About the Author:

James W. Hilty, Professor of History and Dean of Temple's Ambler campus, has written extensively about American politics, including Robert Kennedy: Brother Protector (Temple). He has provided political commentaries for various publications, including the Philadelphia Inquirer and served as historical consultant to various news media, including C-SPAN, NBC News, NPR, and others. A Temple faculty member since 1970, Hilty also wrote the introduction to Marvin Wachman's The Education of a University President (Temple).

Review:

"[E]ntertaining and enlightening... Author Hilty was the right choice to tackle this ambitious endeavor... Aside from Hilty's colorful portrait of [Temple University founder Russell] Conwell and the Philadelphia of his time -- he was actually a New Englander -- one of the book's great joys (in addition to its many splendid illustrations) are the little facts and tidbits that pepper the text." - Jewish Exponent June 2010
