Marathon Motor Works

The Rise and Fall of Marathon Motor Works
by D. Phillip Kaiser and Diane Kurek Kaiser
This exciting new addition to the Tennessee Room is the first book of a projected trilogy concerning the automobile manufacturing  company  known as the Marathon Motor Works and its parent company, the Southern Engine and Boiler Works, along with the men who were instrumental in its creation and its demise.  In addition to its narrative, the book features many pages of facsimile catalogs, automobile and steam engine advertisements, manuals and parts lists, and photos. It’s a fascinating story of a business that began in Jackson, TN and thrived, then died in Nashville.
