One of the most gifted actors of the 1930s and 1940s, John Garfield is too little remembered today. His gritty, true-to-life performances in 35 films, including "Body and Soul," which was one of the first movies to raise the ugly specter of race relations in the United States, and in 16 Broadway productions were all highly acclaimed. This generously illustrated work examines the actor's personal and professional life, recounting a bygone era of Hollywood and American history.

Garfield was once home to the Lenni Lenape, a tribe within the Algonquin Nation of Native Americans. Later, the Revolutionary War touched the area when many British soldiers entered the district in pursuit of Washington's army. After the war, farmers prospered as the fertile land of the river valley produced abundant crops that were shipped down the Passaic River to markets in New York City. In the late 1800s, as cities lying across the river industrialized, Garfield's farms gave way to mills, a trolley and railroads built lines through town, and soon the soaring population attracted a variety of small businesses. In Garfield, some two hundred vintage photographs, most of which have never before been published, reveal the nature, culture, and character of a community that has been named the City of Champions. Included are views of the local schools, churches, markets, and police and fire departments, as well as many interesting local residents.

Garfield finds life as ruler of the house turned upside down when his owner, Jim, adopts Odie, a sweet but dimwitted dog, and campaigns to get Odie out of his life, but when the hapless canine vanishes, Garfield sets out to rescue the pooch.
The ambitious self-made man who reached the pinnacle of American politics—only to be felled by an assassin's bullet and to die at the hands of his doctors James A. Garfield was one of the Republican Party's leading lights in the years following the Civil War. Born in a log cabin, he rose to become a college president, Union Army general, and congressman—all by the age of thirty-two. Embodying the strive-and-succeed spirit that captured the imagination of Americans in his time, he was elected president in 1880. It is no surprise that one of his biographers was Horatio Alger. Garfield's term in office, however, was cut tragically short. Just four months into his presidency, a would-be assassin approached Garfield at the Washington, D.C., railroad station and fired a single shot into his back. Garfield's bad luck was to have his fate placed in the care of arrogant physicians who did not accept the new theory of antisepsis. Probing the wound with unwashed and occasionally manure-laden hands, Garfield's doctors introduced terrible infections and brought about his death two months later. Ira Rutkow, a surgeon and historian, offers an insightful portrait of Garfield and an unsparing narrative of the medical crisis that defined and destroyed his presidency. For all his youthful ambition, the only mark Garfield would make on the office would be one of wasted promise.
