Son of an Irish immigrant, he wanted acceptance from the ruling elite WASP/s. He never quite made it though a son became President of the United States. Alleged but not a liquor smuggler he craftily became a multi-millionaire bear on the stock market, isolationist, appeaser, movie mogul, head of the S.E.C. in the Roosevelt administration, Ambassador to the Court of St. James, anti-Semite, misogynist, womanizer, devoted father, etc. etc. You can read my take on all this and more by clicking on Mark Twain above.
