Little Journeys to the Homes of Great Businessmen
Elbert Hubbard describes the homes of authors, poets, social reformers and other prestigious people, reflecting on how their surroundings may have influenced them. These short essays are part biography and part pontification of Hubbard's opinion of the subject and their work.
In this volume he reflects on the lives of great businessmen active chiefly in England and the US. Included are Robert Owen, James Oliver, Stephen Girard, Mayer A. Rothschild, Philip D. Armour, John J. Astor, Peter Cooper, Andrew Carnegie, George Peabody, A. T. Stewart, H. H. Rogers, and James J. Hill. (Summary by Lucy Perry and Availle)
