Biography by a close friend of many years
The story of the Rockefeller Foundation by Raymond B Fosdick( Book )

45 editions published between 1946 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its original publication in 1952, Fosdick's book has been the single most reliable treatment of one of the most important philanthropies in the United States and indeed the world. Fosdick served as president of the foundation for twelve years, from 1936 to 1948, when it was the largest grant-making endow-ment in the world. As Steven Wheatley notes in his valuable new introduction, in part The Story of the Rockefeller Foundation was intended as an instrument of institutional self-defense. When it was written, the foundation community was under mounting political attack from the right, and the book was meant to help balance the Scales by cataloging the foundation's good works. As a deliberate self-portrait, the book conceals as much as it reveals, while in the process it reveals a good deal about the author. Fosdick sees politics, like bureaucracy, as perhaps an avoidable problem and not an inevitable consequence of foundation activity. He sees foundations as engaging in the application of scientific, tech-nical, and organizational solutions to public problems through a ""venture cap-ital"" approach to discovering how to resolve them. Fosdick's ""higher ground"" approach became established philanthropic practice far beyond the Rockefeller Foundation. Consequently, this volume is significant as an institutional history as well as a charter for American foundations."--Provided by publisher

American police systems by Raymond B Fosdick( Book )

20 editions published between 1920 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a reprint of the 1920 publication. The book is based upon personal study of the police in practically every city in the United States with a population exceeding 100,000, and in many communities of lesser size. In all, seventy-two cities were visited. The author takes to task the police of the early twentieth century for anti-labor union attitudes and operations but is himself guilty of anti-Negro, anti-alien bias -- the latter somewhat surprising since he is so outspoken an admirer of the German, French and English police. His comparisons of Euro pean and American crime rates, despite the sorry state of crime statistics then and now, stand up quite well -- as do his some, what superficial analyses of the reasons for the differences they show. The author also had an opportunity to follow up certain lines of research in London and Paris, so that the comparisons between European and American conditions occurring in the book are based upon the latest information available at that time
