Wall Street is mourning the passing of former Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE: GS) Chairman and D-Day veteran John C. Whitehead, who passed away at his home on Saturday at the age of 92. Whitehead was central to Goldman's international expansion and helped design the company's culture that exists to this day. He was also an architect of the 1998 bailout of the collapsed firm Long Term Capital Management. The event foreshadowed the global bank bailouts that hit the markets a decade later and sparked conversations about missed warning signs in the U.S. economy.
