Edwin Lefèvre

(1871 - 1943)

Born in modern-day Panama in 1871, Edwin Lefèvre entered the world of journalism by collecting commodity prices for a New York newspaper in the 1890s. His book Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a fictionalized account of the life of Jesse Livermore, a trader famous for reportedly making $100 million by short-selling before the crash of 1929. Alan Greenspan called Lefèvre’s book “a font of investing wisdom.”
