S&l Story

On February 2, 1991, I bought my first copy of American Heritage and thoroughly enjoyed your historical article on the banking industry in the United States. I admired it on two professional levels. First, as a Wall Street lawyer in the banking industry, I was intellectually touched by the subject matter. Second, I admired the clear, fluid writing. It is an especially pleasant and refreshing respite in my environment, where I am frequently surrounded by the opposing counsel’s brackish verbosity. Their swampy writing style results in confused, ambiguous legal product and makes me a strong advocate of your style to the thirty attorneys in my department.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
