15 Keller, David N. Cooper Industries, 1833-1983.

Octavo, navy blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xii, 387 pp. Very Good+, with light edgewear, in a like dust jacket. “Keller has written an excellent, unusual business history. It is actually a series of mini-business histories and overall is a most interesting story of the growth of a great segment of American industry -- primarily engines and hand tools -- from the inventions and entrepreneurship of individuals dating back to the early 19th century. He has done a remarkable job of weaving all these stories together in order to tell the ultimately bigger story of the growth and diversification of Cooper. He emphasizes the American free enterprise values and system which have made our industrial growth possible and are the nation's strength. He has put all his stories in the proper national historical framework, economic and political. The book is obviously carefully researched and makes a real contribution to business history.”

Octavo, turqoise cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 159 pp. Fine, in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: The Way It Happened, written by one of the elder statesmen of the savings and loan business in the United States is a fascinating view of this important business from its early days, through its growth, to its currently dynamic position in the economy of contemporary America. Oscar R. Kreutz has written The Way It Happned from his personal experience, not merely from objective observation. He began his study of the savings and loan business in late 1922 and became actively involved in early 1923. When Mr. Kreutz writes about such subjects as the slow-moving days o the ‘20s, the Great Depression, constituionality of Federal chartering, the Los Angeles Bank and Long Beach Federal affair, he knows whereof he speaks because he was there. When Mr. Kreutz writes about management methods that produce sound growth, his record speaks for his qualifications. He organized an association when he was onlyu 25 years old. He was a founding director of a Federal Home Loan Bank in 1932 and later senoir vice president of another. He held key positions with the Federal Home Loan Bank Board in Washington for ten years. Currently Mr. Kreutz is chairman of the board of First Federal Savings and Loan Association of St. Petersburg, Florida, which grew more than $600 million after he joined it in 1953.
