late 1800s and American business.

Prof. Skrabec has been an Associate Professor of Business at the University of Findlay, OH, since 1998. He has taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Toledo, the University of Akron, University of Pittsburgh, and Robert Morris University.

A Pittsburgher himself, from the East End section of the city, Quentin Skrabec grew up in its rich heritage. Having written biographies of some of its most successful residents — Heinz, Westinghouse, McGuffey, Carnegie, and Frick, in this book Prof. Skrabec develops many stories of the famous capitalists who lived in Pittsburgh's East End.
