Foreword 

IN a spirit of community helpfulness this volume has been conceived and prepared 
after more than a year of painstaking effort. In the undertaking — the first of the 
kind in Cleveland — the aim has been to produce a standard biographical reference 
source, but aside from such usefulness, the sketches are intended to serve as a mirror 
of current progress because the records of individual citizens go to make the substantial 
growth of the city. Printed proofs of all data having been submitted for approval and 
the vital statistics having been sanctioned by those whose names are included, this 
work is in reality an autobiographical compendium, covering a large portion of Cleve- 
land's representative population. 

Up to this time Cleveland has been one of the few vast centers in which such a 
book has not been available. Access to information about men and women in everyday 
business, civic or personal affairs has been difficult, therefore, to obtain. In the 
early days of Cleveland's existence, down through the nineteenth century, everyone 
was Well acquainted with one another. When curious folks came via the Ohio Canal 
to see or to trade, they had plenty of leisure to find out what they did not know about 
the city or the people wath whom they dealt. Since Alfred Kelley built the city's 
first railroad on to the time of development of super-arteries of transportation by rail, 
water and air, there still continued that degree of congeniality in which all met as 
neighbors. 

Since the beginning of the present century, in which Cleveland moved up as a city, 
the trend has been toward limitation of intimate personal acquaintance. The lackadais- 
ical era in which people called one another by their first names and in which handshakers 
were omnipresent, is followed by a new period. Now a city of a million persons and 
the natural hub of at least two million people in one of the most prosperous sections 
of the United States rather demands authentic records about persons and affairs. 

In selecting names, every possible effort has been exerted to procure information 
from all who were deemed eligible, but some names, which were desired, are missing 
for reasons of personal modesty or misunderstanding of the real object of this enter- 
prise. In every case written requests were sent by mail and in many instances per- 
sonal solicitation was made in order that the purpose might be fully understood. Some 
who have not been included may be surprised. Others who are included may wonder 
w hy certain names were selected along with theirs. But we wish to impress forcibly 
that in the selection of a representative list many conditions had to be considered; 
prominence in daily prints or prestige in form of authority or wealth had to be con- 
sidered in relation to the idea of the volume, and the real purpose of it. All names 
have been chosen impartially and for no consideration other than desirability. The 
book is limited to living subjects and to legitimate information about persons, but in 
case of death of anyone whose questionnaire had been returned and in the hands of 
the publishers, the same has been included as prepared and marked (Deceased). 

Anyone who wishes to know about a representative citizen of Cleveland, as to 
where he came from, how educated, regarding his home life, politics, military or pos- 
sibly religious affiliations, or something of the various steps in accomplishing a career, 
may turn to this alphabetical list for the desired answer. Or for those who wish to 



know more about certain friends or acquaintances, the volume is intended to be en- 
lightening. 

The press of Cleveland, daily, weekly and metropolitan, will find "Representative 
Clevelanders" especially helpful on many points of importance and interest. Errors easily 
occurring in hasty writing or hurried preparation may be obviated to a degree by 
use of the compiled data which is in a standardized type form and style. Restrictions 
to accomplish uniformity may be misunderstood in some instances but the practicability 
of the form adopted will be apparent in usage. Libraries in Cleveland as well as in 
many other cities early signified their desire to have the book on their shelves. 

As this volume makes its appearance Cleveland stands on the threshold of a new 
advance in industry and transportation. 

When it is considered that ten million passengers or nearly one-tenth of the total 
population of the country are carried every year by steam railways, interurbans and 
busses in and out of the city, and that sixteen million tons of freight are hauled in by 
rail carriers annually, part of which is consumed and the remainder of which is 
manufactured into millions of tons of cargoes for outgoing shipments, one can realize 
more fully the urgent need of enlarged fact and figure references. Publications gen- 
erally now concern themselves not so much about abstract affairs as about persons, 
who they are, what they are doing, where they came from and how they succeeded. 

Increasing importance of Cleveland as a financial center also emphasizes the in- 
creased necessity of accurate vital statistical records for use of banks and business 
houses. Since the Federal Reserve system was inaugurated in 19 14, resources of the 
member banks in the fourth district, of which Cleveland is the center, have more than 
tripled, now totaling close to four billion dollars. But more important than banking 
figures or transportation or manufacturing prestige is the growth of Cleveland's civic 
spirit before which the provincialism of olden days has been forced to bow, and to which 
this work is dedicated. 

To those who responded courteously to this enterprise and with an understanding 
such as moved them to act for mutual community advantage, we express our feeling of 
gratitude. 

No doubt, as time goes on there will be necessity of revision and in order to 
assure of this we will later invite suggestions for improvement or advice as to changes 
in biographical data, changes of address or of business associations, and especially 
notices of deaths.
