Everytime I research a company long gone, I discover more carriers that I had not even heard of before. Most are small companies from the 1930s and 1949s that were acquired into other firms that were eventually bought out by those trucking companies that went under soon after deregulation.
I am soon to be finished researching the trucking industry of Toledo, Ohio in 1957 and Akron, Ohio in 1948. I also am starting getting together info from Denver, Colorado and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
