Two Distinguished Texans
JAMES STEPHEN HOGG: A Biography
By ROBERT C. COTNER
JIM HOGG was a man of many professions-printer, lawyer,
politician, statesman, oil magnate-but in every relationship he
was always the same warm human personality. He retained this
quality after his election to the highest state office, becoming
known as "the people's governor." The influence of his public
service and his benefactions is still evident.
In this absorbing biography the author dramatically presents
the varied activities of Hogg's public life and the heart-warming
course of his personal life. Cotner, assistant professor of history
at the University of Texas, also edited The Addresses and State
Papers of James Stephen Hogg.
WILL CLAYTON: A Short Biography
By ELLEN CLAYTON GARWOOD
WILL CLAYTON has been referred to by several observers as
"the architect of the Marshall Plan." He also won renown as the
directing genius of the largest cotton-marketing firm in the
world-Anderson, Clayton &g Co.
The author, Clayton's eldest daughter, has had the rare chance
to view her subject at close range, especially during his most
active years in business and government. From her biography
emerges the picture of a man-son, husband and father, business-
man and statesman-whose measure should serve as strong encour-
agement for those who would serve their country and their world
with equally intelligent devotion.
