In 1850, American Express was started as an express mail business in
Buffalo, New York. It was founded as a joint stock corporation by the
merger of the express companies owned by Henry Wells (Wells & Company),
William G. Fargo (Livingston, Fargo & Company), and John Warren Butterfield
(Wells, Butterfield & Company, the successor earlier in 1850 of Butterfield,
Wasson & Company). Wells and Fargo also started Wells Fargo & Co. in
1852 when Butterfield and other directors objected to the proposal that
American Express extend its operations to California.
