The Museum's quarterly membership magazine, Financial History, is the internationally-recognized source for the history of commerce and the development of the American capital markets. Each issue features articles about the people, companies and events that have contributed to the nation's financial system, with the intention of lending perspective to current business and financial issues.
As part of its mission to document the history and practice of American finance, the Museum actively collects documents and artifacts related to capital markets, money and banking. The collection includes stocks, bonds, currency, checks, prints, engravings, photographs, objects and books. The Museum has an extensive collection of stock and bond certificates from the Gilded Age, from companies that include US Steel, Standard Oil and the New York Central Railroad. A description of the Museum's collection, including finding aids for some of the Special Collections, can be found here.
The Museum regularly publishes on subjects pertaining to the history of finance. In addition to its quarterly magazine, it publishes books and exhibition catalogs including, most recently, Genealogy of American Finance (Columbia Business School Publishing, 2015), which traces the histories and family trees of the 50 largest US banks, and A Billion to One: The Story of Herzog, Heine, Geduld, Inc. (2017).
