Albany, New York Biographies

Posted By Dennis Partridge On In New York | No Comments

Most of the following biographies were originally penned over the signature of “Atticus” in the Albany Times during the years of 1881-1891. These “pen portraits” were then revised, rewritten and enlarged for the present pubication “Noted Living Albanians and State Officials.”

Drawn from original sources, these seventy-nine noted Albanians and state officials memoirs were carefully written up over a three year period by D. A. Harsha. These men who, whether on the sunny or shady side of life, have reflected no little credit upon themselves for their earnest and studious endeavor from early youth to fit themselves for usefulness in the various professions and callings of life.

The following quotes the author, Mr. Harsha, on the aim of this manuscript:

“It has been the aim of the author to render in an impartial manner – without regard to differences in political sentiments, personal jealousies, rivalries or prejudices – ” honor to whom honor is due; ” and to portray in lively, yet true colors, the careers of living, active officials – politicians, judges, lawyers, physicians, bankers, literary and scientific men, etc. Particular attention has been given to the ancestry of these notables; to their early training in the school or in the office; to their industry and perseverance in trying to reach honorable and responsible places in society, with a description of the special work or line of business in which they have been or are now engaged, as tending to promote human progress and development.”
