Cover has some wear, soiling and tears at top of spine. Inscribed on the fep For Mr. Thomas Hildt with compliments of Earl D. Babst The author wrote "Until I reviewed my files I had cradled the thought that I had been a business man of rather few public words. the review of releases, as an executive of the American Sugar Refining Company since 1915, and as a member of the International Sugar Committee 1917-1918, rather confounds me. From them, however, I have selected those which give some of the background of the sugar industry as developed year by year, especially the effect and aftermath of the World War of 1914-1918, and have added several indicating the changes affected by it. I am venturing the thought that these excerpts may be of interest to students of the subject and possibly ton a few indulgent friends." Among the topics covered in these excerpts are: Introducing Packages, Trade-Marks and Advertising in an old industry, Demonstration of the value of large business unites in safeguarding the National sugar supply, Proposals for inter-Allied co-operation in handling food supplies, and Memoranda of 1918 submitted to the United States Government to assist in framing a definite international sugar policy.
