De Carnegie Wateler Vredesprijs. Marten van Harten.
The will of Dutch banker and peace philanthropist Johan Gerard Daniël Wateler, 16th of November 1916. De Nieuwe Haagsche Publishing House, 2016.
During the First World War, Dutch banker Johan Wateler wrote a testament in which he stated that his assets are destined for a Dutch peace prize, the current Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize. This prestigious prize is awarded every other year at the Peace Palace in The Hague.
This book presents the first life sketch of this almost anonymous Dutchman, who became one of the greatest peace philantropists. Wateler was a pioneer of the social credit banks, with Princess Sophie as a guardian. Watelers gift of the 16th of November 1916 remains an inspirational example of philanthropy today.
