Summary
William O. Jenkins (1878-1963) was a Tennessee farm boy who ventured to Mexico in search of fortune and became that country's wealthiest and most infamous industrialist. Dropping out of Vanderbilt, Jenkins eloped with a southern belle and settled in Mexico in 1901. Driven by a desire to prove himself - first to his wife's snobbish family, then to elites who disdained him as an American - Jenkins would spend the next six decades building an enormous fortune in textiles, property, sugar, banking, and film.--
