Editorial Reviews


"Elegantly written, Robb's book provides a much-needed investigation of both the perception and the reality of women investors from the Gilded Age to the Great Depression." --Economic History Reviews

"Women made Wall Street, and Ladies of the Ticker proves it.--Bitch

"George Robb 's Ladies of the Ticker fills a significant gap in the history of capitalism, establishing through extensive archival research that women were active as investors in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century America. Crucially, Robb shows that economic and cultural histories are inseparable. Drawing with authoritative knowledge on a range of journalistic and literary texts, he explores the disjunction between representations of women as financially inept and the reality of their often competent and shrewd participation in an increasingly democratized stock market. The book is clear, accessible and enjoyable to read. It is a major contribution to economic history and American history generally."--Nancy Henry, University of Tennessee

"A fascinating and well-argued read . . . Highly recommended."--Choice

"Well researched, engagingly written, and nicely illustrated, the book succeeds not only in shedding light on how women behaved in financial markets but also in excavating the broader investment culture of the Gilded Age, with its clairvoyants-turned-stockbrokers, its bucket shops, and its get-rich-quick schemes."--Enterprise & Society

"A strong writer with the ability to craft a compelling and data-rich historical account, Robb provides further evidence of women's active presence in markets during the Gilded Age." --Journal of Business History
