Patriarch : George Washington and the new American nation by Richard Norton Smith( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When George Washington agreed to take on the presidency of his new nation, he inspired gratitude and adulation on a scale almost impossible to imagine today. In the years that followed, he would need every ounce of his countrymen's affection as he presided over a government threatened by internal dissension and foreign war. This is the story of Washington under political siege, a trial no less demanding than the Revolutionary War. George Washington emerges in these pages

The Colonel : the life and legend of Robert R. McCormick, 1880-1955 by Richard Norton Smith( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most of his remarkably colorful career, Robert R. McCormick was the strong, strident voice of Chicago, America's Second City. From the 1920s through the mid-1950s he was the owner, editor, and personification of the Chicago Tribune, which under his leadership grew to become the most widely read daily in the United States. To his admirers he was the unbending champion of Republican values, the scourge of bleeding-heart liberals, an emblem of the Old Order in the age of the New Deal. To his detractors he was "Colonel McCosmic", a dangerous demagogue whose exploitation of a powerful news medium to his own political ends was the flagrant abuse of a public trust. Both were right

On his own terms : a life of Nelson Rockefeller by Richard Norton Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive life of one of the most complex and compelling figures of the twentieth century, this biography draws on thousands of newly available documents and interviews, including Rockefeller's own unpublished reminiscences. Grandson of oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, Nelson coveted the White House from childhood. Before he was thirty he had helped his father develop Rockefeller Center and his mother establish the Museum of Modern Art. At 32 he was Franklin Roosevelt's wartime coordinator for Latin America. As New York's four-term governor he set national standards in education, the environment, and urban policy. The charismatic face of liberal Republicanism, Rockefeller championed civil rights and health insurance for all. Three times he sought the presidency ... arguably in the wrong party. At the Republican National Convention in San Francisco in 1964, locked in an epic battle with Barry Goldwater, Rockefeller denounced extremist elements in the GOP, a moment that changed the party forever. But he could not wrest the nomination from the Arizona conservative, or from Richard Nixon four years later. In the end, he had to settle for two dispiriting years as vice president under Gerald Ford. Here, historian Richard Norton Smith re-creates Rockefeller's improbable rise to the governor's mansion, his politically disastrous divorce and remarriage, and his often surprising relationships with presidents and political leaders from FDR to Henry Kissinger. From the deadly 1971 prison uprising at Attica and unceasing battles with New York City mayor John Lindsay to his son's unsolved disappearance, the punitive drug laws that bear his name, and the much-gossiped-about circumstances of his death, Nelson Rockefeller's was a life of astonishing color, range, and relevance ...

In On His Own Terms, fourteen years in the making, Smith draws on thousands of newly available documents and some two hundred interviews, including his subject's own unpublished reminiscences. Grandson of oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, Nelson coveted the White House from childhood. "When you think of what I had," he once remarked, "what else was there to aspire to?" Before he was thirty he had helped his father develop Rockefeller Center and his mother establish the Museum of Modern Art. At thirty-two he was Franklin Roosevelt's wartime coordinator for Latin America. As New York's four-term governor he set national standards in education, the environment, and urban policy. The charismatic face of liberal Republicanism, Rockefeller championed civil rights and health insurance for all. Three times he sought the presidency--arguably in the wrong party. At the Republican National Convention in San Francisco in 1964, locked in an epic battle with Barry Goldwater, Rockefeller denounced extremist elements in the GOP.
