Owen D. Young (1874-1962) rose from poor New York farmboy to preeminence as chairman of General Electric and respected international financial statesman. This stately and untroubled biography by his daughter and son-in-law describes Young's intelligence, energy, integrity and serenity. This is the story of an era which, despite wars and depression, did produce leaders devoted to family, community and nation.
