The Pierpont Morgan Library McKim Building - 33 East 36th Street, New York

1903, Charles Follen McKim


"In 1907, Pierpont Morgan helped end the Panic of 1907 by rallying fellow bankers to supply liquidity to shore up the endangered banking system. The crisis was resolved in the library after he locked the doors and refused to let the bankers leave until they agreed to a rescue plan."
