Steven Lee Stepp “The Old Reliable”
The History of the Springfield Wagon Company 1872 – 1952 by Steven Lee Stepp, 1972
Written by Mr. Stepp as a Masters Thesis for Southwest Missouri State College. The author was able to gain access to the early business papers of the Springfield Wagon Company. These papers, still in their original form and largely intact, provide great insight into the daily workings of the largest wagon company west of the Mississippi River.
Former employees, still living at the time aided greatly in filling gaps in the written records. Paper back, 150 pages, with several pages of old ads and pictures.
Each book personally signed by Mr. Stepp.
