EDWARD M. MULLER was born in the city of New York, Jan. 28th, 1864. His first school days were spent in old
Grammar school No. 29, from which he was graduated with honors, and then entered the College of the City of New
York, where he took a commercial course.
After leaving college, he at once received a responsible position in the service of the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western Railroad Company, and is now in business with his father as transportation agents.
Mr. Muller gained considerably prominence in school circles, during his boyhood days, on account of his ability
to master his studies, and his talents which were then carefully cultivated and guarded, have indeed developed
into rare business qualifications. He is a fine accountant, and ranks as an able mathematician. He has travelled
considerably, and it is said in financial circles that he has handled as much money in his business career as any
man of age in the great metropolis. Mr. Muller's knowledge of the railroads of this country is very large.
He was elected sheriff of Richmond county, as a Democrat, in 1891, and is the youngest sheriff that has ever been
elected in the county of Richmond, and in fact in the state of New York. He has instituted many reforms in the
sheriff's office, and has been repeatedly complimented by the judiciary and the grand jury on the efficient manner
in which he has conducted his office.
Personally, Mr. Muller is a man whose friendship is valued by all who bear his acquaintance; cool and collected,
but with a heart filled with warm impulses; with a mind clear and determined as to his line of duty; with a character
above reproach and an integrity that no one will question; with pure intentions, and with the laudable ambition
of doing right under all circumstances.
