Famous Philadelphians

You won't find Ben Franklin here, but you will find robber barons, social reformers, religious leaders, industrialists, railroad men, brewers, and artists, men and women of Philadelphia and its immediate suburbs who made an impact locally, nationally, and, some, internationally.
