Roberts, Prof. J. W., is president of the Elmira Shorthand College. Among the city's prominent educational institutions there is no brighter light than this. This college was founded by its president in November, 1888, and has become one of the largest and most successful institutions of its kind in the State. Professor Roberts filled many positions of honor previous to establishing this college, covering an experience of more than twenty years. Among them he was principal of the shorthand department of the Elmira Business College, the Allen Business College, and other institutions. He is an expert stenographer and is frequently engaged in reporting speeches, lectures, etc., for the local press. He is also a member of the Metropolitan Stenographers Association of New York city. The school occupies three large and well ventilated rooms at 156 Lake street, in the Second National Bank building, in which are conducted three de partments, shorthand, typewriting, and reporting. The college is one of the few in the country under the management of an experienced and practical stenographer. On this account many students from other colleges attend for advanced instruction, and its graduates are filling important positions in many cities in the United States. Students come from a radius of several hundred miles to take advantage of its superior facilities.
