Greatest Generation is passing local leadership torch
by William George
In recent weeks three of the Twin Cities' greatest business and civic leaders -- all part of Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" -- have passed from the scene. This trio includes Edson Spencer, who built Honeywell into a great global corporation; John Cowles, leader of Cowles Media and the Star Tribune, and John Morrison, who led Norwest Corp. (now Wells Fargo) into the modern banking era.
