Review quote

"[Mr. Hellman] has a way with facts that makes even a list of names absorbing. Wafted along by his flair for the bizarre, we almost unwittingly acquire a history of the institution, its directors, detractors, acquisitions, vicissitudes, and an account of its considerable contribution to knowledge."-Christian Science Monitor "YMr. Hellman has a way with facts that makes even a list of names absorbing.
