What kind of man was Leland Stanford? Author Roland De Wolk will tell us about the "American Disruptor: The Scandalous Life of Leland Stanford." Born in NY, Stanford followed the gold rush to California where he became a successful businessman and invested in railroads. He entered politics and became California's governor then a US Senator. He lived large while he amassed an astonishing fortune and later founded Stanford University. Author Roland De Wolk balances the accomplishments of this quintessential self-made American man with the darker aspects of his life.
