Carter Glass A Biography [ Inscribed By Glass]


B07DN3QS6V Signed and affectionately inscribed by Carter Glass upon front free endpaper. "Here is a character composed of truth, sincerity and courage. He hates deceit and detests a lie. But this Jeffersonian Democrat possesses a rarer integrity which we call intellectual integrity. Appointed to the Banking and Currency Committee in 1904, the supreme opportunity soon came to him to be the chief architect of the Federal Reserve System. He became the great post-WWI Secretary of the treasury and won Woodrow Wilson's intimacy, trust and praise. He came to the Senate and is the most outstanding Senator Virginia has ever contributed to the nation's chief deliberative council." - Introduction. xv, [1], 519 pages. Index. Four black and white plates. Unmarked with average wear to publisher's navy blue cloth. Binding sound. Dust jacket not included. Photocopy of New York Times book review, dated May 28, 1939, laid-in. A sound signed copy of the life story of this highly-influential Virginian.
