TitleFrom the Stacks: Western Historical Manuscript Collection--Kansas City. The William Volker and Company
AbstractWritings on William Volker have usually focused on his philanthropic activities rather than his business. Volker was an astute and hard-working businessman who expected the same of his employees. He built a successful business in home furnishings and, even with his generous donations to charity in his lifetime, the William Volker Charities Fund exceeded $15 million at the time of his death.
