Prof. Richard A. Wright: West of Laramie -- A Brief History of The Auto Industry
 
It is safe to say that few people are legitimately categorized as pivotal in one's life.  For eMOTION! REPORTS.com Publisher Myron D. Stokes, his father, Dr. Rufus Stokes, a scientist and inventor, occupies that position effortlessly.  There were others; Charles "Doc" Jackson, a pharmacist in civilian life and during World War II, a Master Sergeant in the Pacific Theater of Operations while based in Port Moresby, New Guinea; Bill Biddinger, a General Manager with Bethlehem Steel; Dr. Thomas Donahue of the University of Michigan's Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences department; the late Dr. Theodore Fujita of the University of Chicago, one of the world's foremost authorities on severe weather and who lent his name to the Tornado assessment scale; Ed Henry of Changing Times, Frank Washington, former Detroit Bureau Chief for Newsweek and most recently, futurist and Pentagon Consultant Dr. Sheila Ronis. 
 
His first real forays into the world of automotive journalism and analysis, however, were owing to the kindness, patience and professionalism of former Detroit News Automotive Editor and current Wayne State University Assistant Professor of Journalism Richard A. Wright.  At the risk of descending into a pun, he says "I thought I could write until I met Wright."
 
One of Wright's latest works "West of Laramie -- A Brief History of The Auto Industry", an E-Book published by WSU Press, comes to us via this world renowned institution, The Antique Automobile Club of America, the good Professor and his friend and colleague Jenny King.  The title pays homage to the marketing genius of Ned Jordan, builder of the car that bore his name.
 
We encourage you to download and read this excellent work, which is written in an easy flowing style that is Wright's trademark.
 
Enjoy...
