1925. Illustrated with Portraits. Seitz writes in the foreword that Henry Adams once wrote a relative that he had learned the easiest way to succeed. It was to conform! This volume is devoted to sketches of individuals who did not, and made their marks. Some of the marks were black, most white, and a few red. But they were broad and plain. In days of drabness it is well to know something of unconventional success. Some of those studied in this volume include: Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, Israel Putnam, Susan B. Antony, Ethan Allen, John Ledyard, Mary Baker Eddy; David Crockett, and others. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
