Charles Henry Dow, the first editor of the Wall Street Journal, created the stock market index with Edward D. Jones in 1897.

Dow, who had worked as a bookkeeper for a Leadville mining operation, was the first Vice-President of the International Trust Company quartered in the Equitable Building.

Originally, the Dow-Jones Industrial Average was based on 12 industrial stocks. Today, it is calculated on 30 selected industrial stocks.
