Synopsis: Hungry days and nights, winters without heat, schoolboy taunts at his broken English, young Edward Bok fared no better than many immigrants to the United States late in the 19th century. Some twenty-five years later he was a voice of authority in the American home, the friend of four Presidents and of leading statesmen, inventors, and authors. A journalist of the highest order, as editor of The Ladies' Home Journal he raised circulation to a record two million. In its pages, readers received professionally designed house plans, quality art, music, and fiction, as well as information on baby care and all facets of homemaking. Over great Opposition Bok helped to effect safe patent medicine laws and he campaigned for cleaner, more sanitary cities. "Go to it, you Dutchman," encouraged President Theodore Roosevelt. Edward Bok did just that and found substance in the American dream.
