A Gentlemanly Memoir

Paul Mellon did us all a favor by telling his life's story, since his father was at the center of American business and political life in the 1880s and through the 1930s. He gives us the rest of the story about Andrew, et al. Pittsburghers will find much to enjoy in this book. Even if you have never been to that fair city, chances are your life has been in some ways touched by the Mellon family, and their many interests, so why not give it a read? The Mellons were never eager for the limelight, so it is even more remarkable that Paul Mellon chose to share his reminiscences with the world at large. He takes us into the presence of some of the most influential people of the last century and shows us that, yes, they had their share of troubles, too. It's a gentlemanly memoir.
