A Solid Foundation...The Life & Times of Arthur W. Perdue
 Picture
Publisher: Perdue Incorporated, 1976 Salisbury, MD.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover Signed by Arthur W. Perdue 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall INSCRIBED on half-title page: "To / Dick Moore / My editor friend / from / Art Perdue". Preface by Arthur W. Perdue. "During my first interview with Arthur W. Perdue, we reviewed only the highlights of his life, but as I left his office, I realized it would be difficult to adequately describe the attributes of this man known affectionately to so many as simply 'Mr. Arthur'. Months later I concluded that my first impression was still correct. Some people seem to experience two separate ages, one reckoned from their actual birth date and another reflected by their understanding, enthusiasm and outlook. Measured in terms of the latter, Mr. Arthur is young despite his 90 odd years. It seemed to me that the things Mr. Arthur believes in and stands for, coupled with his sincerity and warmth outweighed his many accomplishments, including the founding of a multi-million dollar business, one of the nation's largest and most successfully integrated poultry firms. The traits he had demonstrated throughout his lifetime, such as humility, faith, and self-discipline are difficult to describe fully, but they have been felt by everyone Mr. Arthur has come in contact with. These associates and many friends continue to be beneficiaries. Although he has worked with many types of people in a variety of capacities, both as an employee in his early years and later as an employer of hundreds, most of them look upon him as a co-worker rather than the boss. Perhaps the one word that can best summarize Mr. Arthur's many qualities is 'gentlemanliness, ' the trait which is most constantly demonstrated through is concern for other people. I don't feel that any publication can do justice to this man nor adequately tell what he has meant to so many people; however, this book was written to record at least a portion of not only the Perdue family history, but Mr. Arthur's own life. I feel it clearly shows that Arthur William Perdue built his business with his heart as well as his head..a solid foundation." Illustrated. x + 123 pages. This is a TALL hardcover (see photo).

ISBN: 0874137446 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Cultural Studies of Delaware and the Eastern Shore. "This biography offers a portrait of the gifted entrepreneur and business tycoon, John W. Rollins, Sr. The author places him at the center of a world dominated by global commerce, where the businessman rivals the statesman as a figure of power. Like the producer who remains invisible behind the actors onstage, the master of commerce puts into play the elements that make up the world as we know it. Though never hyped like Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, the Rollins brothers prove responsible for more fundamental changes in the business culture. Together with Henry Tippie, they created the first leveraged buyout. Without putting up any capital of their own, they raised over $60 million, creating a quantum leap in the capital they controlled. Their technique of rapid accumulation opened the floodgates for the increase of business activity in the decades that followed..Employing interviews with those who knew and worked with him, Drury Pifer depicts the world of the Rollins family where doing business has the resonance of a religious vocation. Deep commitment and years of ceaseless labor convert a dream into commercial conquest. Ebullient John and his brother Wayne discover their talent for turning derelict companies into money machines, learning as they go..Seven years after going into business, he is picked by Senator John Williams to run for Lieutenant Governor of Delaware and wins.." 267 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD condition.
