Abstract:

The Deeds of My Fathers is the riveting true story of a father and a son who each started with nothing and built an empire. Generoso Pope, Sr., an Italian immigrant, arrived in New York in 1906 with just pennies. He got a job shoveling sand but eventually worked his way up to become the biggest provider of cement, just as it was becoming the key building material for New York, vital to landmarks such as Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall. Gene Pope, Jr., was his father's choice to inherit the business but was forced out by family. Penniless, he secured a loan from his godfather, mobster Frank Costello, and bought a newspaper he named the National Enquirer. The Enquirer soon became a powerful media force, peaking with the seven million copies sold of the expose on the death of Elvis.
