From its founding in 1929, Railway Express Agency dominated the transportation industry until the 1960s. This history of REA coincides with the career of Klink Garrett, who began as a temporary employee in Rapid City, South Dakota, in 1934 and retired in 1973 as a senior executive and member of REA's board of directors.
