Frederick King Weyerhaeuser, eldest male of the Weyerhaeuser lumbering family's third generation, may not have matched his grandfather Frederick in fame or power, but among the progeny none was more widely known and respected-and , within the family, loved-than he was. How his talents and dedication helped make the Weyerhaeuser name synonymous with the lumbering industry and the clan one of the closest knit in the country is this book's focus. This is an intimate, detailed story of F. K. the businessman and patriarch and the life he led with his wife, Vivian O'Gara Weyerhaeuser, and their two daughters on St. Paul's Summit Avenue. Based on company correspondence and records, family letters and reminiscences, and interviews, the book is a unique, behind-the-scenes look at an influential family and its forest products company over half a century. This is the third volume in Charles Twining's biographical history of today's Weyerhaeuser Company.
