Photographed by P.S. Rogers in New York City. Great condition. Charles Wyman Morse (October 21, 1856 - January 12, 1933) was an American businessman and speculator, guilty of major frauds.Through Tammany Hall corruption, he established a near-monopoly of the ice business in New York, before buying several shipping companies and moving into high finance. His attempt to manipulate the price of copper-shares set off a wave of selling that developed into the Panic of 1907. Jailed for violating federal banking laws, he faked serious illness and was released. Later he was indicted for war profiteering and fraud.
