American Philosophical Society
King of the Alley: William Duer, Politician, Entrepreneur, and Speculator, 1768-1799
Robert F. Jones
Hardcover (no d.j.)
William Duer belonged ot the middle ranks of those who led Am. to success in her struggle for independence, standing just behind such men as John Jay & Robert R. Livingston. Duer, as a member of the N.Y. State Convention & the Continental Congress, as Sec. to the Board of Treasury under the Confed. & Assist. to the Sec. of the Treasury when the fed. govt. was organized, had a role in all the significant changes which occurred during the revolutionary period. Yet interspersed with his public career was his career as a stock speculator, land promoter, army contractor, & merchant. Duer never tired of trying to combine public office with private profit. This is the first full scale study of Duer’s entire carreer, although, due to lack of material about his personal life, it should not be taken as a biography.
