ADVENTURES IN PUBLIC SERVICE by Ferdinand & Delia- Eds. Kuhn


Email this review


Eight winners of the Rockefeller Public Service Awards are dramatic witness to the fact that here are countless dedicated men and women serving in government posts who place the excitement and challenge of public responsibility ahead of wealth and renown. The eight men chosen from the many are good examples:- Sterling B. Hendricks, plant scientist; Llewellyn E. Thompson, diplomat; Hugh L. Dryden, who implements the National Aeronautics and Space Act; Colin F. Stam, a key person in tax legislation; Thomas B. Nolan of the U.S. Geological Survey; Robert H. Felix, head of the National Institute of Mental Health; Robert M. Ball, who has seen Social Security grow from a small bureau to a vast institution affecting the lives of all Americans; Richard McArdle, chief of the U.S. Forest Service. Their biographers are drawn from writers, editors, reporters, science writers, and foreign correspondents. There is a postscript which lists the qualifications for opportunities in federal service.
