Biographical/Historical Note

The company and one of its officials, William A. Nowlin, was mentioned in a 1921 publication of a Hearing before the Committee on Manufactures...by the U.S. Senate, S.4848, in 1921 by the 66th Congress.

A threatened strike in the coal mines in 1920 had caused a shortage of coal and an embargo of transporting coal on railroads through the West Virginia mines. This shortage has caused sharp rises in the price of coal, so Congress was investigating several coal companies.
