In the Arena

  • The Life and Times of William W. Treat

    Merle Drown

    "William Treat is the quintessential self-made man. His story is the stuff of the original American Dream. There is a whiff of Alger and Lincoln in it and more than a whiff of Franklin and Fitzgerald. As a boy growing up in Winterport, Maine, in the 1920s and 30s he knew both middle-class comfort and Depression-era instability, anxiety, and, I think it is fair to say by current material standards, even poverty. Learning of his success in the world of politics, our judicial system, and business, I was curious to discover how he rose from those roots to his working associations with world leaders and potentates." —From the Foreword by Robert J. Begiebing
