As far as I can see . . .

A Happy Birthday salute to John Pierpont Morgan (April 17, 1837 – March 31, 1913), financier, banker and art collector, considered by many the greatest financier in the history of United States business.

John Pierpont Morgan was a notable collector of books and art objects. He was president and a major force in the establishment of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to which he bequeathed much of his large art collection.

“Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.” - J. P. Morgan

“When you expect things to happen - strangely enough - they do happen.” - J. P. Morgan
