Jay Cooke (1821-1905)
Jay Cooke was an American financier who gained acclaim for selling $500 million worth of Civil War bonds for the U.S. Treasury in 1862 and then repeating the feat in 1865. Cooke's attempt to finance the Northern Pacific railway failed, triggering the panic of 1873. By 1880 he had recovered his wealth by investing in Utah mining interests.
