About the Author
Praise For Stuart Symington: A Life (Missouri Biography Series #1)…
"Stuart Symington parlayed his personal charm, social and political connections, and excellent organizational skills to claim a succession of important posts in business, government and politics. His story is as fascinating as it is complicated, and James C. Olson tackles the Herculean task of sorting it all out. This well-crafted book provides the first comprehensive portrait of Symington and his multifaceted career. The writing is clear and to the point. The research is impressive. Olson's access to personal papers still in the hands of the family afforded him valuable insights about Symington and his actions. Stuart Symington: A Life is a fascinating read."—William E. Foley
