Stories by Steve Massey * Illustration by Daniel Marsula

Douglas Danforth's tenure as CEO of Westinghouse was marked by increased attention to shareholder value, as he worked to boost earnings and the stock price. In his private life, he attended to business details as well, keeping a farm in Washington County to sell Christmas trees and raise llamas (pictured here in 1987), and becoming chairman of the local business group that purchased the Pirates from the Galbreath family to keep the team from leaving town.
