Biography of Henry B. Stimson


Stimson, Henry B., Buffalo, is the son of Nathaniel R. and Helen (Warren) Stimson, and was born in Brooklyn, N. Y., March 12, 1856. His father was editor and proprietor of the Weekly New York Day-Book for several years until his death in 1858. His mother died in 1868. Mr. Stimson was reared by an elder sister, Mrs. Frederick L. Cady, in Buffalo, but spent most of his youth in boarding school, first in that of John F. Ernst in Buffalo and later at the Flushing (L. I.) Institute, from which he was graduated in the class of 1872. He subsequently accepted a position with and afterward became manager of the Buffalo Steam Forge, of which Henry Childs was the proprietor, and in 1885 he formed a copartnership with Charles A. Gould, under the firm name of Gould & Stimson, and leased the property. Four years later this firm dissolved and Mr. Stimson resumed the management of the business until 1890, when it was discontinued. Since then he has been an extensive dealer in engines, boilers, pumps, lathes, belting and general machinery, with an establishment at 137 and 139 Washington street. His trade extends throughout the country. Mr. Stimson was married June 26, 1882, to Miss Elizabeth Hitchcock Childs, daughter of the late Henry Childs and Elizabeth Hitchcock, his wife, of Buffalo. They have five children: Henry Childs Stimson, Jeannie, Bessie, Nathaniel and Helen.
