Abstract: William H. Wenneman was a Cleveland, Ohio, railroad executive who served with the Chesapeake and Ohio, the Pere Marquette, and the Nickel Plate railroads. He was vice-president of the C&O and the Nickel Plate in 1946, but resigned over conflicts with chairman Robert R. Young. In 1950 he became vice-president of finance for the Nickel Plate after it was separated from Robert Young enterprises. He retired in 1959. The collection consists of autobiographical memoirs describing Wenneman's years with the Nickel Plate (New York, Chicago, and St. Louis Railroad) and the Chesapeake and Ohio, his friendship with the Van Sweringen Brothers, the Cleveland business community, and personalities within the Cleveland transportation industry.
