Cyrus Field was an American businessman, entrepreneur, and visionary. He left school at age fifteen to work as a stockboy, and soon became partner in a paper manufacturing company; he was able to retire at forty, a wealthy man. He then spearheaded an effort to lay telegraph cable across the Atlantic Ocean. Although an initial success was short-lived, Field's determination and leadership eventually allowed him to realize his vision.
