Drexel, Winthrop & Co. was a partnership between bankers Anthony Joseph Drexel of Philadelphia and Robert Winthrop. Winthrop left and created his own firm, Robert Winthrop & Company in 1871. At the urging of Junius Spencer Morgan in London, Drexel became the mentor of Junius' troubled son, John Pierpont Morgan of New York, and entered into a new partnership with young Morgan, forming Drexel, Morgan & Co. in 1871. Two years after Drexel's death in 1893, Drexel, Morgan & Co. was renamed J.P. Morgan & Co., one of the original predecessors of what is today JPMorgan Chase.
