Lee, Higginson & Co. was a Boston-based investment bank during the 1840s to 1932, home of many members of the Boston Brahmin establishment. The bank collapsed in the Swedish match scandal in 1932 while under the leadership of Jerome Davis Greene. Also known for financing the growth of General Motors. The headquarters building of Lee, Higginson in lower Manhattan, built 1928, is now the private Léman Manhattan Preparatory School.[1]

In 1935, former Lee, Higginson bankers, William M. Blair and Francis Bonner, founded investment Blair Bonner & Company, which today is William Blair & Company.
