Christmas keepsake from this popular motivational author of the Thirties and Forties. The author rhapsodizes on the glories of Free Enterprise, using as his objective correlative the Carnegie Steel Corporation and its long history of elevating "common labor" to the ranks of the middle class: "...they have come a long, long journey from the immigrant docks of Ellis Island. And the "light" in the valley which I see this Christmas Eve from the furnaces and converters of steel, more than any other factor, has made this rise to the dignity and independence of American citizenship possible. American industry gave them this glorious opportunity!..." A unique perspective on the vista of flaming mills along the Monongahela, which in most other accounts more closely resembled the pits of Hell than the lights of Bethlehem!
