new and hot in New York on the
Creative Hot Line from Polly Guerin
The History Press is pleased to introduce the new title:
Dynasty of New York
Peter Cooper believed that he owed a debt to the city that
had made him a rich man. During the nineteenth century, he
made his fortune in industry and his name in politics, and
he always felt a strong compulsion to give back to New York.
His greatest achievement was the establishment of The Cooper
Union, which allowed students from all walks of life to
study science and art and is still providing those
opportunities today. Cooper instilled this sense of
obligation in his children and his business partner and
son-in-law, Abram Hewitt. Abram�s daughters�remarkable women
ahead of their time�fulfilled their grandfather�s dream of
opening a museum, which became the Cooper-Hewitt National
Design Museum, today part of the Smithsonian Institution.
Discover this amazing story of wealth and generosity,
politics and integrity and family and community that could
have only unfolded in New York. BOOK AVAILABLE
at local book stores including Barnes & Noble and at
