Prefatory Note



In addition to the Alumni Associations of the separate
schools, there was organized in 1902 the General Alumni Soci-
ety of New York University. By provision of its By-Laws
(Article L, Section 1), "Any graduate of any department or
any matriculate of a class which has graduated and who has left
New York University in good standing may, upon payment of
a subscription to the Society, become a member. Any one not
a graduate or a matriculate, who is or has been a member of
the Council or of the teaching force of New York University,
or any one holding an honorary degree from New York Uni-
versity may become a member of this Society, but may not hold
office or vote at any meeting thereof."

In partial fulfilment of one of its objects, " the maintenance
of a list of the names and addresses of all matriculates of the
University," and in commemoration of the Semisesquicenten-
nial of the University in 1905, the General Alumni Society has
undertaken to publish a General Alumni Catalogue of New York
University.

It is the plan of the catalogue to provide a complete list of
all who have received degrees from the University and of all
officers of administration and instruction; to give under the
several names condensed biographies ; and to add, in case of the
deceased, the date and place of death, and, in case of the living.
the present address.

The names of the Alumni have been grouped in classes
under the various schools of the University.

The present volume is to be followed by another containing
the names of the Alumni of the Schools at Washington Square
(Law, Graduate. Pedagogy. Commerce), together with the



vi PREFATORY NOTE

Veterinary College; and that by a third volume, under the
editorial supervision of Dr. Egbert Le Fevre, secretary of the
General Alumni Society, containing the, names of the Alumni
of the Medical School.

In the preparation of the present volume, material has been
gathered by means of circular letters, enclosing blanks for data,
sent directly to all Alumni whom it was possible to reach. Such
letters have been followed up by cards urging that the requested
information be sent, and by a large amount of personal corre-
spondence. In addition to this direct source of information,
material has been gathered in ways less immediate. The excel-
lent Biographical Catalogue, published by the Alumni Associa-
tion of the College in 1894, has supplied a large amount of data.
The archives of the University, the catalogues of the various
College fraternities represented at New York University, the
annual, quarterly, and weekly publications of the students, the
catalogues of other academical institutions, general and annual,
the year-books of religious denominations, the standard encyclo-
pedias of biography, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in
New York, and many other sources, have been at hand for
constant reference.

The arrangement of material under each name has taken the
following order:

Occupation.

Degrees received from New York University and other
institutions.

Parentage and birth.

Preparation for New York University.

College record and honors.

Record since graduation.

Honors received and membership in societies.

Publications.

Marriage and children.

Relatives in New York University.

Address, if living, or date and place of death if deceased.

The editor would welcome additional information under the



PREFATORY NOTE vii

above heads which has not been included in the present volume,
but may be of service to those having in charge a subsequent
edition of the catalogue.

Thanks are due to many of the Alumni, who have contrib-
uted suggestions and information tending to make the work
more complete. Mr. James Abbott, of the Class of '83, Treasurer
of the General Alumni Society, has served the Society as Publi-
cation Committee. His familiarity with the processes which
intervene between completed manuscript and a bound volume
has greatly facilitated the progress of the Catalogue through the
press.

It is assumed that errors will appear in spite of the most pains-
taking care to avoid them. It is also admitted that most of the
omissions in such a compilation can be filled up if sufficient
time is allotted to the work. It is believed, however, that the
claim of further research for the sake of completeness at length
must yield to the claim that less perfect results be given out for
general use.
