    Good thing Anderson had the Cooper side of the family to keep him grounded in reality without all the drama of the Vanderbilts.

    The mansions the Vanderbuilts built in Providence are simply amazing. The Breakers mansion tour was really eye opening when I saw it in the late 70s.

    Is there any story that explains how the inheritance was squandered by the generations after? Otherwise that would make great story.

    Anyone else notice how there’s clearly a book on Stephen’s desk at the beginning of the clip, yet it is mysteriously missing at 0:07? Wonder why they needed to edit the clip like that.

    coop might be too biased to write objectively about them. from what i read the latter generations of vanderbilts were philantrophists and donated huge sum to museums, schools, etc.

    If he only donated his fortunes like his almost contemporary, Andrew Carnegie, then his name would have been on more public buildings.
