Dall's memoir contains historically interesting details of his conversations with Commander George Earle, who while serving in Istanbul in 1943 attempted to negotiate a separate peace with Germany's Wilhelm Canaris and Franz von Papen; and with Admiral Husband Kimmel, who believed he was deliberately set up by the White House at Pearl Harbor. Dall was the chairman of the board of the Amalgamated Broadcasting System. Dall became involved with the "racist Right's ill-fated efforts at forming a third party". In 1960 the Texas-based Constitution Party put-up retired Marine Corps Brigadier General Merritt B. Curtis for president, and campaign manager Curtis B. Dall for vice-president.
The two were commonly referred to as "Sistie" and "Buzzie" by the press. "Mrs. Dall was divorced from her first husband, Curtis B. Dall, July 30, at Minden, Nev." (Syracuse Herald, January 18, 1935, p. 11.) Six months after her divorce, on January 18, 1935, she married journalist John Boettiger.

Curtis Dall is most well known in recent times for his book My Exploited Father-in-law, in which he speaks of his father-in-law, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and his relationship with, as he saw them, the corrupt power of the banking elite of the time. In reference to the Great Depression of the 1930s he states: "Actually it was the calculated 'shearing' of the public by the World Money-Powers, triggered by the planned sudden shortage of the supply of call money in the New York money market."
Dall's short memoir adds little to the history of the New Deal and skips over his relationship with Anna. Eleanor Roosevelt's and Anna's correspondence reveals that they loathed Dall, who admitted to be on acerbic terms with Louis Howe and other FDR advisers. The title My Exploited Father-in-law refers to Dall's belief that sinister forces, represented in part by Howe, Bernard Baruch, Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter, and Henry Morgenthau, manipulated FDR in the service of the "Godless Dictatorship" of the "One-Money-One-World-Super State".
Curtis Bean Dall married Anna Eleanor Roosevelt in 1926. In 1932, Anna's father Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected the 32nd U.S. President.
