The Life & Legacy of Harry Guggenheim

August 21, 2023

Harry Frank Guggenheim was a groundbreaking American icon with deep ties to the Charleston area.  In his book “The Business of Tomorrow: The Visionary Life of Harry Guggenheim, From Aviation and Rocketry to the Creation of an Art Dynasty,” Smillie brings to light Guggenheim’s fascinating story in the first-ever biography of the legendary entrepreneur, technologist, and social impact investor. Guggenheim launched businesses and foundations that would have a profound generational impact on this country and beyond. A flawed but brilliant man, he was the confidante to five U.S. presidents and a key financial force behind commercial aviation and space exploration, two innovations that catapulted the nation into the future.

Join Mr. Smillie as he shares the story of Harry Frank Guggenheim at this special event, to be held on September 21, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at The Daniel Island Club, 600 Island Park Drive, Daniel Island. Tickets are $20 each, which includes light hors d’oeuvres and non-alcoholic beverages. A cash bar will also be available. Tickets that include a copy of Mr. Smillie’s book “The Business of Tomorrow” are $45 each.
