Robert Samuel Kerr: Oklahoma's Pioneer King (1896-1963)
Author - Paul William Bass
Robert Kerr fought for the common people of Oklahoma and provided benefits to the surrounding states. Early in his life he risked sharing his big dreams with others. He was a very successful risk taker in business. He was a deeply religious person who contributed regularly and generously to charitable causes. He dared to take unpopular positions on controversial issues because of his moral beliefs. He knew how to compromise on legislative concerns and when to apply pressure on others to support his causes. U.S. presidents submitted to his legislative leadership.
Although he died over a half century ago, his legacy continues and is enjoyed by a new generation largely unaware of his contributions. His life is a model for any who would dare to dream big dreams and work for the betterment of mankind. (paperback)
