Description

Moses Brown carried on a wide range of business activities, seeking profit as capital for humanitarian purposes. He became a reluctant participant and eventually a leader in many reform movements--crusades against slavery and war; efforts to provide education for the underprivileged, orphans, and Afro-Americans; and programs of urban redevelopment and public health.

Originally published in 1962.
