From Library Journal:

This book chronicles the history of the Rockefeller Foundation's support of scientific research from the early 1900s until c.1945. Rockefeller hired people to travel the globe to find worthy projects; they dubbed themselves the "circuit riders," the name traveling Methodist preachers had given themselves during frontier days. Some projects were less than successful; others became landmarks, such as the discovery of penicillin. Many world-renowned scientists worked for or owed a debt to the Rockefeller Foundation. Recommended for libraries with business history and history of science collections.
