Mercantile Cancels: Flint, Eddy & American Trading Company

On July 15, 1900, The New York Times reported that the American Trading Company and Flint, Eddy & Co., merged to become the largest exporting and importing company in the United States. The new business became the largest buyer of manufactured goods for export in the US, by merging American Trade's "practical" monopoly of American trade in many districts in China, Japan and Korea, and Flint, Eddy's combination of the South American and East Indian Trade.
