PREFACE

CITY OTTTTi



Who's Who in New York is compiled upon the lines of a
I London publication, which furnishes biographic data of prominent
men the world over, and a Chicago publication which covers the same
ground for the whole United States. Obviously, the wider range of
I these books precludes the mention of many names that have a definite
and important interest when considered as factors in the life of this
State.

This local information, so to call it, has never, up to this time,
been gathered within the limits of a single volume, and those who
have had occasion to look for such information realize how difficult it
is to secure. It is to be found only in County histories of dubious
veracity; in newspaper clippings difficult of access ; in family histories
overloaded with unimportant trivialities ; or, in many instances, is
not to be found at all. But, worst of all, when the alleged facts are
gathered together they are found to be conflicting and the vital
element of authenticity lacking. Who's Who ix New York is
authentic. The information has been gathered at first hand. It may
be relied upon.

The readers of this volume will confer a great favor upon the
L. R. Hamersly Company by suggesting the names of people who
should be included herein, but who have, for various reasons, been
omitted. No one can be more sensible than the Publishers of the
sins of omission which may be properly laid at their door. One
thing, however, they do pride themselves upon : the most severe critic
of their work cannot say that any men or women have been included
I who do not deserve a place in this book. The error has been ihat of
I omission rather than commission.

sional contributor to the press. Author:

Quebec, and Mrs. E. F. Ellet's Women of
the American Revolution. Member and
former secretary of Quill Club. Address,
281 4th Ave., N. Y. City.
ABBE, Cleveland:

Meteorologist; born New York, Dec. 3.
1838; son of George Waldo Abbe and
Charlotte Colgate; was graduated from
the College of the City of N. Y., A. B..
1857, A. M., 1860; after graduation he
taught for a year in the Trinity Church
grammar school, but since then has con-
fined himself to work in astronomy and
meteorology; as director of the Cincin-
nati Astronomical Observatory, 1868-
1873, he established a system of daily
weather telegrams and a daily weather
map for the whole country, with fore-
cast of the weather for Cincinnati; this



was done by co-operation with the Cin-
cinnati Chamber of Commerce, the mem-
bers of which united with Prof. J. A.
Lapham of Milwaukee in urging upon the
L'. S. Congress the importance of a sim-
ilar work for the benefit of the whole
country; the national service was origi-
nally, in 1870, entrusted to Gen. Albert J.
Myer. as the chief signal officer of the
Army, but was transferred to the depart-
ment of agriculture in 1891, and is now
known as the U. S. Weather Bureau;
Abbe's interest in this meteorological
work was to a considerable extent the
outcome of circumstances peculiar to his
boyhood in N. Y. City, where the lectures
of James P. Espy and Elias Loomis, the
writings of William H. Redfield and Jos-
eph Henry and the publication of long-
range forecasts by Merriam, "The Sage
of Brooklyn Heights," and especially the
daily weather tables published by the
telegraph companies as items of news,
all conspired to arouse a great interest
in the subject and convince many citi-
zens that daily weather predictions
would soon be feasible; in connection
with his work in Cincinnati, Prof. Abbe
published in the New York papers, dur-
ing the winter of 1869-70, as also in the
Chicago papers, letters showing his
great hope that telegraphic weather work
would be a benefit to the country, and
would thereby gain the right to ask that
the study of meteorology as a science be
heartily supported by the universities;
after the successful career of the weather
bureau for over thirty years, he has still
to regret that in his native city, whose
commercial interests depend so much
upon the weather, there has not yet
been established a professorship of me-
teorology. Address, 2017 I St., N. W.,
Washington, D. C.

ABBE, Bobert, M. D.:

Surgeon; studied medicine at the Col-
