Hide Profile

The bark Golden Gate and clipper ship Nightingale were both involved in the Western Union Telegraph Expedition to British Columbia, Alaska and Russia to survey areas where the Western Union Telegraph Company planned to construct a telegraph line linking America and Europe. The line was never completed. Charles S. Bulkley was Engineer-in-Chief and Charles M. Scammon was Chief of Marine. The bark Golden Gate was the flagship of the expedition from June 1865 to March 1866, after which the clipper ship Nightingale became the expedition's flagship.

From the description of Orderly book of the bark Golden Gate and clipper ship Nightingale, 1865-1866. (Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens). WorldCat record id: 122383283

The telegraph was developed by Samuel F. B. Morse, with the assistance of Alfred Vail, in the 1830s. Their first crude working model was constructed in 1835-1836.

The New York and Mississippi Valley Printing Telegraph Company was organized at Rochester, New York in 1851 by Hiram Sibley and Samuel L. Selden, who sought to acquire and unite all the telegraph companies then located west of Buffalo, New York into a single unified system. In 1856 the company's name was changed to Western Union Telegraph Company, and in 1861 its headquarters was moved from Rochester to New York City.

Western Union completed America's first transcontinental telegraph line in 1861. The company introduced stock tickers in 1866, and money transfer service in 1871. In 1884 Western Union was named one of the original stocks in the first Dow Jones Average.

Western Union was controlled by the American Telephone & Telegraph Company from 1908 to 1913. In 1945 Western Union merged with longtime rival Postal Telegraph Company.

In 1994 Western Union Financial Services, Inc., was acquired by First Financial Management Corporation. First Financial Management Corporation merged with First

Data Corporation in 1995, and Western Union Financial Services became a subsidiary of First Data Corporation.
