Abstract:

"The Tower of Jewels is the story of a great editor, Fremont Older, of a dramatically significant newspaper, The San Francisco Bulletin ... This is also, in part, the story of a tumultuous and unrestrained city, which took crime and corruption in its stride but also experienced the joy of living, which was frequently sinful but always democratic ... The author ... remembers and describes the hopes and dreams of his generation, partly as exemplified in the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915 -- a beautiful interlude, as he pictures it, before America was caught in the First World War."--Dust jacket flap.
