Stephen Fried, adjunct journalism professor at Columbia University Graduate School, recounts the life of Fred Harvey, one of the earliest innovators of the American hospitality industry. Mr. Harvey, was the proprietor of sixty-five restaurants and lunch counters along the Santa Fe Railroad and several hotels from Chicago to Los Angeles. Mr. Fried examines how Fred Harvey's restaurant and hotel locations dovetailed with westward expansion and how the Harvey House became a part of the American lexicon and a precursor to today's fast food franchises. Stephen Fried discusses his book at Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri.
