Andrew J. Russell : Photography as a historical resource and tool for business development (Spring/Summer 2013)


John Gruber gives us a retrospective on Andrew J. Russell, photographer of the Civil War and of the Union Pacific Railroad construction. Gruber shows that Russell’s work was a business development tool for UP and continues to be a useful historical resource--topics that scholars often ignore.
