Jose Agustin de Dios Edwards Ossandon was a Chilean politician and businessman, and one of the main forces behind the early railroad construction in South America.
Agustin Edwards was born in La Serena, the son of Jorge Edwards Brown and Isabel Ossandon Iribarren. At the age of 19, he started to manage the silver smelting operations owned by his father in the cities of Vallenar and Freirina. In 1837, by the age of 22, he became independent and moved to the city of Copiapo, with a small capital he had managed to save.
