.... President of the most successful steel company.
.... The president of the largest utility company.
.... The most successful wheat speculator.
.... The president of the New York Stock Exchange.
.... A member of the President's cabinet.
.... The president of the Bank of International Settlements.
.... The head of the world's greatest monopoly.

-- These men were touted as the most successful in the world.
-- But 25 years later: (1948)

.... Arthur Cutten --most successful wheat speculator -- died overseas in poverty.
.... Richard Whiney -- president of the N.Y. Stock Exchange -- was later imprisoned in Sing- Sing.
.... Albert Fall -- member of the president's cabinet -- was sent to prison and later pardoned so he could die at home.
.... Leon Fraser -- president of the Bank of International Settlement -- committed suicide.
