The original owner, Clarence W. Barron, received this piece as a gift from his wife. To this day, Barron is considered one of the most influential figures in the history of the Dow Jones & Company. Barron worked for a number of newspapers throughout his life, eventually founding the Boston News Bureau and the Philadelphia Bureau. He specialized in financial journalism, and when he bought the Dow Jones & Company in 1903, he became de facto manager of the Wall Street Journal as well. He gained a reputation for deeply scrutinizing corporate financial records, and his investigatory work for the Boston Post helped to expose Charles Ponzi, leading to Ponzi's eventual arrest. His stellar career has justly earned him the legacy as the founder of modern financial journalism.
