About Bernard Baruch
The American financier and unofficial presidential adviser Bernard
Baruch was known as the “Park Bench Statesman” for his penchant for
taking meetings on park benches. He was born in 1870 in South Carolina.
By the time he was 30, he had become a millionaire. During World War I,
Woodrow Wilson asked Baruch’s advice on economic issues, which began a
long-term relationship with the White House. He refused to become
Treasury Secretary in FDR’s cabinet, preferring his unofficial role. He
died in 1965.
