Biography of Prof. John Perrine Abbott


Abbott, Prof. John Perrine, principal of the Alden Union Graded School, is a native of the town of Hamburg, Erie county, where he was born in 1871. He is a son of Seth A. Abbott and Ruth A. Perrine, descendants of one of the oldest and foremost families in that part of the country. The place is now known as Armor but in early times it was called Abbott's Corners, in honor of the paternal grandfather of Professor Abbott. Seth Abbott was reared on the farm at the Corners and spent the early part of his life at farming. He is now, however, a prosperous lawyer in Buffalo. Professor Abbott was educated at the Hamburg High School and the Buffalo State Normal, and was graduated from the Normal well equipped in every way for the work of an educator. He graduated in 1895, and the same fall was called to the principalship of the Alden Union School, a position he still holds. He has already become one of the progressive educators of the State, and it was largely through his energy and influence that the State Regents' System was recently established in the Alden public school. Professor Abbott is a member of the New York State Principals' Association, as well as the National Association, and of the Third District Association of Erie county. Politically Professor Abbott is a Democrat, and was an active promoter of the party's interest and principles in the presidential campaign of 1892.
