You hear ”Albright” and you think art, not steel, right? But this elusive philanthropist who built the famous Art Gallery and underwrote the Pan-American Exposition in 1901 was also an industrialist who harnessed the power of Niagara Falls and founded Bethlehem Steel! Many layers of mystery have long shrouded this private, enigmatic man. Mark Goldman tells the remarkable story of both the man and the turn-of-the-century city in which he lived. The lavishly illustrated, 150-page book will be deeply appreciated by the history buffs on your list, and the unique Bethlehem Steel blown glass ornament celebrates one of Albright’s lesser known enterprises as well as the tens of thousands of steel workers who helped build this nation.
