This book is a sequel to my first hotel book, "Great American Hoteliers: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry" AuthorHouse 2009. It tells the fascinating and unpredictable stories of seventeen hotel pioneers who were (and are) important in the development of the hotel industry in the United States. Many of them are relatively unknown and lost in the dustbin of American history. Their biographies comprise this sequel called "Great American Hoteliers Volume 2: Pioneers of the Hotel Industry" - Stewart William Bainum (1920-2014) - Curtis Leroy Carlson (1914-1999) - Cecil Burke Day (1934-1978) - Louis Jacob Dinkler (1864-1928) - Eugene Chase Eppley (1884-1958) - Roy C. Kelley (1905-1997) - Arnold S. Kirkeby (1901-1962) - Julius Manger (1868-1937) - Robert R. Meyer (1882-1947) - Albert Pick, Jr. (1895-1977) - Jay Pritzker (1922-1999) - Harris Rosen (1939) - Ian Schrager (1946) - Vernon B. Stouffer (1901-1974) - William Cornelius Van Horne (1843-1915) - Robert E. Woolley (1935) - Stephen Allen Wynn (1942) As you will note, four of these great American hoteliers are alive and productive as I write this sequel: Harris Rosen, Ian Schrager, Robert Woolley and Steve Wynn.
