Baruch: My Own Story
Baruch: My Own Story
By Bernard M. Baruch
Holt, 1957, 337 pp

As Mr. Baruch observes, it is not easy to compress into one volume "a narrative that begins with the Reconstruction period and extends past the splitting of the atom." This first volume of his autobiography deals chiefly with the years before the First World War--his boyhood in South Carolina and New York, and his experiences in Wall Street.
