Thomas J. Watson (1874-1956) was Chairman and CEO of IBM, being instrumental in building it into an international powerhouse between his joining in 1914 and his death. In 1937, Watson was elected chairman of the International Chamber of Commerce, and the slogan "World Peace through World Trade" was adopted by both the ICC and IBM. In 1941, he had the third highest salary and compensation package in the U.S., $517,221, on which he paid 69% in tax. The main library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is named for him.
