A financier and public advisor, Baruch began his career as a bond salesman in New York, becoming a millionaire by the age of thirty. He got involved in New York politics and befriended Woodrow Wilson who later appointed him to a cabinet position to mobilize for the war effort; he served on the War Industries Board and was a delegate at the postwar peace conference in Paris, as a result of which he published The Making of the Reparation and Economic Sections of the Treaty (1920). Baruch became a key advisor to Franklin Delano Roosevelt and others during the mobilization for World War II, was appointed by Truman to the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission in 1946, and published two volumes of his memoirs. Congressman Walter served in World War II and as a Representative from Pennsylvania in the seventy-third and fifteen succeeding Congresses, serving from 1933 until his death May 31, 1963. Walter also acted as chairman of the Committee on Un-American Activities.
