HARRIMAN, EDWARD H.
EDWARD H. HARRIMAN (1848-1909). One of the great railway builders of all time, Harriman was known for his genius in developing and turning around failing railroads, including the Union Pacific. His stock market battle for control of the Northern Pacific against J. Pierpont Morgan and James J. Hill, which ended in a standstill, remains as one of Wall Street's great wars. A true financial wizard, Harriman was known as the "Napoleon of Wall Street" and upon his death, controlled more millions than any financial giant of the country.
