Subject: "Palace Coup" Which Ousted Pevler
Another railroad list today carried a post which mentioned the N&W's
"palace coup of 1970," which ousted Pevler and brought Fishwick back from the
D&H to Roanoke as President of the railroad. The intimation was that the
coup occurred when Pevler let it be known he was recommending someone from
outside the N&W as his replacement in the president's chair.
What were the details, and who were the players? And whom did Pevler
intent to recommend?
