Who was R.E. Burger?

The other day I had an item about the future of the R.E. Burger power plant, owned by FirstEnergy. Someone wrote to ask who R.E. Burger was, as he could not find the answer on the Internet. So I wrote a message to FirstEnergy asking that question. Here, in case anyone was wondering the same thing, was the answer:

"Rudolph Eugene Burger was president of the Ohio Public Service Company from 1946 until the company merged with Ohio Edison in 1950.  Ohio Public Service constructed the first part of the Burger Plant in the late 1940s."
