New York Stock Brokers: Dominick & Dickerman

January 7, 1898 Column advertisement for Dominick & Dickerman

Dominick & Dickerman's Watson Dickerman was a President of the New York Stock Exchange in the early 1890s, and was a named partner of this firm at the beginning of 1898.  Over the course of the 1898 tax period, however, Mr. Dickerman would leave the partnership with the sprawling Dominick family, and the firm's name would change to Dominick & Dominick.  Dominick & Dominick still exists today.  Tomorrow this site will highlight a cancel from the Dominick only franchise.

When Dominick & Dickerman was founded in 1870, Ulysees S. Grant was in The White House.  The country was engaged in post Civil War construction.  The vast areas west of the Mississippi River were largely wilderness.   William Gayer Dominick & Watson Bradley Dickerman met on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and in 1870 formed the partnership of Dominick & Dickerman.
