  • Notes 
    • a gruff man who organized the American Tobacco Company, the largest tobacco trust in the nation. Over ninety percent of the nation’s tobacco being smoked, packed or chewed was a product of W. Duke and Sons. Eventually forced to dissolve the trust in 1911, Duke invested heavily in real estate and also created Duke Power, a massive energy concern. In 1912, his fortune was an estimated $80 million dollars.
