Frederick Gilbert Bourne Forgotten Titan Of The Gilded Age

A Biography

Authored by Philip Selvaggio

In fewer than twenty years Frederick Bourne ascended from near poverty to being one of the wealthiest men in America. He has a direct historic connection with the Titanic disaster, the tragic death of John Lennon and the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers. He owned the finest estate on the Gold Coast of Long Island and built the tallest building in the world in Manhattan. His intellect, deep moral convictions, personal charm and business savvy brought him to the Presidency of the first multinational, multi-million dollar companies in America; the Singer Sewing Machine Company whose product planted a seed for the liberation of women throughout the world.

The success of this deeply loved father of twelve did not come about without personal tragedy. For the first time, the amazing story of this generous philanthropist, his adventures and eclectic interests-largely lost to time are brought to life in riveting detail by Author Philip Selvaggio.
