Diamond Jim Brady (1856-1927)

Born August 12,1856 in New York City, James Buchanan Brady was a financier and philanthropist noted for his lavish lifestyle, fondness for ostentatious jewelry and enormous appetite.

As an extremely successful salesman for the New York Central Railroad., he drew large commissions and was soon a multimillionaire. As his wealth increased, so did his reckless generosity, penchant for the good life, and his display of clothes and jewelry. He handed out cash liberally and forgave debts freely. A lavish entertainer, frequently seen at the theater and luxuries clubs, he drew great attention with his diamond rings and jewelry and handed out $100 bills as tips. He rarely was seen in public without one of the his great gems prominently displayed, thus acquiring the name "Diamond Jim"

In 1912 he donated a fortune to John's Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Isaac's continues his tradition of generosity in introducing "Diamond Jim Brady Night"
