INTRODUCTION.




HE BIOGRAPHICAL DIRECTORY has been compiled for the
purpose of giving a brief biographical sketch of the represent-
ative business and professional men of the State of Xew York.
The form used is intended to give, wherever possible, the
name, business and residence address, place and date of birth, where edu-
cated, whether married or single, names of the corporations, firms and
institutions with which such men are connected, positions of importance
which they hold, as well as those that they have held, and also the names
of the clubs, societies and associations of which they are members ; and,
as such, it is hoped that the work will be found useful in editorial rooms,
in business offices, in club libraries, and as a book of reference, generally,
in both private and public libraries.

This information has, in very large part, been furnished by the indi-
viduals themselves, in addition to which the standard books of reference
bearing on these matters have been carefully consulted ; and, to insure
the accuracy and completeness of each sketch, a proof containing all the
information available from both these sources has been sent to all persons
mentioned in this publication.

"We have made this work as complete as possible on the lines above
indicated, and if there are any persons of importance omitted from the
volume, it is because they have failed to send us the desired information ;
and, rather than prepare something imperfect and, perhaps, misleading,
it has been thought advisable to omit their names entirely.

The twelve thousand (12,000) sketches in this book are those of men
prominent to-day in commercial, professional or other activities, who are
worthily sustaining the reputation of New York as the Empire State, and
the names included are entirely of characters living on the first day of
Janriary, 1900.

The difficulties and magnitude of the work involved in the compila-
tion of a book of this character will be at once obvious when it is consid-
ered how much exhaustive, careful and patient investigation, comparison,
verification and cross-references have been necessary in the preparation
of the present volume. Owing to the generous co-operation of the sub-
jects of these notices in furnishing us with so much of the information
desired, we are able to rely entirely on the merits of the volume for the
sticcess to which we believe we can, with all modesty, look forward.

A book of this kind will be published for every State in the Union
just as rapidly as it is possible for us to obtain the necessary information ;
and it is our purpose to revise it in each State every three years.

In 9onclusion, we desire to also record our appreciation of the assist-
ance rendered to us in the preparation of this work by such clubs and
other organizations as have furnished us with membership lists, and also
to acknowledge our indebtedness to the various works of reference neces-
sary to the compilation of a volume like the present.
