A Time For Reflection: An Autobiography

Thursday April 2004


William E. Simon, Jr. Co-Chairman, William E. Simon and Sons

William E. Simon was the quintessential American figure of the American century: Wall Street wunderkind, treasury secretary, successful entrepreneur, U.S. Olympic Committee president, author, pioneering philanthropist, and devout Catholic.

His insightful and often humorous autobiography includes some of the diverse cast of characters with whom his life intersected. From the president and his advisors at the White House, to the highest realms of the Catholic Church, as well as celebrities, and sports figures, William Simon was involved with them all.

Bill Simon, Jr. will talk about parts of his father’s full, fascinating, and accomplished life.
