Jeremiah J. Sullivan (1844-1922)

A true rags-to-riches story, Sullivan, an Irish immigrant who came to America in 1850, owned and resided in the Richard N. Allen House from 1898 until his death in 1922. He became one of Cleveland's most prominent bankers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, founding Central National Bank and other financial institutions, and heading many business and philanthropic organizations. He accomplished all this without even becoming a citizen of the United States. He finally did that in 1920, just two years before his death. This photo of Sullivan was taken in 1905.
