About This Item

New York: G P Putnam's Sons, 1970. Alfred Emmanuel Smith 1873 -1944 - elected Governor of New York State - Democratic candidate for the Presidency in 1928, the first Roman Catholic to be nominated for this office by a major political party. The fact that he was defeated after one of the most scurrilous and savagely fought campaigns in American history does not lessen his importance as a trailblazer or as the prototype of the self-made men who achieved enormous political influence and power. The First Hurrah is a full-scale account of Alfred E. Smith's life and career - the absorbing story of an unusual man, a legendary figure in his own day, the politician par excellence. It is a biography that reviews an entire life with clarity and objectivity. A section of photographs provided, notes on sources, selected bibliography and an index. A bright copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.
