John Pierpont Morgan (April 17, 1837 March 31, 1913) was an American financier, banker, philanthropist and art collector who dominated corporate financial and industrial consolidation during his time. In 1892 Morgan arranged the merger of Edison General Electric and Thomson-Houston Electric Company to form General Electric. After financing the creation of the Federal Steel Company he merged in 1901 with the Carnegie Steel Company and several other steel and iron businesses, including Consolidated Steel and Wire Company owned by William Edanborn, to form the US Steel Corporation. Morgan died in Rome, Italy, in his sleep in 1913 at the age of 75, leaving his fortune and business to his son, John Pierpont “Jack” Morgan, Jr. And bequeathing his mansion and large book collections to The Morgan Library and Museum in New York. At the height of Morgan’s career during the early 1900s, he and his partners had financial investments in many large corporations and were accused by critics of controlling the nation’s high finance.

He was the leading financier of the Progressive Era, and his dedication to efficiency and modernization helped transform American business.
