This book is signed by Henry A. Wallace, the 33rd Vice President of the United States. Vice President Wallace came from a family with a notable background in politics and agriculture. Born on October 7, 1888, in Orient, Iowa, he was the son of Henry C. Wallace and Carrie May Wallace. His father, Henry Cantwell Wallace, served as the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture from 1921 until his death in 1924 under Presidents Harding and Coolidge. This role underscored the family’s long-standing commitment to agricultural development and reform.

Wallace’s grandfather, “Uncle Henry” Wallace, was also a prominent figure in American agriculture. He was the founder of the influential farm journal “Wallace’s Farmer,” which achieved national distribution and played a crucial role in the advancement of agricultural practices and policies in the Midwest. His newspaper studied Iowa farms, pioneered crop rotation, and fertilization programs, thereby greatly increasing production yields. “Uncle Henry” died at the age of 80 in 1916, before this work on this life was published.
