He was probably America's leading industrialist, and later a key diplomatic figure at the hub of many of the most important geopolitical events before, during, and after World War II. In addition he was a philanthropist of note giving generously to his alma mater, Cornell University, and a number of other causes…Taylor won a U.S. government contract for mail pouches and related products. He quickly exploited this lucrative business and began to not only introduce innovations like the transparent "window" in envelopes through which an address is display, but to also buy up competitors. . On December 22, 1939, President Roosevelt called to ask Mr. Taylor "to take on a special mission for me." He subsequently asked Taylor to serve as the president's personal representative to Pope Pius XII. Taylor accepted the offer. Initially his direction was to prevent Italy from joining the war with Germany. Later he would be influential in urging limited bombing of Rome, and then to only specific military targets. In the summer of 1942, Taylor went on his most signifiant mission yet. He was asked to convey to the pope that the United States would win the war and there would be no peace without victory. Another accomplishment of this trip was to influence the Pope to speak out in the atrocities being perpetuated against the Jews. Taylor was also successful in persuading Franco (Spain) to not join the Axis. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 08295.190602
