Welcome to "American Colossus"
American Colossus: The Grain Elevator, 1843 to 1943 has just been published by Colossal Books. Though its author, William J. Brown, intended this 476-page-long book to be encyclopedic, American Colossus inevitably contains omissions. On this blog, WJB will correct these omissions as they are discovered or pointed out. He will also post materials that he hopes will be relevant to his readers, whom he encourages to post the results of their own research into the fascinating subject of grain elevators.
