Larry Haeg is former executive vice president of corporate communications for Wells Fargo & Company and a former broadcast journalist.
I first read about the Northern Pacific Corner when I was ten years old. When I opened my office on January 1, 1962, I put on the wall a framed copy of the New York Times of May 10, 1901, describing the fateful prior day. Larry Haeg now tells the full story, and I enjoyed every word of it.
