Flagler: Rockefeller Partner and Florida Baron

From reviews of the first edition: 'A succinct and informed account of [Flagler's] leadership in transforming Florida's economy.'--'American Historical Review''An important contribution to the understanding of Standard Oil's extended partnership and how the personal desire of Flagler led to the early development of Florida's Atlantic Coast.'--'The Historian'Henry M. Flagler (1830-1913), the ambitious Gilded Age tycoon who designed and built much of Florida's fashionable east coast, rode to success on the rails. As John D. Rockefeller's closest adviser in the 1870s, Flagler helped assemble the Standard Oil empire. In this thoroughly researched biography, Akin shows that Flagler understood early in his career that cheap freight rates determined industrial profits. Portraying Flagler as an aggressive entrepreneur, Akin documents his shrewd negotiations to obtain reduced rates, rebates, and drawbacks from the railroads, thus assuring Standard Oil's national domination over oil transportation costs. Flagler drove himself as hard as he drove a bargain, obsessed with the desire to create a monument to himself that he called 'my domain.' His legacy was no less than modern Florida. In 1885, at the age of fifty-five, he turned his attention away from Standard Oil and began construction of the Ponce de Leon luxury hotel in St. Augustine, the city where he had honeymooned with his second wife. Realizing he could never fill its rooms unless better transportation with the North was available, he embarked on the second railroad venture of his lifetime, creation of the Florida East Coast Railway. Flagler's resort empire eventually included The Breakers in Palm Beach and the Royal Palm in Miami; his Atlantic coast railroad extended all the way to Key West, an engineering achievement that was called the 'eighth wonder of the world.' By the beginning of the twentieth century, Flagler dominated not just the resort and railroad industries in Florida but steamship and agricultural operations, too. Florida politicians gave his projects preferential treatment, even changing the state's divorce law so he could marry for a third time. Woven into this biography are details about Flagler's family, personality, three marriages, alienation from his only son, and devotion to the Presbyterian church--copy that fueled society gossip columns from New York to Palm Beach for decades. Edward N. Akin, author of Mississippi: An Illustrated History and other works on southern history, taught at Mississippi College in Clinton. His biography of Henry Flagler won the 1985 Phi Alpha Theta manuscript prize.

A Gold Diggers Guide (How to Get What You Want,...

zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

A Self-Help book for single, financially savvy women; It outlines how to dress, present yourself, what subjects to get educated in, and what type of places to visit in order to meet and attract wealthy men. It not only gives pointers on how to get financial favors from your suitors without giving IT up but it also gives pointers on how to make the money you accumulated work for you in the future. The Author (Baje Fletcher) shares the lessons she's learned over the years and inspires women around the globe to never lose sight of their goals. Gold Digging or GOAL Digging? You decide. Receiving a great deal of publicity for her new book, A Golddigger's Guide, successful CEO and author Baje Fletcher schools aspiring women on how to play the game to get what they want. On the rough road to Hollywood, countless beauties searching for fame and fortune become overwhelmed by the seedy advances of self-proclaimed 'powerful men' who promise to make them a household name. Such men include sleazy executives, producers, entertainers, sports stars and even corporate professionals who prey on unsuspecting, beautiful women naïvely ready to 'do anything for fame.' When these men get to star model and author Baje Fletcher however, the game gets flipped on them and she's taking no prisoners in the process. Having been there and done that, or at the very least, observed the effects such 'poor choices' have had on other women, Baje is turning the tables and making a profit She wants to teach you how she does it as well. The multi-faceted Baje is in the process of shopping her reality show based off A Golddigger's Guide and is preparing to write her second book. She credits her tireless work ethic to being 'Brooklyn-born and Jamaican-raised,' as her upbringing taught her the value of perseverance, hard work and being resilient through challenges. 'If everything I have today is taken away from me, I know how to pick myself up and start all over again because I came from nothing.' Baje concludes, 'Everything I have now is a blessing. I'm a hard worker and thank God I'm able to do what I love for a living.' Story By: L. Raquel Boone of Jadore Magazine Her book's called A Gold Digger's Guide. She teaches 'apprentices' how to get gifts from men without falling in love. The author, actress ('Paris Hilton's My New BFF'), music video dancer (most recently, Kanye's 'Love Lockdown'), and entrepreneur aims to teach 'how to get what you want, without giving it up.' You know: it. 'You don't ever tell him up front that you're not going to sleep with him and never meet alone or in secluded areas,' Fletcher says. 'It's about using your mind and planning ahead.' Fletcher's house, Bentley, college degree, and collection of Gucci and Louis Vuitton purses have been financed by the great men of Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach. Fletcher called South Florida home in 2007 and 2008, and she stopped by our newsroom last week. After the jump, her favorite local places to pick up sugar daddies: Cugini Grille & Martini Bar 'In Delray, the men are mature, focused, and goal-oriented. I can learn things from them, like business etiquette. There are always Bentleys and Rolls-Royces around Cugini, and there's nice jazz music playing down the block.' The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa 'It's a hotel that has a couple of lounges attached where yachts sail right up to you -- literally, you can step right off a yacht and step right in the party, which is often outside.' - Story by Lisa Gartner of New Times News
