DANIEL A. BULLARD, 2D.

DANIEL A. BULLARD, 2D, eldest son of Edward C. and Ida (Burnap) Ballard, was born in Schuylerville, October 16, 1869, and educated in the public schools of his native place. In 1886 he entered Phillips Exeter Academy from which he was graduated in 1889; the year following he entered the Worcester Polytechnic Institute at Worcester, Mass., graduating after a two years' course in the department of mechanical engineering. After graduating he returned to Schuylerville and entered the employ of D. A. Bullard & Sons (in 1891), and when the firm became incorporated under the title of The Schuylerville Paper Co., he became its first secretary, and on the death of his father, September, 1897, he was made secretary and treasurer and general manager, positions of trust and responsibility shared by but few as young men as himself. Although cambered with duties a much older head might find onerous to bear, Mr. Ballard finds time to take a lively interest in the affairs of his native village.

In politics he is a staunch Republican, and although never seeking office he was elected a school trustee in 1895 for three years, and president of the village of Schuylerville from March, 1897, to 1898. Any comments on Mr. Bullard's career in an article of this kind would almost seem superfluous, so well is he known and his abilities are recognized to be of such a high order all over the county. At Schuylerville, where he is best known and appreciated, when reference is made to his fine business qualifications, the reply is simply "a chip of the old block," referring suggestively to his father, whose place he has taken and ably fills in the conduct of the large manufacturing business he controlled up to his death in 1897.

In June, 1896, Mr. Bullard married May, daughter of Edwin S. Sweet of Brooklyn, N. Y. Of strong domestic tendencies, Mr. Bullard belongs to that by far too small a class known as home bodies. His preferences are the fireside as against the club, or places of general amusement. Although just past his twenty-eighth year, Mr. Ballard has given evidence that he possesses a superior order of business ability, keen insight and practical methods which are bound in the future to elevate him to a high standing among business men.
