Name of Southern Ry. president : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I am interested in learning the correct name of a Southern Ry.president from the 1960s. Was it Bill Brosnan? He was noted for his no-nonsense management. I am writing a book that refers to him in one episode and I want to get it right. Thanks, 30 (E.M.Lewis) P.S. "30" is old railroad telegraph code for end of message.

-- Eugene Lewis (, October 16, 2003



-- Brian Clark (, October 17, 2003.

His correct name is D. William Brosnan, Jr.

-- Dick Fisher (, October 19, 2003.

I hired out in 68' and was not Claytor pres? He loved steam trains

-- Doug McWhorter (, March 14, 2004.

Brosnan became pres. in '62....believe he retired in '67.

-- Greg Hodges (, March 15, 2004.

If you are going to refer to him the way we employees did, then it should be either "Mr. B." or "Wild Bill"
