Cadillac and Steve. 1988
William "Cadillac" Peterson. True
legend of Railroading. The "Cadillac" was known as the king
of the New Haven dining car and parlor car service. He met gangsters
(best tippers!), movie stars, politicians and royalty. He even
broke in a new hire waiter who later became known as Malcolm X.
The railroad was built on the strong backs of
the likes of this great man.
HERE to read a poem I wrote about "Cadillac Pete."
