History of the Dow Jones Industrial Average charts the creation and evolution of one of the most important stock market indices in the world. Created by Wall Street Journal editor Charles Dow, the Dow contains the largest and most widely held public companies in the United States. In the foreground of the graphic, all 106 stocks that have been part of the Dow are graphed from the time they entered the index to the time they were dropped. In the background, the actual price of the Dow is shown allowing you to follow the great bull markets of the 1920s, 50s, 80s & 90s, the dreariness of the 1910s & 70s and the deep drops of the 1930s & 00s. In addition, the graphic provides information on the early days of the Dow when it contained companies such as American Can, U.S. Rubber, and Peoples Gas; the creator Charles Dow; and the break-down of the Dow by industry over time.
