House chain of fast-food restaurants, Smith performed heroically in the Vietnam war, both on the ground and later in the air. In 1970, he got the idea for a streamlined fleet of airplanes, operating from a center (in FedEx's case, Memphis, Tennessee) that could deliver packages anywhere in a day. It was a difficult take-off. On its first day of operation, FedEx delivered six packages. Still, obsessed with his dream, Smith almost single-handedly pressed on - even to the

Heroes, plain folks, and skunks : the life and times of Happy Chandler : an autobiography by Happy Chandler( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The former Kentucky governor and senator is probably best known outside his home state as the commissioner of baseball who served for six years after succeeding Kenesaw M. Landis. It was during his tenure that the national pastime was racially integrated, a policy change in which Chandler was perhaps even more instrumental than Branch Rickey. But primarily because he supported Rickey, Chandler alienated some owners, and they voted him out, according to the authors. That is only one incident in an exceptionally full and busy life, chronicled here with the aid of the former editor of the Kentucky Post. Most arresting is the fact that, although a Democrat, Chandler had little liking for Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, or Alben Barkley, three of his party's heroes
An empire undone : the wild rise and hard fall of Chris Whittle by Vance H Trimble( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Whittle came out of nowhere and started with nothing; he was basically just an ambitious student from the University of Tennessee. A superb salesman, he became America's most talked about entrepreneur in media and education reform, a man with visions of the future. In 1987, before he turned forty, Chris Whittle was wealthy enough - Time Inc. bought half of his company for $185 million - to enjoy a lavish Gatsby-style life. And then his multimillion-dollar empire collapsed. Chris Whittle could sell, but he couldn't manage. He undercut his CEOs. His ego made him think he could do it all. In the end his mismanagement drove his overexpanded company to the brink of bankruptcy. Known for pulling many rabbits out of hats, Chris tried desperately in 1994 to rescue his media empire. He failed. His partners, Time Warner, Associated Newspapers of London, and the Philips Electronics conglomerate of the Netherlands, dethroned him and had a fire sale of all his entrepreneurial inventions - save one, the Edison Project, in which he still held the biggest stake. Now Chris Whittle is launching the first of the Edison schools, with Benno Schmidt managing them, and hopes to win a sizeable share of what he sees as a new $75 billion privately managed public-school industry
