Only in America: From Holocaust to National Industry Leadership
Landing in Manhattan penniless and alone, William Ungar parlayed a job on a factory assembly floor into a business which eventually became one of the Fortune Five Hundred largest privately owned companies. National Envelope Corporation, with 3,500 employees and 17 plants, is preeminent in its industry. The methods Ungar used to found, nurture, and expand the company through boom and recession in a famously competitive arena constitute a superlative case study in management, finance, and imaginative entrepreneurship. Equally fascinating are the insights National Envelope's story provides into the sweep of American business history over the last half-century.
