BY ROKKKT TAI.I.EV SKA Snvii-e Writer (CopyrlglH, 1532. NEA SorvlK. CIUCAOO.—The crown prince of ll-.e insull empire of public i:tililie3.' which had spread over 32 stales and was constantly expan=in?, was 32- year-old Samuel Insull, Jr. He was Eiunuel Insull's only child. Before him lay the task of adding I Uio remaining links to the nat!on- v;ldc super-power chain his 13-year- old father had started. A lot remained to 02 don?, for a dream as ImmenEi: as Samuel Insnll's was too ' much for one lifetime. In t'r.e rush 10 acquire tr.em, the scattered r.nlls i of tlw Tnsull system had never teen ^ properly integrated; younn Insull would have to hook all ol them together. If the job proved tco much for two lifetimes, there was "Jamii;! Insull III, now an infant. It is .11?- nificant that on Ihe day Samuel In- tull III was born old Samuel In- tull I ordered flags flown from all his plants and buildings. It savored of ihe progression of a dynasty. Though only a f?w year.? out of college, Samuel Insull, Jr.. had already made (rood. He was vice chairman of his father's three great Chicago operating companies—Commonwealth Edison, People's Gas and Public Service of Northern Illinois. He was vice chairman of the vast Middle West Utilities Company, and president of Insull Utility Investments and Corporation Securities. Ins.. the mighty investment trusts that topped t' lc Insull financial pyramid. Chicagoans tell yon that young Insull was a competent yonn^ man. But. like everybody else in the Instill organization, r.e dominated ty his father. Samuel Insull was the autocrat of al! his enterprises. In personal characteristics, there «-t>» little resemblance between fa- many in i ther and son. Old Samuel Insull Accepted, was feared, rather than liked; h? vas brusque and overbearing; his , Vigil position commanded him a 1 1 place [in society that liis personal- V itv never could have won. On the other hand, young Samuel Insul wns quiet and mrxlest; he was courteous to those both above and be- lox him and anybody in Chicago will tell you that he was evtry inch r. gentleman. Though papular and welcome, the younger Instills played little part in society. They hated ostentation; when they married in 1920 they could have hac the most brilliant wedding in Chicago's history, but they chose a simple home ceremony attended by less than two dO2en guests. ' Nautical Hcmc The young Insulls maintained nn apartment on Lake Shore Drive for town use: and 12 miles from Chicago they tad a country home which, characteristically enough, they called "Simple House." It sat upon an island in an artificial lake, and was accessible only uy niDtor- boat. Tiie home was constructed ai, the water's edge in the fashion of a shin, with portholes for winiow.s. Nautical maps lined the walls and one room contained an escelhnl marine library. Samuel lusuli. Jr., was born in Chicago in 1SXW. was graduated fron: Yale in 1921 and was given his firs! job in the statistical department of Middle West Utilities Comyanv In 1922. Eight years ago the elder Insull gave the EOH a group of dilapidated Indiana properties ani told him to do something about them. Chicago's Li Salle slreet bankers were amused; the •f.A man apparently hnd given t'r.e boy an industria' plaything to break. In a few years your.g insull had presented his father with a prosperous group o: utilities. Instill, Jr., was president o' Chicago's United Charilies and vice chairman of Governor Em merson's Commission on Unem Dloyment Relbf. In January. IP32 he was awarded the Junior C.'am ber of Commerce gold medal fo the man under 35 who had formed the most outstanding' far vice to Chicago in the pravlon year. His wife was the former Mis Adelaide Pierce, daughter of an oV Chicago family, graduate of Smit College and a Junior Leaguer. Sh remained in Chicago when her hits band went to Paris to join his par en U recently.
