Inherited The Goodrich Transit Co. from his late father, but had a fascination for the Chicago Fire Department, and eventually served as Fire Commissioner from 1927 to 1931. Goodrich is credited with ordering the red and green lights placed on either side of the firehouses and apparatus, just like on a shipping vessel, to mimic port and starboard. To this day, Chicago continues this tradition. (Bio by K. Kruse)
