Writer's commentary:


My wife Evie works closely with me on the research. We have left no stone unturned in trying to answer all the questions about Stanford that I am asked by Stanford people, by California, railroad, and Western historians, and by a number of California and local officials, questions about the man's life and career that have troubled Stanford aficionados and followers for the past century or more. I have researched every "loose end" in his life that I could identify by talking with those interested in Stanford's career, and in checking the gaps in works published about him, including my own.

Because Stanford had so many proverbial "irons in the fire" at the time of his death, I have written a concluding chapter titled "Epilogue and Legacy," which brings the reader up-to-date on all these matters.

Our travels to clear up major questions on the life of Stanford include trips to New York, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Florence, Italy, Silvaplana, Switzerland, and London. I include in my bibliography a list of people I have interviewed and with whom I have corresponded to exemplify travels of another kind in search of information.

This extensive biography deals with many aspects of Stanford's life never before published and in many cases, it would seem, never before examined. It may be the longest or at least the most detailed work written on a state governor. It is a source book on the man and his times as well as a story of one man's life. The identity and relationship to Stanford of almost every "major minor character" is explained in a note or sidebar, and many of them are identified in the "In Memoriam" section at the end.

Why does the world need a biography of Leland Stanford? I answer this question in part by submitting the following list of Stanford "firsts," excised from my chapter "End of the Line."


First Justice of the Peace in Michigan City, California.

Selected to be a Republican presidential elector at Chicago in 1860
