Biography of Elmore W. Snyder

Elmore W. Snyder. A resident of Kansas since 1878, and with possibly one exception the oldest living bank president in the state, Elmore W. Snyder, president of the Manufacturers National Bank of Leavenworth, had been actively identified with the commercial and financial history of Kansas for nearly forty years. He was born in the Village of Red Creek, Wayne County, New York, November 23, 1850. Jacob Snyder, his great-grandfather, settled in that section of York State in pioneer times and operated a grist mill for many years. His grandfather, Amos Snyder, was there reared, engaged in farming, practiced law and served as judge of Wayne County. James W. Snyder, father of Elmore W. Snyder, was born and reared in Wayne County, New York. He achieved prominence during the Civil war by recruiting Company A, Ninth New York Heavy Artillery, of which he was elected captain, and after serving two and one-half years was honorably discharged as colonel of his regiment. Colonel Snyder followed farming and grain buying principally during his active career, and when Oklahoma lands were thrown open for white settlement, joined the rush, although then well advanced in years, and succeeded in securing a claim where now stands the City of Guthrie. He took an active part in the early history of that city and for a period served as city treasurer. In his later life he...

Todd is the President of The Todd Protectograph Company, of Rochester, N. Y., and inventor of the famous machines which bear his name. Of the achievements and the development of the company which was organized by he and his brother, George W. Todd, he writes the following on their twentieth anniversary. Last week Charlie Tiefel and I took the car and drove to the old house on Gregory Street, where, twenty years ago, we built the first Protectograph. You may imagine that you have seen us right back where we started twenty years ago. Our hair is grayer and things have changed considerably during that time. I could not help but think over the many interesting things that have occurred in this business since that sunny June day, twenty years ago, when we sat under the trees and worked out the problems that came to us on this first machine. Walter Todd, a lad of thirteen, was at that time building a boat, and having the usual good time that comes to boys of his age, and my own family had not yet begun to arrive. Little did we think in those days that in this brief period of time such an organization would be built up to...
