The several instrumentalities - waterways, highways, railroads and the vehicles used upon them, the telegraph and telephone - are spoken of collectively as the transportation system." "Emory Richard Johnson (March 22, 1864 March 8, 1950) was a United States economist who specialized in transportation issues. Johnson was born in Waupun, Wisconsin. He studied at University of Wisconsin (1888) and University of Pennsylvania (Ph. D. , 1893). He was instructor of economics at Haverford College 1893-96. He became professor of transportation and commerce at the University of Pennsylvania in 1896, and was dean of its Wharton School from 1919 to 1933. [1] He served as expert on transportation (1899) on the United States Industrial Commission, and was a member on valuation of railway property for the United States Census Bureau (190405) , and as expert on traffic on the National Waterways Commission of 1909. In 1911 he furnished a report on Panama Canal traffic, etc. , for U. S. President William Howard Taft, and in 1907 arbitrated the dispute between the Southern Pacific Company and the Order of Railroad Telegraphers. He was director of the Bureau of Municipal Research, Philadelphia, and director of the Philadelphia Maritime Exchange. He died in Philadelphia on March 8, 1950."
