In Full: "Dear Sir: Herewith you will find The Report on War and Post-War Adjustment Policies [not included].with the signatures you requested. Neither my secretary nor I were able to exactly make out what your last name was so I am using your signature with its address to be certain as possible that the document reaches you. Please advise me of its receipt. May I ask that you spell out your name. I am pleased to know that you thought so well of the document as to retain it. With all good wishes, Yours very sincerely," U.S. financier Bernard M. Baruch (1870-1965), who made his fortune on Wall Street, became an influential adviser to U.S. Presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Lyndon B. Johnson. During his later years, Baruch's "presidential advisory post" was a park bench in Lafayette Square, across from the White House. Wilson had appointed Baruch to the Advisory Commission of the Council of National Defense in 1916. In April 1917, after the U.S. entered WWI (1914-1918), Baruch served as Chairman of the War Industries Board. In 1919, he represented the U.S. on the Supreme Economic Council at the Versailles Peace Conference. With the onset of WWII, Baruch advised Roosevelt on wartime economic mobilization. After the War (1939-1945), he sat on the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission. Baruch proposed the Baruch Plan for international development and control of atomic energy. Baruch had begun working on Wall Street after graduating from the College of the City of New York in 1889. Speculating in the stock market, he became a millionaire by age 30. His alma mater named its business school for Baruch in 1953. Baruch published his memoirs in two volumes, Baruch: My Own Story (1957) and Baruch: The Public Years (1960).
