Mellon took over his family’s small private bank and turned it into one of the largest sources of venture capital in American history. Mellon played a substantial role in supplying capital for expanding industries, especially steel and oil. He was the driving force behind Alcoa, Union Steel, McClintic-Marshall and other giants.
