Event Details

Albert M. Greenfield, a Russian immigrant, was courted for his business acumen by mayors, senators, and presidents, including Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman. He built a multifaceted business empire that encompassed real estate, department stores, banks, newspapers, and hotels, among others. Throughout his life, Greenfield was able to cross social, religious, and ethnic boundaries to form unique business aliances among Jews, Catholics, and African Americans. Join us as veteran journalist and author Dan Rottenberg discusses the rises, falls, and reinventions of this remarkable businessman.
