Business Magnate. Born the son of Hamilton Fish into a prominent New York family, he was president of the Illinois Central Railroad from 1887 to 1906, its period of greatest expansion. In 1906, after a long legal battle, he was ousted by E. H. Harriman and promptly joined up with the competition, in this case, the Missouri Pacific Railroad, owned by the notorious Jay Gould. He also served on the board of directors of the National Park Bank at 214 Broadway in New York City, where he died suddenly while waiting to attend a meeting of the bank's board of directors. His wife, Marion Graves Anthon, was a noted Newport hostess. Their New York townhouse, designed by Stanford White, was recently purchased for $45 million by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and is to become the home of the Bloomberg Family Foundation. (bio by: Bob Collins)
