Subject: [STMFC] Railroads and the Auto Industry: A Research QuestionShawn,
The Ops-Ind list is one place to find out. There was a thread a
while back indicating that Jim Eager and Nick Molo were trying to
compile a list of automobile and lightI don't know if Ward's existed back in the timeframe of your
interest, but it's worth looking into.
John Mitchell is studying the same thing for the 50's, and he
"By the way, the Dept of Commerce in Washington puts out an annual report
prospects for all industries in the US. (Industrial Horizons??) You may be
able to get a really old one from that Dept's library for your time
I know they have been producing it since at least the mid-eighties, but
have done it before that. They also have a chapter on auto parts and I
believe a listing of locations for huge plants necessary to produce major
parts such as stampings, engines, transmissions, etc
In Canada, the Automotive Branch of Industry Canada put out an annual
on the Automotive Industry, including stats on Cdn and NA production, who
produces what, where, etc. Also info on the major parts producers and
plants. The Departmental Library would have copies back to about 1983."
Per their messages, John's email is (was) mitchel2@... and Jim's is
(was) jeager@... .
