Ralph Steiner, 1950
Ralph Steiner, 1950
Charles B. Randall, the president of the Inland Steel Co., poses for a Ralph Steiner portrait characteristic of the depictions of business executives that have helped define Fortune photography over the years.

Though the magazine's editors selected a different Steiner portrait of Randall for Fortune's November 1950 issue, their caption is mostly transferable: "Despite his faintly old-fashioned appearance, the man holding the safety goggles [Randall] was always regarded as a comer at Inland Steel."

NEXT: Herman Landshoff, 1951
