Wall Street investment bankers who have built careers on reputations of integrity resent the Boeskys, Milkens, and Keatings of their professions even more than the rest of us do. This biography records the life of a man who has contributed significantly to the soundness of our nation's financial systems without contributing to that industry's scandalous headlines: Edwin L. Kennedy. Born on an Ohio farm in 1904, Edwin Kennedy viewed education as his only chance to escape from what he referred to as "restricted financial circumstances." After working his way through high school and Ohio University, teaching briefly in a junior high school, and taking graduate studies at Ohio State University, Kennedy moved on to Wall Street. Throughout a business career that began on the eve of the Great Depression in 1929, Kennedy has masterminded a wide variety of dealings, often converting adversities into opportunities, without compromising his principles. Business leaders, past and present, interviewed across the nation for this biography, invariably offered that characterization. Meanwhile, Kennedy and his wife, Ruth, a 1930 graduate of Ohio University, followed a pattern of philanthropy based on their belief that "the only things we really own in this life are those that we intelligently give away." Time and time again higher education has benefitted from their abundant generosity. Ruth's death in 1980 did not change the pattern they had established together; her husband continued to weigh what he felt certain her opinion would be whenever he made a decision. The Kennedys' story is a story of success by most measures. It is particularly distinguished by a lifetime of love and companionship betweenthem, maintaining honor in the marketplace, and a mutual commitment to supporting education.
