Description
 
A portrait of a great American dynasty founded by Meyer Guggenheim, and its legacy in business, technology, the arts, and philanthropy. In the early years Meyer’s seven sons worked as one to expand their growing mining and smelting empire. In the third generation, the family was a force in aviation, publishing, and horse racing. A successor wasn’t found and the great Guggenheim business enterprise crumbled. Meanwhile, in the mid-20th cent., the Guggenheims became the agents of modernism in the visual arts. After their generation, the family has produced many accomplished members, such as publisher Roger Straus II and archaeologist Iris Love. “A unique and remarkable epic story of one family’s amazing rise to prominence.” Photos.
