Wolper Productions is a well-known producer of movies and documentaries, but it's unclear what services Burns supplied to them. He has appeared on several documentaries and served as historical advisor on others. James MacGregor Burns (1918-2014) is a presidential biographer and leadership scholar who won the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award in 1971 for his book Roosevelt: Soldier of Freedom 1940-1945. He has studied leadership and published his findings in the books Leadership and Transforming Leadership: the Pursuit of Happiness. Burns made key contributions to leadership theory by shifting his studies away from the traits of great men and focusing on the interaction of leaders and how they collaborate for mutual benefit. Burns is Woodrow Wilson Professor (emeritus) of Political Science at Williams College and a scholar at the James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership. Lightly toned and creased. Check is torn at top. Normal bank stamps on verso and cancellation holes, some touching signature and which can be seen from the front of the check. Otherwise in fine condition.
