From the apprentice on the "Tom Thumb" to the master machinist of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad, the career of James Millholland spanned nearly a half century in the early development of the American railroad. One of the great mechanics of the 19th century, he is remembered not only for his highly original innovations, the most outstanding of which was the conversion of the wood burner to the anthracite burner, but also for his locomotives, which were plain, practical machines, highly distinctive from the ornate locomotives of the period.
THE AUTHOR: John H. White is associate curator of transportation in the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of History and Technology.
