A series of illustrations about Jeremiah Hamilton, the “Prince of Darkness”, Wall Street’s 1st Black Millionaire.
“There is no known image of Hamilton. Not an oil painting, a sketch, not even a photograph. He almost certainly did have photographs taken, and quite likely commissioned a painting, but if any likenesses have survived they are probably catalogued under ‘miscellaneous’ or as ‘subject unknown.’ ”
