IN July, 1902, I secured a position with the Metropolitan Water
Board, as rodman for an engineering party, working on the con-
struction of the Wachusett reservoir which is now part of Boston's
water supply. I left the Water Board in March, 1905, and went
to Ponce, P. R., as railway superintendent of the Ponce Railway
and Lighting Co.; wonderful climate, beautiful scenery, and plenty
of hard work. I left them in November, 1905, and did some work
the following winter for the University, grading and draining the
cricket field on Soldiers Field. In March, 1906, I came to Fort
Smith, Ark.; as engineer for the Kelley Trust Co., a local concern.
My work consisted of land development, building roads, bridges,
and dwellings, and in draining a hundred thousand acre tract of
swamp timberland on the Mississippi River.

I stayed with the Kelley Trust Co., until 1912, when I gave
up engineering and formed a partnership with a local man, R. R.
Cravens, in a real estate and insurance business. A year later I
bought out my partner and ran the business alone for five years,
when I consolidated my business with that of my present partner,
W. P. Dobbins.

My only hobby is stamp collecting, and my favorite outdoor sport
is golf.

ALEXANDER WALL

Born at Milwaukee, Wis., May 7, 1879. Parents: Edward Clarence, Anna

Louisa (Hearding) Wall. School: St. Mark's School, Southborough,

Mass.
Degree: A.B. 1902.
Married: Vivian Frederica Crasemann, Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 10, 1912.

Child: Alexander Craseman, Jan. 19, 1914.
Occupation : Secretary-Treasurer.
Address: (home) Lansdowne, Pa.; (business) c/o The Robert Morris As.

sociates, Lansdowne, Pa.

ENTERED the employ of the First National Bank of Milwaukee
in the Fall of 1902, and served that bank in varying capaci-
ties, from running drafts to manager of the credit department,
between that time and 1907. From 1907 to 1916, I served exclu-
sively as the manager of the credit department. From about Sep-
tember, 1916, until about October, 1919, I was the credit manager of
The National Bank of Commerce of Detroit. From about October,
1919, have acted as Secretary-Treasurer of The Robert Morris
Associates, a national association of bank credit men. This or-
ganization of bank men is organized to promote the study of credit
phenomena on as scientific a scale as possible in an unexact science.
It is composed of about two hundred and twenty of the largest
banks of the country in some fifty cities, and reaches from coast
to coast. My business is the study of credit methods, conditions,
practices, and ethics, as evidenced in bank work. My office is in
fact a kind of laboratory for credit chemistry, in all its phases.

Golf, about a gentleman's game of 85-95, a certain amount of
reading, and my friends, are my hobbies. I hope my boy will go
to St. Marks in about four or five years, and then to Harvard. I
usually travel about ten thousand miles a year around this old
country, in an effort to understand its economic faults and help
our members correct them.

Have at several times served as school director, and other minor
civic jobs, trying to make good American citizens. Have had two
mental relapses, and in them written two books that would not
interest many in the class as they are technical and on the subject
of credit. Have not been able to attend any of the class reunions
as I have by force of circumstances been in attendance at business
sessions that have always taken place during that time. Hope to
make one some day.



RECORDS OF THE CLASS 455

Address: 5 Riedesel Ave., Cambridge, Mass.

FROM 1902 to 1916 I was associated with the Morristown School,
Morristown, N. J., a school which sends more boys to Harvard
than any other school west of the Hudson River. In 1912 I spent a
year at Princeton, another in 1914, when I served for a time as
resident master of the Graduate College. In 1920 I moved to
Cambridge and am connected with the Browne & Nichols School.
In conclusion I might add that I believe I am the "Class Father-in-
law," and I trust to receive due recognition of this from my admir-
ing classmates.

Teaching and my fast motors, and education (which I know
nothing about) are my hobbies. My daughter, Rena Victoria
Green, married Jan. 20, 1920, James McFadden Hays, who
was a Lieutenant in U. S. Navy during the war and received
D. S. 0. from British Government. Have traveled in England,
Europe, and Panama.

Occupation: Banker.

Address: (home) Westwood, Mass.; (business) 30 State St., Boston, Mass.

SINCE the Class Report of 1917 many things of world impor-
tance have taken place, but in which, I much regret to state,
it has been my misfortune to have had very little part. During
the war, when it became evident to those in charge of the financial
program that this country would have to provide many billions
of dollars, it was thought best to issue short-term United States
Government treasury Certificates, which could later be exchanged for
longer time Liberty Bonds when same were issued. United States
Government Treasury Certificates Committees were therefore
formed in each of the twelve Federal Reserve Districts to promote
the sale and distribution of these certificates, and it was my good
fortune to be appointed Chairman of such a Committee in the
First or New England Federal Reserve District. The experience
and associations derived from this work were most beneficial and
happy.

While during the war the cost of living was certainly high
enough, about all of us were probably too busy to think much
about it, but accepted it as one of the necessary evils of that period.
Since the war, however, and during this readjustment of "getting
back to normalcy" (a much abused term), I have had no time to
think of, or attempt anything, except to use my best endeavors to



458 CLASS OF 1902— SIXTH REPORT

support a wife and a large, growing, and very hungry family of
six children (fifty-fifty variety of the species). Consequently, I
have had no time for pleasure travelling of any kind, and have
developed no '"hobbies" unless tennis, golf, etc., can be so called.

I still live the year round in Westwood, Mass., on a small farm
(it's fine for the children), and I am still a member of the banking
and note brokerage firm of Bond & Goodwin.

Member: Harvard Clubs of Boston and New York; Tennis &
Racquet Clubs of Boston and New York; Algonquin Club, Country

AFTER three years spent in electrical and railway construction,
I took up the study of law and was admitted to practice in the
Massachusetts courts in 1908, specializing in the customs and tar-
iff laws.

During the late war, my time was spent exclusively in the work
of the American Red Cross, but am again back in my chosen pro-
fession. I have served my time in the city government in Melrose
and have always taken an active interest in its affairs.

My happiest recollections are of the days spent in Cambridge
and my chief regret, the lack of a son to send there.

CHARLES PARKER WEBB

Born at Lewiston, Me., June 24, 1881. Parents: Charles Albert, Sarah Jane
(Heselton) Webb. School: Classical High School, Lynn, Mass.

Degree: (c. 1898-1900.)

Married: Mildred Hazel French, Henniker, N. H., Sept. 5, 1911. Child:
Robert French, July 29, 1912.

Occupation: Real estate broker.

Address: {home) 7 Jason Terrace, Arlington, Mass.; (business) 45 Milk St.,
Boston, Mass.

IN May, 1900, I was operated on at the Massachusetts General
Hospital for serious mastoid trouble. This operation left me
in such bad shape that the doctor sent me up to a New Hampshire
farm where I stayed for nearly two years. In the Fall of 1902,
I had an opportunity to become associated with Messrs. A. W. &
H. G. Perry, Boston real estate operators and continued in their
employ until 1910. In September, 1910, I went into the office of
George A. Carpenter and continued in his office until 1919. These
offices together owned and operated over thirty large buildings
in the down town business section of Boston and I acquired a thor-
ough education in the business. In May, 1919, I decided to paddle
my own canoe and opened an office at 73 Tremont St., Boston. In
September, 1919, I consolidated my business with W. H. Ballard
& Co., Inc. I joined the concern as secretary of the corporation
with the option of purchasing an interest in the business, which I
have since taken up. Our business has increased until we have
become recognized as one of the leading real estate offices in Bos-
ton. My particular portion of the work has been the negotiating
of leases and sales in the down town business section of Boston
and other New England cities. My experience of over twenty years
in this business has gained a valuable acquaintance with most of
the large retail stores all over the country. We have endeavored
to so equip our office with maps and real estate data that we can
give valuable and accurate information on the down town busi-
ness section of all New England cities.

I have become very much interested in the work of the National
Association of Real Estate Boards and in this connection have
attended, during the past three years, executive committee meetings
in Washington, Atlanta, Kansas City and Chicago and am now
planning to attend the National Convention this year which will be
held in San Francisco, June 1, 2, and 3.

My work is most interesting and the building up of our business
has been a great pleasure, although it has involved an enormous
amount of work. I am associated in business with young men



RECORDS OF THE CLASS 461

whose energy and knowledge of the business has earned us a na-
tional reputation. Needless to say that in this environment of
energy, enthusiasm and success I am fit at all times mentally and
physically.

While I was getting well in New Hampshire I fell in love with
the country and later bought a farm in Deering, N. H. For the
past few years my brother-in-law has lived on this farm with his
family and keeps everything ship-shape.

My business takes me to all the principal cities of the country
and I often have the pleasure of renewing the acquaintances of old
college friends. My one regret is that I did not graduate with the
class.

Member: Boston Real Estate Exchange, National Association of
Real Estate Boards.



LOUIS BRANDEIS WEHLE

Born at Louisville, Ky., Sept. 13, 1880. Parents: Otto A., Amy (Brandeis)
Wehle. School: Manual Training High School, Louisville, Ky.

Degrees: A.B. 1902; A.M. 1903; LL.B. 1904.

Married: Mary Gray Patterson Liddell, Louisville, Ky., May 17, 1911. Chil-
dren: Mark Liddell, May 25, 1917; Louis Brandeis, Jr., Dec. 28, 1918.

Occupation: Lawyer.

Address: (home) Tuckahoe Rd., Tuckahoe, N. Y.; (business) 111 Broadway,
New York, N. Y., and 1512 H St., N. W., Washington, D. C.

Y senior year was taken on leave in the Harvard Law School
from which I graduated in 1904. Returning then in the Fall
of 1904 (after a Summer on the staff of the District Attorney of
New York, Wm. T. Jerome), I began the practice of law in Louis-
ville, Ky., business and corporation law, but with a certain amount
of quasi public employment, being appointed Special Prosecutor
in 1906 and again in 1908, first to prosecute election offenses,
and later the perpetrators of mob destruction in Southern Ken-
tucky. My profession continued the even tenor of its way then
and in the years from 1910 to 1917 with a business and corporation
law practice, I found myself increasingly engaged in Interstate
Commerce cases and in litigation in Federal Courts. On the quasi
public side again, I was employed to represent a large group of
citizens opposed to certain public franchises; and also repesented
the Louisville Board of Trade in obtaining for the city's industries
railroad rates necessary for their proper development. While en-
joying thoroughly the private practice of my profession, I have
generally managed to employ it also in a semi-public way.



462 CLASS OF 1902— SIXTH REPORT

I have ridden any number of hobbies. They are not like horses;
you can swap them in mid-stream if you want to, and you're none
the worse, neither are the hobbies, because they can always find
some one else to ride 'em! No matter how happily our lives are
laid, there tends to be a sameness, largely due to the character
and demands of one's work. Then at least let the hobby be ever-
changing. I have traveled widely in the United States.

I was special prosecutor on occasions in Kentucky during 1906
to 1908; drafted legislation in Kentucky for public education,
against child labor, etc.; drafted certain Congressional legislation in
connection with railroads; served on various civic committees in
Louisville, such as Director of Associated Charities, director of
Kentucky Child Labor Association, director, Kentucky Conference
of Charities and Correction, etc.; by appointment of President Wil-
son, commissioner of Federal Electric Railways Commission, 1919
to 1920.

After twenty more years of life, lived hard and eagerly, I know
much less about it than I expected. "Growing up" evidently does
not consist in learning all the answers to all the questions of youth,
but rather in substituting deeper and still more unanswerable ques-
tions for the old ones which still remain unanswered. We should
be allowed to live keenly a thousand years or so!
