Napoleon of New York: Mayor Fiorello La Guardia
H. Paul Jeffers (au)
Provides a fresh perspective of La Guardiaís life & mayoralty by contrasting the publicís benevolent image of him that has lasted through 7 decades with a complex & cunning politician who was as tough & unforgiving as the city he governed. As he took office on Jan. 1, 1934, he found a city mired in the depths of the Great Depression & burdened by a corrupted govít. When he retired at the end of 1945, he left a N.Y. that was revitalized & optimistic, & a Republican that was beloved by the Democratic citizens. La Guardia forged a model for good govít. that cares for its people whatever their race or creed. Contrasts the carefully cultivated, amusing personality that La Guardia showed to an adoring public & the tough administrator known to City Hall insiders. Photos.
