The name Paul Moritz Warburg is synonymous with the founding of the Federal Reserve System. Over the years preceding the formation of the Federal Reserve, Warburg wrote many essays and gave many public addresses on banking reform. His reform ideas were modeled on the central banking systems of many European counties he dealt with through the family business M.M. Warburg.

Paper presented by Sacred Heart University history professor Richard A. Naclerio at the Fall Conference of the New England Historical Society, October 12, 2013.
