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.
