about company presidents
I am gradually adding information to the database about corporate presidents, CEO's, and chairmen. These are principally the people directed the operations of railroad companies and whose names appear on certificates.
Collectors already know that many of the names that appear on certificates are hard or impossible to decipher. Their poor handwriting is greatly compounded by cancellations. You can help by contributing names of primary operational executives along with their dates in office.
It is normally impossible to discover all the people who directed companies through their entire corporate histories. However, it will help if you can supply the beginning and ending dates of service of individuals. I am NOT interested in exact dates; records to the nearest year are fine.
If you can not discover both beginning and ending dates, please tell me at least one. It is really not very helpful to supply merely a person's name without at least one date.
(I am not interested in secondary figures such as vice presidents, board members, superintendents, treasurers and the like.)
I strongly recommend buying the Cox Catalog from your favorite
