I always appreciate leads to authors presenting alternate interpretations of accepted fact, particularly those I was unaware of. Professor Klein appears to a prolific author, who it appears has a donated collection at the St. Louis Mercantile Library. His paper, Jay Gould: A Revisionist Interpretation, (available on line) makes a cogent argument that the elder Gould isn't fully appreciated. I am more likely to read Professor Klein's book about Harriman rather Gould. As it appears George Gould, the son, was completely outclassed Harriman, both as a businessman and a railroad tycoon.
