  • The Keys to Success in Life

    As a high school student, Seymour Halpern (1913-1997), wrote letters to many notables of the day including politicians, military officers, entertainers, diplomats, artists, activists, writers, explorers, scientists, and businessmen, inquiring about the keys to their success in life. The responses were as varied and diverse as the subjects of his inquiries.
