My wife picked up a ridiculous book about George Washington's expense account the other day. GW famously refused any salary but asked Congress to cover his expenses, which began years of meticulously accounting for everything, making him not only the father of the country, but the father of a great American way of life.

The author it turns out, was TV columnist and humorist Marvin Kitman, now 88 and apparently still alive in 2018. According to Wikipedia, he's written two humourous but extensively researched books about GW, so I guess this (from 1970) was one.
