  • Notes 
    • Stuyvesant Fish, 1851-, is a graduate of Columbia College. In October, 1871, he became a clerk in the New York office of the Illinois Central Railroad, and from 1872 to 1873 was secretary to the president of that railroad. In 1876 he was made a director of same road and also treasurer and purchasing agent for the New Orleans, Jackson & Great Northern R. R. In 1877 he became secretary, and in 1882 vice-president of the Chicago, St. Louis & New Orleans R. R. In 1883 he was chosen 2d vice-president, in 1884, vice-president, and in 1887 president of the Illinois Central R. R. In this last mentioned position, which he held for 20 years, he displayed such executive and financial ability as to win for himself, in the estimation of many, the very first rank among railroad presidents of America.

      Business Magnate. Born the son of Hamilton Fish into a prominent New York family, he was president of the Illinois Central Railroad from 1887 to 1906, its period of greatest expansion. In 1906, after a long legal battle, he was ousted by E. H. Harriman and promptly joined up with the competition, in this case, the Missouri Pacific Railroad, owned by the notorious Jay Gould. He also served on the board of directors of the National Park Bank at 214 Broadway in New York City, where he died suddenly while waiting to attend a meeting of the bank's board of directors. His wife, Marion Graves Anthon, was a noted Newport hostess. Their New York townhouse, designed by Stanford White, was recently purchased for $45 million by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and is to become the home of the Bloomberg Family Foundation.
