New York. Prentice-Hall. 1941. 8vo., original cloth. A very good copy. First edition, inscribed "To Fleur who has everything and too much, with affection, B M Baruch." "Passing from my husband to friends I also treasure, I begin with the most unforgettable friend in my life, the tall. tall aristocrat, Bernard Baruch, the elderly 'Elder Statesman' who, for fifty years or more, figured so importantly in the political life of the United States. Our friendship was practically father-and-daughter and though I was not officially adopted, I was taken by him into his 'family', chosen to be treated as a daughter. This privilege taught me, enlightened me, and contributed immeasurably to the fullness of my life. Bernard Baruch was my 'thought processor' and a loveable, courtly friend." "During the First World War, he was Chairman of the War Industries Board. Put in charge of all industrial mobilization by President Woodrow Wilson, he actually controlled America's entire industrial capacity."
