Biographical profile of Henry J. Kaiser a great industrialist and philanthropist who had a profound impact on America's ability to prevail in World War II. People tend to regard the great American titans of the past as robber barons men who made their fortunes off the backs of the oppressed flaunting laws and living like nabobs while others had to scratch for a living. Yet some of the titans arguably accomplished the unthinkable from transcontinental railroads and transoceanic cables to unearthing the earth's treasures. Some of the titans were creative and farsighted men with relatively unblemished careers who left a proud legacy of their accomplishments. Henry J. Kaiser is a prime example of such a man a consummate salesman and visionary who built some of the worlds largest dams thousands of ships millions of automobiles hotels aluminum plants even cities and provided his employees with health care that is known today as Kaiser Permanente one of the nations largest health providers.

Kaiser and his remarkable life. [3424-word Titans of Fortune article with timeline further reading and video links]
