Charles Gates Dawes: A Life
by Annette B. Dunlap
“Written with verve and style, and full of new insights from untapped archives, Charles Gates Dawes: A Life will surprise scholars, impress general readers, and shed new light on how modern America came to be.” – Christopher Capozzola, author of Uncle Sam Wants You: World War I and the Making of the Modern American Citizen
Charles Gates Dawes: A Life is the first comprehensive biography of an American in whose fascinating story contemporary readers can follow the struggles and triumphs of early twentieth-century America. Ebullient and irrepressible, Dawes is most known today as vice president of the United States under Calvin Coolidge, but he also distinguished himself and his hometown of Evanston, Illinois, on the world stage with the 1925 Nobel Peace Prize. Annette B. Dunlap recounts the story of this original American who enlightened and enlivened his world.
