KIRKUS REVIEW

Crusader, reformer, with civic consciousness tells of his life in bettering politics, education, and the problems with which he had to contend. Of his family life, years at Harvard, where he met Teddy Roosevelt, with whom he sided in New York, and of his early years in law, from which he emerged into the Good Government clubs, the National Self Government Committee, the Junior Republics, and many other good works groups, he writes, at 84, with a still youthful enthusiasm, chronicling successes and failures with good nature. For civic minded particularly.
