Amon G. Carter was a Effective Mover and shaker in Fort Worth History.Aug. 11 2015
- Published on Amazon.com
Just ordering a book that I was loaned and read many years ago. Couldn't put it down. Finished it at 3:00 AM ... and had to be at my desk at 7:30 AM. Amon G. Carter was a "Larger than Life" promoter of Fort Worth. Drinking buddy of FDR.
I recommend it hugely to anyone that lives or lived in Texas. Most especially those that grew up in Fort Worth. So many things from high schools to the TCU football stadium are named for him and his contributions to the value of life in Fort Worth. He publicly stated, that he never spent money in Dallas. If he had to go to a meeting in Dallas, he brown bagged his lunch :-)
