Peter M. Ascoli is on the faculty of Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies in Chicago. He taught at Utah State University and later served as director of development for Chicago Opera Theater and Steppenwolf Theater Company. He is the grandson of Julius Rosenwald and lives in Chicago, Illinois."Peter Ascoli has written a sensitive biography of his grandfather, Julius Rosenwald. What we see is a very modest, successful business leader/philanthropist whose skill and generosity merit his recognition as one of our preeminent citizens at the advent of the twentieth century." -- Bill Gates Sr.
