As the 1900’s opened the world looked on with optimism yet a sense of anxiety. A technological and cultural revolution was at hand. In the United States people looked for someone who would provide power for the technologies becoming available. Providing Power for A New Age: The R&V Story tells of one, mostly forgotten, story of a company that rose to the challenge of creating this power. This book takes you through a chronological tale of the Root and Van Dervoort Engineering Company and The Moline Automobile Company. It will take you through beginnings and ends, strikes, and “The War to End All Wars”, until the company finally comes to its end. This book does not end there, however, it gives you a tour of the R&V factory, explains the lives of those people important to the R&V story, and gives you an in-depth look at the products this factory, and these people, created. Providing Power for a New Age: The R&V Story includes many never-before seen photos and illustrations. The R&V story may have once been nearly forgotten, but this book brings light back to an extraordinary legacy. Condition: New
