Center For Jewish History, New York: 2007. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. Signed by Kenneth Libo. 
What was it like to grow up with all of the rights, responsibilities, and privileges accorded one of America's most outstanding families - the Lehmans of Lehman Brothers? In addition to the creme de la creme of Wall Street are New York Governor (and, later, Senator) Herbert Lehman, for whom Lehman College is named; United States Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau Jr., ; Chief Judge of New York State Court of Appeals Irving Lehman; Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morganthau; New York Congressman Jonathan Bingham; Ambassador John L. Loeb Jr.; Arthur Goodhart, the first American master of an Oxford University college; plus philanthropists and supporters of the arts too numerous to mention. What is was like to live in a rarified German Jewish world - the world of "Our Crowd" - is vividly portrayed here in the words and pictures of the descendants of Mayer Lehman, the youngest of three German Jewish brothers who came to America from Bavaria and in 1850 formed Lehman Brothers, a mercantile goods company in Montgomery, Alabama. Lots of Lehmans is a collective portrait of Mayer and Babette Lehman and their seven children - Sig, Hattie, Settie, Clara, Arthur, Irving, and Herbert - as remembered by their descendants.
