Henry Clews was one of the original Wall Street icons. Clews was a broker and investment banker who lived in New York and got into the business by marketing federal bonds during the Civil War.

While he went on to become one of the richest men of his time, Clews had a unique ability to offer investing advice to government officials and other investors in a folksy style not too dissimilar from that of Warren Buffett. You can get a great perspective on the man and the times by reading Clews’ memoirFifty Years In Wall Street” which was published following the Wall Street Panic of 1907.
