The United States Steel Corporation

Excerpt
Preface: THE following dissertation is an attempt to discuss the rise, character, and influence of the United States Steel Corporation. So much has been written about this organization that little can be said of its history that is absolutely new. The works which have treated this subject, however, have generally been either descriptive rather than analytical in nature, or confined to certain limited phases of its development and financial policies. The purpose of this essay is not so much to give a detailed description of the Steel Corporation as to discuss the influences which gave it birth, and to interpret its general character and reaction upon industrial conditions in the light of those influences. The sources upon which the writer has mainly relied have been the annual reports and other publications of the Steel Corporation itself; several trade journals, of which the most important are the Iron Age and Commercial and Financial Chronicle; and certain governmental documents, particularly the Report of the Industrial Commission. The writer has also derived aid from interviews with officials connected with the steel corporation and other steel companies. He is also under obligations to Drs. E.R.A. Seligman and H.R. Seager who have looked over his manuscript and offered several valuable suggestions.
