After the failure of Jay Cooke's firm, Morgan's firm became dominant in government financing and in financing railroads. Among his most daring undertakings was the formation of the U.S. Steel Corporation in 1901. Morgan's personal influence was a decisive factor in overcoming the money panic of 1907. Group of 4 pieces.
