New York Stock Brokers: Woerishoffer & Company


Charles Woerishoffer was one of the most significant brokers and power players on Wall Street during the gilded age.  While he died in 1886, his legacy was still being recounted in the 1897 publication King's Views of the New York Stock Exchange.  His firm continued to operate for some years after his death.  Frederick Renner was an understudy of Mr. Woerishoffer and ran the firm during the 1898 tax period.
