Inventor, elec. and mech. eng'r; b. Randegg, Baden,

(Weil) Rles; ed. public schools. X. Y. CUy, Maryland
Ins!.. Baltimore; Johns Hopkins Univ. (physical
sciences, etc.); m. Baltimore, Mil., April 21, 1895,
Helen, d. Lewis H. and Rebecca Hlrshberg; one d.:
Estelle, b. March 5, 1896. Removed with parents to
r. S. in KS65; began in 1876 as telegraph operator of
the Gold and Stock and the Western Union Telegraph
Cos.; removed to N. Y. City, 1880, and became identi-
fied with development of electric light industry in em-
ploy of the Edison Co., the U. S. Elec. Illuminating
Co., Fuller Mf'g Co., etc.; returned to Baltimore, 1884,
to devote attention to developing his inventions in
electric signalling, railroading, controlling apparatus
and illumination, organizing companies to push these
inventions; among these being his well-known
regulating socket, which was the first practic-
able device for "turning down" or controlling the
light or candle power of incandescent electric lamps
without the use of wasteful resistance, thereby placing
the incandescent lamp on a par with gas. Also in-
ventor and patentee of the modern alternating cur-
rent or "converter" electric railway system, 'by which
the limitations and restrictions of the 500-volt trolley
systems were for the first time successfully overcome.
The underlying principle of electric generation, trans-
mission, conversion and distribution disclosed in these
patents made possible the various rapid transit sub-
ways and tunnels now operating in N. Y. City, and
the electrification of suburban and long distance steam
railwavs now going on in the U. S. and other coun-
tries. "His basic patents on this invention were finally
adjudged in his favor after nearly 14 years litigation,
and were purchased by the Westinghouse Elec and
Mf'g Co. in 1903, on behalf of itself and the General
Electric Co., then operating under the so-called
Patent Pool arrangement. Has taken out over 200
patents on various pioneer inventions, many of which
are in extensive use, some of the more notable being
his method of electrically welding track rails, new
processes of rivetting by electricity, underground
electric railway conduit or sub-trolley system now
used in Xew York and other large cities; methods and
appliances for electric heating and cooking, telephone
and telephonograph systems and apparatus, etc.
Among others in general use are his basic patents on
electric elevator controllers, etc., covering the method
and apparatus adopted by the Otis Elevator Co. and
others on their electric elevators, and for general
motor starting and braking purposes. Invented and
perfected an entirely new and very effective telephone
system and apparatus, the patents on which were
taken over by the United States Automatic Telephone
Co. of N. Y. In 1912, following the sinking of the
"Titanic" by collision with an iceberg, he applied for
patents on a novel sound-detecting and registering
system designed to prevent such disasters in future,
and which also provides other important safeguards
against the dangers of navigation. Independent in

The following is a statement of its most important features :

1. The school is a high grade, standard college preparatory school, which
seeks only those boys whose home life has laid the foundation for good character,
manly conduct and good scholarship.

2. The school is situated in the most healthful region east of the Mississippi
River, in a climate giving the largest opportunity for out-door life.

3. The grounds contain seven hundred acres of land, providing fields for
games, ponds, streams, woods and hills. This land was selected not only with re-
gard to its usefulness, but also for the beauty of its surroundings.

4. The playing fields contain 3 baseball diamonds, football field, % mi l e run-
ning track, 9 tennis courts, golf course, gun traps (under the supervision of a
master), and a rowing course % of a mile in length.

5. The gymnasium has 5 squash courts, 4 courts for basketball, and swim-
ming pool, beside all the usual equipment.

6. The buildings were constructed especially for school purposes and are
thoroughly sanitary.

7. The courses of study, though broad, are consistent, and give the best
preparation to boys who desire to enter any college or technical school or to go
into business.

8. The teachers are graduates of the best Northern colleges, chosen for
their fitness to instruct and care for boys.

9. The boys are under constant care and charge of the principals and their
families.

10. As there is one master for every 10 boys, each boy gets an abundance
of individual care, both in his school life and in his home life.

11. The school refers to the authorities of over 21 of the leading collegiate
institutions which its graduates have entered within the past 14 years.

12. Graduates of the school now attend Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Williams,
Amherst, Mass. Inst, of Technology, Cornell, Case School of Applied Science,
University of Pennsylvania, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin,
