Biography of Edward M. Muller
Richmond County, NY Biographies





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.
