Economist, Publisher. At 21 he began a career as a newspaper reporter for several New England newspapers, including the Springfield Daily Republican and the Providence Journal. His interest in finance led him to form Dow Jones and Company with Edward D. Jones and Charles Bergstresser in 1882. They produced daily news bulletins for distribution on Wall Street. He founded the Wall Street Journal in 1889 and was its editor until his death. He was also the creator of the Dow Jones Industrial Averages in 1896. His writings on understanding market behavior, published in Samuel A. Nelson's 1903 book "The ABC of Stock Speculation", form the basis for what is known as The Dow Theory.
