About Henry Adams

He had a close relationship with his grandfather, and former United States president, John Quincy Adams. Adams worked as a private secretary for his father for many years, accompanying him on his travels. Outside of his work with his family, Adams was a well-known political journalist. His autobiography, The Education of Henry Adams, was claimed to be one of the best works of nonfiction written in the 20th century.
