Notes

First and sole edition, first printing, presentation copy from Gibson's widow Helen Whitney Gibson to Kate Davison, inscribed and dated 2 June 1952. This is the privately printed autobiography of the American businessman, bank president, and Chairman of the American Red Cross during World Wars I and II. It was published by his widow Helen Whitney Gibson one year after his death in 1950; the print run is unknown but is likely to have been very small.
