Abstract:
James B. Duke is a well-known name in the history of the North Carolina tobacco industry, but not many people know of his involvement with electricity. Durden recounts a less known but very risky venture in building what was, at that time, the world's largest hydrostation. The project was built in a remote Canadian region.
