Research Query: Who were the largest employers in early 20th c. DC

To provide some context for a chapter in the history I'm writing about Union Station, I'm looking for information about the largest employers in Washington. In particular, I was interested in the largest private employers in 1907, when the terminal opened, and also the largest employment sites -- which government office buildings had the most workers? My initial searches didn't help much, and so I was hoping the people in this group might be able to help.
