This University of Arizona web site documents the story of Fred Harvey (1835-1901) who began a partnership with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
Railway in 1878. In 1889, the Railway gave Harvey exclusive rights to manage and operate
his eating houses, lunch stands, and hotel facilities upon the Santa Fe's railroads west of
the Missouri River. The Harvey Houses took pride in their first class food, service, and
cleanliness. Exhibit includes digitized photographs from the Special Collections at the University of Arizona.
