Biography of Edward L. Stevens
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Edward L. Stevens, born in Malone May 20, 1867, engaged in teaching after completing his academic and collegiate course of studies, his first important work in this line having been as principal of the Chateaugay high school, and then in a similar capacity at Catskill. From, the latter place he went to a professorship in the normal school at Jamaica, and from there was appointed one of the superintendents of schools for the city of New York, with assignment for service in the borough of Queens, where he was credited with having brought "order out of chaos" in his territory. Upon a later reorganization of the educational system of the city, Mr. Stevens was transferred to the borough of Manhattan, and for several years was second in rank in charge of the superintendence of the city's schools. He was an indefatigable worker of fine executive powers, and was fully abreast of the best educational ideas and methods. At the time of his death he was engaged in the preparation of a history of the State of New York which was to be particularly adapted to school uses. Mr. Stevens died April 3, 1914.
