Wall Street People by Charles D. Ellis

Book Description

Revealing, captivating, and surprising stories of yesterday's legendary financial masterminds From its inception, Wall Street has been home to a variety of fascinating heroes and villains who have left their mark-for better or for worse-in pursuit of their financial endeavors. In Volume Two of Wall Street People, Charles Ellis and James Vertin turn back the clock to reveal the true stories of yesterday's barons of finance. This book profiles some of the most interesting, powerful, and talked-about financial luminaries of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Readers will go behind the public image of financial personalities such as Jesse L. Livermore, Joseph P. Kennedy, Andrew Carnegie, and John D. Rockefeller. Vivid portraits of these and other financial legends offer a rare glimpse into the professional and personal world of yesterday's barons of finance. Charles D. Ellis (Greenwich, CT) served for twenty-eight years as Managing Partner of Greenwich Associates. James R. Vertin (Menlo Park, CA) was the founding manager and CIO of Wells Fargo Investment Advisors. Vertin and Ellis have previously collaborated to produce three other books, including Wall Street People: True Stories of Today's Masters and Moguls (Wiley: 0-471-23809-0).
