He was awarded the Franklin Medal in 1926. Rea became President of the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1913. As head of the PRR system employing 250,000 men, he became one of the three or four dominating powers in American transportation. Rea was considered largely responsible for many features of the Esch-Cummins Act, whereby the railroads were returned to private control in 1920 after World War I. Samuel Rea was a member of the exclusive South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club, whose earthen dam failed in May 1889, causing the Johnstown Flood. After the flood, Rea removed to Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, to an estate called "Waverly Heights," designed by architect Addison Hutton. Waverly Heights later became a lifecare community in Gladwyne. Samuel Rea retired as President of the Pennsylvania Railroad system in 1925 at the age of 70, having served as President from 1913 to 1925. He served as President of the Long Island Rail Road, a PRR subsidiary, from 1923 to 1928. Rea died in March 1929.ConditionNeedless to say, this is a genuine original, period piece, not a copy or reproduction.
