a nineteenth century leader in the American jewelry trade and founded New York City's Tiffany & Co. in 1837. Known for his jewelry expertise, Tiffany created the country's first retail catalog and introduced the English standard of sterling silver in 1851. One of the great achievements in his life was when he teamed up with Thomas Edison. Together they created footlights and other ways of electrically lighting theaters. As a result of this, Broadway and other shows became more popular during that time.
