Title
J.W. McConnell: Financier, Philanthropist, Patriot
Abstract
John Wilson McConnell (1877-1963) was one of the wealthiest and most powerful businessmen of his generation – both in Canada and internationally. Early in his career he established the Montreal office of the Standard Chemical Company and began selling bonds and shares in both North America and Europe, establishing relationships that would lead to his enormous financial success. He was involved in numerous businesses, from tramways to ladies' fashion to mining, and served on the boards of several corporations. For nearly fifty years McConnell was president of St. Lawrence Sugar, and late in life he became the owner and publisher of The Montreal Star.
