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.
