      They come. From Egypt he had moved on to Rome, where he was granted a private audience with King Victor Emmanuel; to Aix-les-Bains, where he took the cure; to Venice, where he took part in the inauguration of the new Campanile, to whose construction he had subscribed; to London and Paris, where he purchased two fifteenth-century tapestries. In addition to consolidating and controlling several railroads and industries, J. He got a taste of commercial life in New York and then spent a number of years in a drygoods merchant's firm in Hartford. He was not only — against all reason — denying that he controlled the reorganized railroads for which he had named the voting trustees who named the directors; he was actually denying that if he himself were voting trustee for all the railroad systems of the United States, this would concentrate control of them in him. But in his late thirties he moved to Boston to become a partner in the booming firm of James M.

      This book brings him vividly to life once again--a man who was born a loyal subject of the British Crown and became the leader of a radical revolution, a victorious military leader who relinquished the trappings of power to return to farming, a reluctant statesman who forged the institutions of a popular government that have endured for two centuries. The timing of Strouse's biography seems apt coming out in the years after the debate on "Victorian Values" because Morgan seems to be the kind of character who in theory certain politicians would have lauded - public spirited, a philanthropist, exceptionally wealthy; yet in practice would probably have hated - a philander, a man with international perspectives view spoiler [ educated in Germany and France and fluent in both languages hide spoiler ] seemingly more at home abroad than in his native country, and whose social, moral, and religious opinions were unpredictable. Morgan controlled U. West Springfield, Mass.

      The similarity was that both sets of efforts tended towards larger combinations either formally as a single company or more loosely in the forms of trusts, cartels, and overlapping board memberships and mutual ownership of stocks. In Septemberhe passed the entrance exam for The English High School of Boston, which specialized in mathematics for careers in commerce. He reorganized several major railroads and financed industrial consolidations that formed the United States SteelInternational Harvester, and General Electric corporations. How and when should government intervene in commercial markets? He answered clearly and stoutly; when he could not remember a fact or figure he said he would be glad to have it looked up and produced for the committee later. Pierce Jr.
