Here's a biographical profile of Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., a fashionable dresser whose starched and pressed stiff-collared shirts, double-breasted suits, spats and a pearl tie pin gave him the appearance of a dandy, of a playboy. But Sloan, who built General Motors into the largest corporation in the world through hard work and vision, and devoted the same zeal to philanthropy, had no time for play. Working with another GM executive, Charles Kettering, he helped establish the world-renowned Sloan Kettering Institute for Cancer Research. His is a story of achievement, success and philanthropy at their very best.
