David Patterson, author of The Pinchot: A Family Saga, highlights the Pinchot family legacy. In Gilded Age, successful families forged self-made and powerful aristocracies, but history slighted a wealthy, influential family dynasty: the Pinchots. Outstandingly different from these and other business titans, this family is long overdue for recognition.
In a broad historical sweep, this book focuses on three generations of Pinchots. The Pinchot family members propounded a set of values in serving the public good that went beyond economic success, and they championed many political and social reforms. If the story of Vanderbilt, Carnegie, or Rockefeller intrigued you, this lecture is for you.
