Mitchell was early Milwaukee’s most prominent financier and railroad executive. His banking interests later became known as the Marine Corporation. After taking over the bankrupt Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad, he expanded the line to more than 5,000 miles in seven states. At one point, Mitchell controlled almost 100% of the 2,300 miles of track in Wisconsin.
