Jacket spine lightly toned, jacket edges rubbed. 1986 Hard Cover. xv, 242 pp. The Encyclopedia Britannica ascribes the following traits to the prototype Yankee trader: Self-reliant, thrifty, inventive, and enterprising. A future Britannica might well add: As exemplified by a modern venture capitalist in the person of Allen Chase. This is the saga of an independent man whose exploits at the highest levels of international finance are daily affecting out lives, and whose plans for revolutionizing energy and transportation on a global basis, many revealed for the first time in these pages, could well change the entire course of United States domestic and foreign policy. Allen Chase, twice married and divorced, escort and confidant of such beauties as Rhonda Fleming, Hedy Lamarr, Linda Christian and Ann Miller, has worked and played away from the glare of publicity, a circumstance that makes his story, finally told, especially intriguing. One of the most fascinating sections of this volume involves his founding and developing Who's Who International, surely one of this country's, and the worlds, most unique social-charitable organizations. The premise of Who's Who is simple yet profound in its implications: The more he and his affluent, success-oriented friends enjoy themselves having parties or embarking on seemingly sybaritic round-the-world excursions, the most some worthy charity benefits. To read how this group functions is to take the measure of the man, and better appreciate his professional and personal accomplishments.
