New York, 1882. 200 Shares I/C Stock Certificate Issued to J.A. Bostwick, S/N 71. Black text with green border, U.S. Capitol Building at top center. Signatures have been cancelled. Fine-VF condition with some glue staining at top and left, FBN. Signatures are: J. D. Rockefeller as President; J. A. Bostwick, who the certificate is also issued to, as Treasurer; and H. M. Flagler as Secretary. Very rare set of signatures. John Davison Rockefeller (July 8, 1839 - May 23, 1937) was the guiding force behind the creation and development of the Standard Oil Company, which grew to dominate the oil industry and became one of the first big trusts in the United States. The Standard Oil Company was organized in 1870, with Henry Morrison Flagler (January 2, 1830 - May 20, 1913) and Jabez Abel Bostwick (September 23, 1830 - August 16, 1892) serving as founding members, alongside J.D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller is widely considered the wealthiest American of all time and the richest person in modern history. Standard Oil Co. was an American oil-producing, transporting, refining, and marketing company. Standard Oil's history as one of the world's first and largest multinational corporations ended in 1911, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in a landmark case, that Standard Oil was an illegal monopoly. Rare and valuable group of signatures from influential and famous American businessmen.
