PHILIP ANSCHUTZ ON EARLY WESTERN BUSINESS LEADERS

Forbes reported that in January 2015, Phil Anschutz of Colorado published his first book: “Out Where The West Begins: Profiles, Visions and Strategies of Early Western Business Leaders.” Excerpts below:

It’s fascinating reading, though many would prefer that the Denver tycoon write about his own life. Over four decades Anschutz has built fortunes from oilfields (Anschutz Exploration Co.), railroads (Southern Pacific), telecom (Qwest Communications), sports teams (Los Angeles Kings and a third of the Lakers).

His Xanterra owns and operates lodges and restaurants at National Parks like Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. His American Museum of Western Art in Denver houses his collection of masterpieces by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, Albert Bierstadt and others.
