The name "J.P. Morgan" may first bring to mind a large American bank, but it's the man behind the bank who's worth studying. Born in 1837, John Pierpont Morgan became one of the world's leading financial minds in the late 19th century. This biographical text explores Morgan's life and accomplishments, including his career in banking and his involvement in the steel industry, General Electric, and International Harvester.
