Faith Is My Fortune: A Life Story Of George Pepperdine, Richard L. Clark, Jack Ward Bates

Churches of Christ Heritage Center

This memoir, dictated to the authors by George Pepperdine, is subtitled “actual experiences, business success and reverses, stewardship and philanthropy, which have proved that strong religious faith is a greater fortune, more to be desired than riches, or any other assets.” This is the story of George Pepperdine (1886-1962), founder of Western Auto Supply and, later, Pepperdine University in Southern California. Pepperdine was a noted businessman, philanthropist, and a lifelong member of Churches of Christ.
