Lawrence Hammond

Lawrence Hammond, (Atlas Shrugged) Earl of Hammondville Colorado, the nation's only remaining producer of quality cars; an investor in the John Galt Line. He walked away from his auto factory without a word of warning.

“The word that Lawrence Hammond had retired came when least expected, brief and sudden like the single stroke of a bell in a heavy stillness.”

—Atlas Shrugged  

“…when she heard that Lawrence Hammond had quit, she asked impassively, 'Who’s next?'”

—Atlas Shrugged  

“She knew—once word was received that Lawrence Hammond had retired—that it was useless to wait, to hope and to wonder whether his cousin, his lawyer or a committee of local citizens would reopen the plant. She knew it was time to start cutting the schedules.”

—Atlas Shrugged
