Michael R. Walsh, ’66, and son Nathan have written the story of a branch of law enforcement responsible for policing the railways. The Railroad Dick is the true story of a railroad detective. Railroad police officers started as private detectives hired by major companies to protect their freight from looters in the 1850s. Over time, these sleuths became part of law enforcement. Though their functions and responsibilities have diminished over the years, the railroad police officers continue to provide protection on the rails. In The Railroad Dick, father and son relive the heydays of the railroad police through the real-life story of Michael “Mickey” Walsh, a young railroad police officer struggling to balance his responsibilities at work and at home with a then-pregnant wife. Mickey’s story will inspire readers with its integrity.
