The February 1968 Official Guide shows the New York headquarters at 120 Broadway; by August 1971 the headquarters functions had been moved to Omaha and there was no New York address other than an off-line sales office typical of any Western railroad. In 1986 Drew Lewis became President and CEO of the Union Pacific Corporation, succeeding the Omaha-based John Kenefick, and became Chairman in 1987, remaining as such until 1997. During this period he established a Bethlehem headquarters near his home, apparently because he wanted a headquarters in the East and placing it in Bethlehem would save him a long commute to New York. If someone can find a Guide from that period it might be interesting to know just where it was. (Or the Union Pacific tech society in Omaha may know.)
