Del Webb – the man and the company he built
When his father’s business failed, Webb had to drop out of high school. He helped support his family with his carpentry skills, but his first love was baseball.
Ever wonder about this pyramid in Papago Park? It was part of Webb’s growing construction business in the 1930s.
Webb loved a challenge and his firm would build the 13-story Madison Square Garden Center atop a busy station serving 650 trains a day.
