Jim “Sunny Jim” Dunn (1866-1922)

Dunn was born in Marshalltown and became wealthy through his partnership in a railroad construction firm. In 1916 he was recruited by American League president Ban Johnson to head up a syndicate to buy the Cleveland Indians baseball team for $500,000. During his tenure the team's ballpark League Park was renamed "Dunn Field" and in 1920 the Indians won their first World Series.

At his death in 1922 control of the team passed to his surviving spouse, making Edith Dunn one of the first women to own a major league baseball team.
