Daniel Willard

Daniel Willard was a railroad executive best known as the president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) from 1910 to 1941. He served on or headed several government railroad commissions in World War I and appeared on the cover of ''Time'' magazine in 1932 due to his part in negotiating wage cuts in the Great Depression.

Popularly known as "Uncle Dan," he established the B&O's reputation as a public-minded and innovative railroad. He is also remembered in Baltimore as a trustee (and from 1926 to 1941, chairman of its board) of the Johns Hopkins University.

Willard, Ohio (originally Chicago Junction) was renamed in his honor in 1917. Provided by Wikipedia
