Henry Clay Frick (December 19, 1849 – December
2, 1919) was an American industrialist, financier, union-buster,
and art patron. He founded the H. C. Frick & Company
coke manufacturing company, was chairman of the Carnegie Steel
Company, and played a major role in the formation of the giant
U.S. Steel steel manufacturing concern.
He also financed the construction of the Pennsylvania
Railroad and the Reading Company and owned extensive real estate
holdings in Pittsburgh and throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
He later built the historic neo-classical Frick Mansion
(now a landmark building in Manhattan) and at his death donated
his extensive collection of old master paintings and fine furniture
to create the celebrated Frick Collection and Art Museum.
