The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt

T.J. Stiles has released a new book about Cornelius Vanderbilt, the boyfriend of Victoria Woodhull's sister, Tennessee. The author's blog says, "Along the way, I try to paint a portrait of Vanderbilt's fascinating private life, including the intrigue among his children and sons-in-law, his complicated relationships with his wives, and the truth about his friendship with Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin." The book mentions Victoria, Tennessee, and Col. Blood, and remarks on them, "Whether they invested any money on the stock market at all was an open question." Since the name of the broker with whom Woodhull & Claflin did trades was known to the Wall Street Journal, it's uncertain how the author could make that statement. The book also mentions Vanderbilt associate, Frank Work, who was a frequent visitor to the Woodhull household. You may not have heard of him, but it's certain you've heard of his great-great-granddaughter. Her name was Lady Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales.
