Otto H. Kahn

a.k.a. Otto Hermann Kahn

Author Code: GOHK

Born: Feb. 21, 1867 - Mannheim, Germany

Died: Mar. 29, 1934 - New York City, New York, USA

The son of a Jewish Banker, Kahn began his own banking career as a clerk with Deutsche Bank. In 1888, he was sent by them to London and spent five years there, becoming a British citizen in the process. In 1893, he took a position in New York City, and two years later married Adelaide Wolff, the daughter of Abraham Wolff, a senior partner in the Wall Street firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. Working at Kuhn, Loeb, Kahn became increasingly wealthy and used much of his wealth in support of the arts. In 1903, he was elected to the board of the Metropolitan Opera Company and spent over twenty years in that capacity. In 1917, Kahn relinquished his British citizenship and became a naturalized American. During the 1933 Pecora hearings on the Wall Street Crash of 1929, Kahn showed his eloquence and affability in presenting the viewpoint of the bankers. He died of a heart attack the following year. His writings and speeches were collected in Of Many Things (1926). Kahn's massive estate on Long Island, Oheka Castle, had a cameo scene in the classic film, Citizen Kane. His other works include Art and the People (1916), The War and Business (1917), When the Tide Turned (1918), The Myth of American Imperialism (1924) and The Value of Art to the People (1924).
