Both the retail and commercial bank and the bank's corporate headquarters are located at 383 Madison Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, while the prior headquarters building directly across the street, 270 Park Avenue, is demolished and replaced with a new building..

JPMorgan Chase, in its current structure, is the result of the combination of several large U. S. banking companies since 1996, including Chase Manhattan Bank, J. P. Morgan & Co. Bank One, Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual.

Going back further, its predecessors include major banking firms among which are Chemical Bank, Manufacturers Hanover, First Chicago Bank, National Bank of Detroit, Texas Commerce Bank, Providian Financial and Great Western Bank. The company's oldest predecessor institution, the Bank of the Manhattan Company, was the third oldest banking corporation in the United States, the 31st oldest bank in the world, having been established on September 1, 1799, by Aaron Burr; the Chase Manhattan Bank was formed upon the 1955 purchase of Chase National Bank by the Bank of the Manhattan Company, the company's oldest predecessor institution. The Bank of the Manhattan Company was the creation of Aaron Burr, who transformed The Manhattan Company from a water carrier into a bank. According to page 115 of An Empire of Wealth by John Steele Gordon, the origin of this strand of JPMorgan Chase's history runs as follows: At the turn of the nineteenth century, obtaining a bank charter required an act of the state legislature.

This of course injected a powerful element of politics into the process and invited what today would be called corruption but was regarded as business as usual. Hamilton's political enemy—and eventual murderer—Aaron Burr was able to create a bank by sneaking a clause into a charter for a company, called the Manhattan Company, to provide clean water to New York City; the innocuous-looking clause allowed the company to invest surplus capital in any lawful enterprise. Within six months of the company's creation, long before it had laid a single section of water pipe, the company opened a bank, the Bank of the Manhattan Company. Still in existence, it is today the largest bank in the United States. Led by David Rockefeller during the 1970s and 1980s, Chase Manhattan emerged as one of the largest and most prestigious banking concerns, with leadership positions in syndicated lending and securities services, credit cards and retail financial services. Weakened by the real estate collapse in the early 1990s, it was acquired by Chemical Bank in 1996, retaining the Chase name.

Before its merger with J. P. Morgan & Co. the new Chase expanded the investment and asset management groups through two acquisitions. In 1999, it acquired San Francisco-based Quist for $1.35 billion. In April 2000, UK-based Robert Fleming & Co. was purchased by the new Chase Manhattan Bank for $7.7 billion. The New York Chemical Manufacturing Company was founded in 1823 as a maker of various chemicals. In 1824, the company amended its charter to perform banking activities and created the Chemical Bank of New York. After 1851, the bank was separated from its parent and grew organically and through a series of mergers, most notably with Corn Exchange Bank in 1954, Texas Commerce Bank in 1986, Manufacturer's Hanover Trust Company in 1991. In the 1980s and early 1990s, Chemical emerged as one of the leaders in the financing of leveraged buyout transactions. In 1984, Chemical launched Chemical Venture Partners to invest in private equity transactions alongside various financial sponsors. By the late 1980s, Chemical developed its reputation for financing buyouts, building a syndicated leveraged finance business and related advisory businesses under the auspices of pioneering investment banker, Jimmy Lee.

At many points throughout this history, Chemical Bank was the largest bank in the United States. In 1996, Chemical Bank acquired Chase Manhattan. Although Chemical was the nominal survivor, it took the better-known Chase nam

Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen

Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen is an American comic book series published by DC Comics from September–October 1954 until March 1974, spanning a total of 163 issues. Featuring the adventures of Superman supporting character Jimmy Olsen, it contains stories of a humorous nature; the 1952 television series Adventures of Superman co-starred actor Jack Larson, who appeared as Jimmy Olsen. Because of the popularity of Larson and his portrayal of the character, National Comics Publications decided to create a regular title featuring Jimmy as the leading character, which debuted with a September–October 1954 cover date. Curt Swan was the main artist on the series for its first decade. In 1958, a second title was introduced, Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane, which revolves around another supporting character in a similar fashion. Lucy Lane was introduced in issue #36 and became an on-again, off-again romantic interest of Jimmy Olsen. In issue #57, he marries Supergirl after she loses both her powers and memories of being Supergirl, only for her to recover her powers and memories after their marriage.

She was the anonymous "Miss X" whom Jimmy kissed in issue #44 to break the spell that turned him into a werewolf. When Jack Kirby began working at DC in 1970, he insisted on taking on this title since it was the lowest-selling in the publishing line and without assigned talent at the time, so he would not cost someone their job. During his run, Kirby introduced many memorable characters, notably the Fourth World's New Gods, Project Cadmus and Transilvane, he reintroduced the Newsboy Legion and the Guardian. The faces of the Superman and Jimmy Olsen figures drawn by Kirby were redrawn by Al Plastino or Murphy Anderson. Comedian Don Rickles guest starred in a two-part story by Kirby in issues #139 and #141. Kirby left the series with issue #148. Lucy Lane was believed to have died in Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #120 but was revived in a story in Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #160. Nick Cardy was the cover artist for Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen for issues #154–163. Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen; the new series continued the numbering from Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen.

Superman Family itself was canceled in 1982. A Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen special one-shot was published in December 2008, following on from the "Atlas" storyline, leading into Superman: New Krypton. Many of the issues include Jimmy undergoing a transformation of some form; these include: Speed Demon - In 1956, a month before the debut of Barry Allen as the new Flash, Jimmy drank a potion produced by a Professor Claude and gained super-speed. Radioactive - After being exposed to a radioactive substance, Jimmy began to irradiate everything in his presence. Super-Brain - Jimmy evolved into a "man of the future" with superhuman mental powers. Monstrous beard growth - The machinations of the sinister Beard Band cause Jimmy to grow an immense beard. Gorilla - When Jimmy switched minds with a gorilla, he went about his reporting duties as a gorilla in Jimmy's clothes. Elastic Lad - As Elastic Lad, Jimmy by serum or by alien virus could sometimes stretch himself, akin to Elongated Man or Plastic Man.

As Elastic Lad, Jimmy was inducted as an Honorary Member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Alien-form - Aliens transformed Jimmy into a telepathic Jovian for a week; this turned out to be a Jovian week..., much shorter than an Earth week, about 70 hours = less than three days. Fire-Breather - An accident involving an experiment gives Jimmy fire-breath. Human Octopus - After eating an extraterrestrial fruit, Jimmy grew four extra arms. According to Superman, this was a hallucination, but Jimmy suspected that Superman said this to teach him a lesson since Jimmy had foolishly ignored advice from the Man of Steel that would have saved him a lot of trouble. Genie - Jimmy found a genie's lamp and was tricked into replacing its villainous occupant. Wolf-Man - In the vein of the 1957 Michael Landon film I Was a Teenage Werewolf, Jimmy found himself transformed into a werewolf. Woman - Jimmy would go undercover dressed as a woman in #44, #67, #84, #159. Morbidly Obese - Jimmy tried to get fat in an attempt to stop a jewel smuggler and to impress a Circus Fat Lady.

Giant Turtle Man - One of Jimmy's most cited transformations was that of his turning into a giant turtle man. Human Porcupine - After rejecting the romantic advances of an imp from the Fifth Dimension. Bizarro Jimmy - Although Jimmy has a counterpart on Bizarro World, he was turned into a Bizarro himself. Hippie - Investigating a colony of hippies at "Guru Kama's Dream Pad", Jimmy grew a beard and participated in a mock "hate-in". On the cover of this story's issue, Jimmy is wielding a sign that says "Superman is a freak-out!" Viking - Jimmy put on Viking armor and mistakenly thought he had been transported 1,000 years backward in time. In 1959, the producers of the action/adventure series Adventures of Superman were hit by a snag as to how revive the now-canceled series after series star George Reeves had died that summer from a gunshot wound. Jack Larson, who played Jimmy in the series, was approached with the idea of continuing the franchise as a spin-off for two new seasons of 26 episodes each to begin airing in 1960.

Titled Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen, it would focus on a more serious angle of Olsen's rising career as a reporter and journalist with Larson reprising his role. In place of Reeves, stock footage of Superman flying and a look-alike
