The heavy old man with the huge ruby nose sat in the committee room. He was seventy-five years old, and he had been called to testify about what he had done in his life. He was believed to be the head of a Money Trust, which could create and avert panics on Wall Street. He was said to have saved the gold standard of the United States. He was known to be the most powerful financier in America and perhaps in the world. His name was J. Pierpont Morgan.



John Pierpont Morgan gave his name to an investment bank which still bears his name a hundred years after his death. In this biography, Andrew Sinclair chronicles his life and times.
