Book Description
Meyer Guggenheim, a swiss immigrant founded a great American business dynasty. At their peak in the early twentieth century, the Guggenheims were reckoned among America's wealthiest, ad the richest Jewish family in the world after the Rothschilds. They belonged to our Crowd, that tight social circle of New York Jewish plutocrats, but unlike the others primarily merchants and financiers they made their money by extracting and refining copper, silver, lead, tin, and gold. The secret of their success, the patriarch believed, was their unity, and in the early years Meyer's seven sons, under the leadership of Daniel, worked as one to expand their growing mining and smelting empire.
