HOW IT CAN HEP OUR READERS, ana 
HOW IT DIFFERS FROMOTHER SCHOOL BUREAUS 



THE average reader of Who's Wo in New York has neither time nor patience 
to wade through a mass of sclol catalogues in order to find the school that 
is best adapted to his needs. 
Ordinarily, when a paren applies to a school information bureau for a 
school, he is swamped with ajlications in print, in typewritten form, and in 
person, made by many schools that couhnot possibly interest him. 

This is because school bureaus arejenerally conducted by people who are not 
trained and experienced educators. Tlir policy is to give the names of inquirers 
to many schools, in the hope that someone will be found suitable, and that that school 
will credit the bureau with the securinjfor it of one enrollment. 

Right here our bureau draws a vei close line. 

NOT OVER THREE SCHOOLS re brought to the attention of one inquirer; 
when the inquiry.is : made, sufficiently (Snite, only one. 

Suggestions regarding, schools "firenade by our bureau only after a very definite 
correspondence, conducted .hy .out. . Ediational Director, Mr. A. von W. Leslie, lately 
Head Master of the BJaKe^ School," "in Nv York. Mr. Leslie has had eighteen years' 
experience as an edueatpr q'b.6!tft*b,oys ai girls. His work, particularly that done in con- 
nection with the Bla^e/SAmf/isr -School brought him into somewhat intimate rela- 
tionship with a great many *o'f rh'e"ieaGg schools in the East. 

The object of the correspondence ferred to above is to secure from the parent 
data which will eliminate from the fiel of his choice all schools that would not inter- 
est him, and to find the one that would > so most largely. 

We wish to know the parent's lirmtions as to rates, location of school, type of 
school, and what may be the individual ^eds of the pupil. 

The advertisements of a number oschools and teachers will be found scattered 
through the pages of this book. Most ohese schools have been personally visited by 
Mr. Leslie and he is acquainted with the who conduct them. It is hard to write the 
advertisement of a school so as to give y true idea of its standards, its ideals and its 
atmosphere. These are matters which trained educator can get hold of more readily 
than the average parent. 

We therefore suggest + '. iur reacs give careful scrutiny to our educational 
directory, and correspond v of ose institutions the advertisements of which 

interest them. If this see/'-.- to entail tooiuch loss of time or annoyance, put your 
problems squarely, fran'.iy and 'any upo us, so that we can help you out. Our 
service is absolutely fr< e of charge.

WHO'S WHO IN NEW YORK 



PREFACE 



THE Sixth Biennial Edition of Who's Who in New York City and State is here- 
with presented with eonlidence that it will meet with a welcome even more 
wide and general than that accorded to its predecessor in 1911. The lapse of 
one year in the issuance of this publication was caused by the unfortunate death 
of its late editor, Mr. Louis R. Hamersly. 

The processes of addition and elimination have both been invoked to give the pres- 
ent volume a more thoroughly representative character. As a work of reference to 
biographical statistics of a single State, it is unique in its comprehensive completeness. 
It not alone treats with men of importance who live in the State of New York, but 
also those from other States who, by commercial or social affiliation, are closely con- 
nected with the metropolis. 

While it is possible to criticise any compilation of this kind on the ground that 
certain individuals are included or excluded, we have taken great pains to make this 
volume less open to such criticism. Great care has been exerted to obtain accurate and 
dependable information, and in almost every instance it has been procured at first hand, 
and by submission of proofs for correction errors have been as largely as possible 
avoided. The exacting standard by which we have heretofore been governed in the 
selection and acceptance of names has been maintained, and we feel that this volume 
has an added value, not alone on account of its handsomer binding and more legible 
print, but for its thoroughness in covering the field. 

Who's Who in New Y'ork is recognized as one of the most requisite units in 
reference and home libraries. The condensed form of the salient items of the thou- 
sands of prominent citizens of the State, who are at the front of its activities, makes it an 
invaluable book of reference for the banker, the .newspaper, i he -club, tfa'e hotel and the 
merchant all over the world. Omissions there 'ave,- of, <.\(vurs'e. There % are some from 
whom or about whom no data could be procure'd 'after persistent effort, and perhaps 
some have been overlooked. In some instances we m&y have included those who would 
better have been omitted, but such cases amongst the; "many", thousands of subjects are 
unavoidable, and looked at in bulk, it is safe to assert that the bcok is open to little 
criticism as to its subjects. We would ask our subscribers' rn'ca'setfhd omission of names 
is noticeable that such names be sent to us for futuue. inclusion. It is the desire of 
the editorial staff to make this book complete, and suggestions will be very gladly re- 
ceived and acted upon. 

The purpose of the book is essentially for reference, compiled upon honest lines. 
No one has been included or excluded on the ground of willingness or unwillingness to 
purchase the book. It is used in libraries, by writers, by newspapers and by mer- 
chants and bankers in all the ways which such a publication can be utilized. Its 
data form the daily source of biographical reference in the press, both at home and 
abroad, and it is constantly quoted in the editorials of the leading newspapers, and for 
casual reference to complete biographies and obituaries its resources are constantly 
drawn upon. In the home circle it is a valuable auxiliary to conversation and to 
study. It puts the individual in intimate touch with the antecedents and career of 
the notables of the State, from the most intellectual to the successful man or woman 
in business or leisure, and it has a source of useful information not to found elsewhere. 

Its presence in foreign consular offices, foreign hotels, clubs, transatlantic ex- 
press steamships makes this volume more or less international in character where it 
is used as a means of identification and reference. 

In the advertising section we have listed a number of prominent houses 
which stand foremost in their lines, and in the school section we would call particular 
attention to our school bureau, the purpose of which is to assist the parent in a proper 
selection of a school without any charge or cost to him whatever. 

We have endeavored to compile the histories and activities of statesmen and jur- 
ists, financiers, capitalists, leaders in commerce and manufacture, professional men, 
philosophers, philanthropists, scientists, educators, journalists, litterateurs, architects, 
engineers and inventors in brief, the class of people about whom information is de- 
sired, and who are representative in every branch of worthy activity in the State.

The Choir School 

of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine 

is composed exclusively of the 
boys who sing in the Cathedral 
Choir. Such boys, between the 
ages of nine and twelve, as have 
voices sufficiently powerful and 
true to bear their part in the 
Cathedral services, and who are 
also satisfactory in character 
and scholarship, will be given 
their living and schooling at no 
expense except for clothes and 
school books.

The BARNARD 
SCHOOL for BOYS 



Formerly of Washington Heights, now overlooking Van Cortlandt Park Playground. Four min- 
utes' walk from West 242d Street Broadway Subway Station. Also accessible by N. Y. Central or 
Trolley from Bronx, Yonkers and Mt. Vernon. The building just completed, perfectly appointed, 
open to sun and air on all sides. 

With its semi-rural surroundings and its proximity to the playgrounds of that section, its plan is: 

To take the boy off the street after school hours, also Saturdays, by 
giving him a playground in the open, and by exercising a wise and sym- 
pathetic supervision over all his time, both of study and of play; 

Then to send him home in time for the evening meal, where home in- 
fluence can supplement easily and naturally the work of the school;- 

To furnish at midday a wholesome hot dinner, prepared by an effi- 
cient cook and supervised by a dietitian; 

To provide an afternoon study hour when lessons can be prepared for 
the next day. 

The arrangement is such that the boys will go to and from school in the opposite direction from 
the crowds, the younger boys going in the company of a teacher.
