Bud Loftus: An Irish-American’s Journey is the compelling story of Bud Loftus, the son of Irish immigrants and an American success story. Settling in Philadelphia, Bud’s parents married and had six children, but Bud’s father was an alcoholic and his marriage failed. Penniless and fatherless, 5-year-old Bud and his siblings were raised on welfare. Facing a bleak future, Bud and his siblings received a free Catholic school education and it became their salvation and ticket out of poverty. Just 17 when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Bud signed up for the Marines the next day. This is an intriguing account of Bud’s family, education, and service to his country during WWII. Starting at the bottom and rising through the ranks of the FDA, Bud became a world-renowned drug manufacturing expert. His book chronicles the fascinating, heartwarming, and often heartbreaking journey of a poor man who achieved the American Dream, and never forgot where he came from.
