MELLON An American Life

by | Read by John H. Mayer

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Andrew Mellon spent his remarkable life in the Pittsburgh area, where from the late 1800s into the next century he dominated banking, industry, and government policy through his financial expertise and wealth. He mingled with U.S. presidents and industry big shots, accrued vast amounts of real estate through his mortgage endeavors, raised successful sons, and worked for philanthropic causes, yet he never achieved personal happiness. Narrator John Mayer has a distinct newsreel-announcer style, befitting this biography. He provides an inviting grandfatherly tone throughout as he describes Mellon's personal and professional highs and lows, his somber personality and lifestyle, and his drive for enormous success.
