Charles Schwab helped establish Bethelehem Steel which were used to build the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building. Schwab helped create the U.S. Steel Corporation, one of the largest companies in America. In 1929, Schwab's stock speculations wiped him out and he died bankrupt. In less than a year, World War II, which began a few weeks before his death, would make Schwab's holdings once again worth millions. A Charles Schwab autograph is something to talk to Chuck about. This reproduction would look great in an album or display.
