Biography of Henry Pomeroy Davison (1867 - 1922) banker and chairman of the American National Red Cross War Council "...a small-town boy made good. He was an accomplished banker and millionaire…a visionary who hoped to create a world where peace could be maintained…His biographer, Thomas Lamont, subtitled his book "The Record of a Useful Life," but this is too modest. A better choice would be "The Record of an Admirable Man." He accomplished much, both as a financier and as an administrator of the American Red Cross." - this biography by Lamont is the best source on his life, quoting Sue C. Patrick in the ANB.
