This won the Pulitzer for biography for 1944, and so I have ead it, since I am half-heartedly trying to read thoae winners. It is a workman-like study of Morse, who is not a totally admirable person, being eager for self-glorification and a "nativist" and at times a candidate of the Know Nothing Party. But if you want to know more about Morse, this is a good book to read. ( )
