ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The Story of the Rockefeller Foundation," by Raymond B. Fosdick. Fosdick's book on the Rockfeller Foundation is, a work of the first importance and in kind almost unique. Fosdick's book is written by an ex-president of the foundation and naturally lacks some of the evaluative edge that an informed outsider might have given the story. An objective attitude is that taken by Abraham Flexner's Funds and Foundations. Flexner comes as near to being a professionally trained critic of foundations as one now have and aside from the contributions of E. R. Embree and E. C. Lindeman in years past, his essays stand almost alone in the field.
