Charles Merrill 1885-1956


Investing in the stock market was only for the wealthy until Charles Merrill brought Wall Street to Main Street. Founding Merrill Lynch in 1939, he taught middle-class Americans that the stock market was a viable investment vehicle for their retirement, their child’s college fund or a rainy day. He realized women also could benefit from investing in education, and held seminars nationwide for couples, with childcare provided.
