Gifford Pinchot
M. Nelson McGeary


Famed conservationist and twice governor of Pennsylvania, Gifford Pinchot knew every United States President from Grant to Truman. His idol was Theodore Roosevelt, whom he served while head of the United States Forest Service and whom he emulated when he was chief executive of Pennsylvania. This first published biography (except for his autobiography) of a colorful and crusading figure covers Pinchot's entire career in his two roles as conservationist and politician.

Originally published in 1960.
