ABSTRACT
The article comments on security business in the U.S. The First Boston Corp. is one of Wall Street's major investment banking houses. It did $1.25 billion in securities business in 1954, a very large proportion of it for electric companies. Its privacy having been impinged on by curious Senators, the First Boston Corporation was now bared in the hearings as a group of naive New Yorkers caught in the political netherworld of the capital. The modesty, the innocence, the open-handed spirit revealed by two of the firm's officers would surety have driven any ordinary businessman bankrupt in a matter of days. INSET: Mr. Wenzell Comes to Washington.
