Henry Osborne Havemeyer (October 18, 1847 – December 4, 1907) was an American entrepreneur who founded and became president of the American Sugar Refining Company in 1891.

Background

Henry Osborne Havemeyer was an American industrialist and sugar refiner. He was the third generation of his family in the sugar business and oversaw the expansion of the family firm into the American Sugar Refining Company which dominated the sugar industry in the late 19th century. Together with his wife, Louisine Havemeyer, he was an avid and prolific collector of art, one of the earliest collectors to bring Impressionist Art to America, guided by artist Mary Cassatt. After Louisine Havemeyer's death in 1929, a large part of their collection was bequeathed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
