Excerpt

Mill and Mine: CF&I in the Twentieth Century is the second volume in the history of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company and its predecessors and successors. The focus is on the period when the John D. Rockefellers, father and son, were the firm's largest stockholders. Following the format of Pioneer Steelmaker in the West: The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company, 1872-1903 (1976), this study examines the evolution of what was for many years the West's leading metallurgical and fuel enterprise, and the people who directed and sustained its development in the twentieth century.

Numerous individuals and organizations contributed to the preparation of this volume. First and foremost were the CF&I Steel Corporation (as the firm has been called since 1966), its officers, employees, and pensioners. Special recognition for assistance is due Robert B. Breen, Jasper Butero, Ralph Gallegos, LaVonne Harmen, Mel Harmon, Terry R. Hindmarch, Robert A. and Helen Jackson, Robert W. MacCannon, Michael J. Kraska, Mr. and Mrs. A. Valdez, James G. Wark, Frank J. Yaklich, Jr., and Rich Yates. MacCannon, Kraska, Wark, and Yaklich read all or portions of the manuscript to assist me in treating technical aspects of business activities. Others took the time to acquaint me with various company operations, particularly those with which they had been identified as employees. In this connection, I express appreciation to Ralph Adkins, Joseph L. Apodaca, William J. Brill, D. A. Carter, Harold Christie, Raymond L. Ehrlinger, David Ellington, and Gilbert Fernandez.
