This book investigates the social and economic circles of one of America’s most renowned and influential financiers. It demonstrates how the Morgan family’s power and prestige stemmed from its unique position within a network of local and international relationships. Delving into the archives of many Morgan partners and legacies, Gentlemen Bankers draws on never-before-published letters and testimony to tell a story of how economic and political interests intersected with personal rivalries and friendships among the Wall Street aristocracy during the first half of the twentieth century.
