Summary
"On the eve of the great crash of 1929, George A. Hormel retired to become chairman of the board of Geo. A. Hormel & Co. (Hormel Foods corporation), and his son, Jay C. Hormel, became president of the company. George A. noted that the company's net worth had more than doubled between his retirement (Jay's promotion) in 1929 and the writing of this autobiography in 1946. He stated that, with this memoir, his primary interest was the human aspect of business--human concerns--and the obligations to the human concerns from the industrialist's standpoint. These are the considerations that relate to being responsible in the world. He explained, "That is why I have written this book--no small job at my age (86 years) for one who has been anything but a writin' man."-- back cover
