"Lucius Morris Beebe (December 9, 1902 – February 4, 1966) was an American author, gourmand, photographer, railroad historian, journalist, and syndicated columnist...n 1950, Beebe and his long-time friend and partner, photographer Charles Clegg, moved to Virginia City, Nevada, where they purchased and restored the Piper family home and later purchased the dormant Territorial Enterprise newspaper. The newspaper was relaunched in 1952 and by 1954 had achieved the highest circulation in the West for a weekly newspaper. He and Clegg co-wrote the "That Was the West" series of historical essays for the newspaper. In 1960 Beebe began work with the San Francisco Chronicle where he wrote a syndicated column, This Wild West. During the six years that he wrote the column, Beebe covered such topics as economics, politics, journalism, religion, history, morals, justice, finance, and travel." .

No DJ. ; 8" x 11-1/8", 225pp. Red cloth, dulled-gold lettering in black spine panels, almost bright gold lettering in front cover black spine panels. REFERENCE / HISTORY. "HIGHBALL has been brought into being in the full knowledge that profound change is at hand in the shops and roundhouses and dispatchers' offices of the countryside and that, indeed, many of the most fascinating chapters of the legend must already be written in the past tense and that the would-be historian must seize upon all the glamour that is left to the rails if he is to preserve any part of it for the dreary and Diesel-shrouded future. The borrowed time on which a vast number of little railraods have been living is, as this is beng written coming to a close. I have hoped to preserve a little of them for the record. " Contents: Some little railroads; Power for the grade; Portrait gallery; The Pennsy and the Pacific; Colorado chronicle; Crummies. ... Includes a page , "Whistle Code", which also includes the Conductor's Signals. Over 160 b/w photos. "Highball: Railroad parlance for a clearance, clear track, or order to proceed, deriving from the metal globes by which train movements were controlled before the introduction of semaphores or other position signals.
