Address: Lock Box 1615, Washington, D. C.

IMMEDIATELY after leaving college, I went to England, France
and Germany, on a business mission for Charles Sumner Bird.
After several months I finished my investigations, and returned,
remaining for several years in America. From that time on, I


have been taken up with literary work at odd periods, as my
health would permit. I have lived in many cities, and on this ac-
count my life has been unfortunately most unsettled. In 1915,
my nervous conditions forced me to give up regular occupation of
any kind for a long period of time.

I have been on the staff of The New York Sun, The Philadelphia
Bulletin, and The Minneapolis Journal. I have also done editorial
writing for the Philadelphia Public Ledger, The Cincinnati Times-
Star, and The Egyptian Morning News, Carlo, Egypt.

I collect rare stamps and old books during my spare time. My
three boys all attend school in New York. I have lived two years
in Cairo, Egypt; two years in British Columbia, Canada; two years
in Colorado; besides the places where I have worked as a journal-
ist. I have lived in places as remote from each other as Seattle
and the Island of Cyprus.

FROM 1902 to 1906 I taught science in the Concord High School,
Concord, Mass. From 1906 to 1910 I was head of the depart-
ment of science in the Beverly (Mass.) High School, Since 1910
I have been head of the department of physical science in the
Ethical Culture School, New York City.

From time to time during this period, I have done graduate work
both at Harvard and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
For two years (1906-1908) I was secretary of the New England
Association of Chemistry Teachers and for two years (1908—1910)
president of that organization. From 1913 to 1917 I was in suc-
cession, secretary and then president of both the Chemistry Teach-


ers' Club of New York City and of the Physics Club of New
York. During this period, also, I have served as reader in Chemistry
of the College Entrance Examination Board for five years and as
a member of the committee on Education of the American Chemi-
cal Society. In addition to these rather numerous professional club
activities, I have given my best effort during the entire remainder
of my professional time to the teaching of physics and chemistry
to young people of from seventeen to nineteen years; and any one
who does this in whole-hearted fashion will have little time for the
writing of books and magazine articles.

During the war period and the earlier years of reconstruction, I
have been kept very busy trying at keeping well a large
family guilty of much illness and in supporting said family
on a teacher's salary. This last I consider my greatest achieve-
ment deserving of nothing less than the cross of the Legion of

THE twenty-year mile post finds me still in the music business
— enjoying it more than ever, and able, I hope, to give more
enjoyment to the other fellow. Life has been very good to me.
For chief example — I have always loved the ladies. Look under
the heading "children" and then I ask you, is it for me to com-
plain? By the time the Brown Brothers are getting short-winded
the Lang Sisters should be coming in to their own. All sizes of
saxaphones respectfully solicited. I play the organ at the First
Parish Church on Meeting House Hill, conduct the Harvard Alumni
Chorus, have Symphony Concert classes, teach the pianoforte and
organ, and coach and accompany singers.

Immodesty compels me to say that I also play golf. September
7, last, I played it so well that a great sympathy and pity for
my fellow men welled up in my heart. I have wisely chosen
to forget all the other matches I ever played, so the pity
and sympathy are still welled up. Please don't speak about this
to me at the reunion — the whole affair went pretty deep, and I
break down rather easily.

Two years ago I visited Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. Ask me
about that some time when you have two or three days to spare.

As to likes and dislikes — I can never be indifferent to those
who make themselves happy in life by reforming other people.
They affect me something like a cat's vomit. For those who try
to make other people happy, who confine their reform work to
themselves — yes you have guessed it — these are the people I love
and admire.

I do not regard all men as my brothers, nor is my country the
world. Read the life of William Lloyd Garrison and the thoughts
of your humble classmate are revealed. Whatever he thought —
I don't.

War Service: Conducted a chorus composed of members of
the Women's Active Corps, We sang at many camps, hospitals,
prisons, etc. Volunteered my services as organist, pianist, or song
leader at many patriotic meetings. During the Third and Fourth
Liberty Loan drives served as chairman. Precinct 9, Ward 8, and
in the third issue got the largest number of subscriptions of any
precinct in the ward. Enlisted as a private in Co. C, 1st Motor
Corps, M. S. G.; was commissioned 2d Lieutenant, Supply Co.,

Occupation: Landscape architect.

(business) 15 East 40fA St., New York, N. Y.

THE Summer of 1902 I spent abroad, traveling from Naples to
Liverpool. In October I entered the office of D. W. Langton,
New York. Remained with him until September, 1904, when I
started for myself.

For a time I served as landscape architect for the Park Depart-
ment, City of New York, under Commissioner Stover and Mayor
Gaynor. Have done gardens, private estates, parks and real
estate subdivisions, etc., working with many different architects.
For several years I was associated with Arnold W. Brunner in town
planning work in Albany, N. Y.

Am collector of everything except money, now gradually
drifting toward collecting work of art rather than objets d'art
or objets de luxe. An artist by profession, born with a taint of
turpentine and oil in my blood, I find it impossible to resist
temptation, and do etching and painting whenever time can be
gained from other occupations. Children are, of course, my chief
consolation and resource, and keep me constantly eraployed,
whether at home or abroad. Have never traveled except for trip
abroad (see above). In these United States I have not been
west of Erie, Pa., south of Hot Springs, N. C, east of Provincetown,
or north of Utica, N. Y.

I view with alarm the extension of Federal power, the attempt
to make people virtuous by legislation, and the many attacks on
freedom of speech, of assembly, of the press, and of the individual.

War Service: Worked as town planner for United States Hous-
ing Corporation on projects in Erie and Buler, Pa., from April,
1918, to completion of contracts, about June, 1919. During that
time I made town plan for three projects in Erie, spending on them
in all about 800 hours. Two projects were completed in part.
Town plan for one project in Buler, on which sixty hours were
spent, was stopped with the armistice.

PuBUCATiONS: In 1910, in association with Henry V, Hubbard


and Robert Wheelwright, I founded "Landscape Architecture," a
quarterly. In eleven years ran this magazine on a shoe string, with
a total loss of under $150. and my time. Have written for "House
& Garden," "American Homes & Gardens," "Rural New Yorker,"
"The International Studio," etc., besides many articles and edi-
torials in "Landscape Architecture."

Born at Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 28, 1877. Parents: George William, Laura
(Blandy) Lee. School: Central High School, Kansas City, Mo.

Occupation: Real estate dealer.

Building, Kansas City, Mo.

LEFT college with the intention of becoming a journalist. While
an editor of The Crimson and The Monthly, I had determined
upon this course. In order to have something new and interesting
to write about, I decided that I ought to know more of life; and,
the opportunity unexpectedly presenting itself to me to go to
Louisiana as a lumber jack, I quickly embraced it. For several
months I piled boards, pushed trucks, graded lumber and loaded
freight cars; for almost a year I traveled among the little isolated
saw-mills in Louisiana and Texas, buying railroad timbers for
export to Mexico and, then, I was given the position of city
salesman in Kansas City, Missouri, for the lumber department
of the Central Coal and Coke Co.


My father's sudden death, in 1903, terminated my connection
with the lumber business. His interests being all in real estate,
I now turned my thought and energy to managing his estate, which
had been left to my mother and me. At this time there was in
the back of my mind the firm intention of getting the estate
quickly upon such a basis that I should have to give very little
time to it, and of definitely taking up journalism. But the manage-
ment of property, as Ovid has put it, "is a work of skill," and it
has engrossed me now for nearly twenty years.

For fourteen years I was a vestry-man in St. Paul's Episcopal
Church in Kansas City. From June, 1909, to June, 1911, I was
treasurer of the City Club of Kansas City, an organization designed
to promote the public welfare. In 1909 I succeeded in interesting
the late Thomas H. Swope, then Kansas City's most philanthropic
citizen, in a plan to establish in Kansas City a social settlement
modelled after Hull House in Chicago. For the purpose, I obtained
from him fifty thousand dollars. A second fifty thousand dollars
was raised in small subscriptions from the people of Kansas City.
Then, The Thomas H. Swope Settlement was established. In
1910 I was vice-president of the Settlement, and in 1911 and 1912
I was its president.

I was in England, Ireland, France, Germany and Austria the
year before I entered college. Since leaving college, I have been
in Cuba and Mexico, have spent three winters in California and
seven winters in Florida and have made many trips north and
east in this country.

While in Mexico, I accompanied Professor Fenkes, then with
the Smithsonian Institute, on a visit to San Juan, the sacred city
of the Toltecs; where we excavated many interesting specimens
of ancient pottery and examined and photographed the ruins of
some recently uncovered Toltec houses.

In 1910 I was appointed by Governor Herbert S. Hadley to
represent Missouri at the National and International Prison Con-
gresses, which met in Washington, D. C. In 1911 I was chairman
of the settlements and educational movements committee of the
First Kansas City Child Welfare Exhibit. The same year I was
appointed by Mayor Darwin A. Brown to represent Kansas City at
the Missouri State Conference of Charities and Corrections.

War Service: Served as special representative of U. S. Food
Administration, in charge of Perishable Division of U. S. Food
Administration for Kansas City and Jackson County, Mo. Was
chairman of Workers Supplies Department 2d Red Cross War
Fund campaign, and was chairman of Workers Supplies Depart-


ment, Salvation Army Overseas Fund campaign, Kansas City and
Jackson County, Mo. Held rank of assistant chief in American
Protective League, Kansas City, Mo. division, and was also ap-
pointed assistant secretary of Military Training Camps Associa-
tion for Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas.
