Business Magnate. First President of the reorganized Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad in 1895. The plaque on the door of the mausoleum bears the quote, "This is the sunset glow. The shadows will soon begin to lengthen. But if I have died to win the approbation of my contemporaries and to be of benefit to those with whom I have been associated, I can look with complacency on the signs of the closing day and so to my rest content." (Speech made by E.P. Ripley on his 70th birthday.) (bio by: David M. Habben)
