William Henry Vanderbilt (1821-1885) was the son of the legendary Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. William commenced his career in a bank company in Wall Street. Health reasons, however, took him away back to Staten Island. Afterwards, he was working as farmer. These entrepreneurial skills convinced his father. That is why he handed over the management of the Staten Island Rail-Road Company to him. Later on, his father appointed him vice-president in the Harlem-Line. Soon enough, William was head of the most important Hudson-Line. After the death of the Commodore, William H. Vanderbilt took over the power of the family empire. Cornelius Vanderbilt II. (1843-1899) was the oldest son of William Henry Vanderbilt. He succeeded his father as Chairman of the New York Central and Michigan Central. Furthermore he was the president of the New York & Harlem from 1886 until 1899.
