    I could not but help see the class president's name Outerbridge and wonder if he was related to the Outerbridge Crossing bridge connecting Staten Island to New Jersey. Named after Eugenius Harvey Outerbridge btw

    Eugenius Harvey Outerbridge - Wikipedia

    The Outerbridges came from Bermuda and settled in Philadelphia mid-nineteenth century, half stayed and the other half settled further into and did business in NYC.

    George W Outerbridge 1881-1967 is indeed a nephew of Eugenius Harvey Outerbridge of SI bridge fame. George apparently lived with his uncle Albert's family in 1900 Census on Germantown Ave.. On further research his father is Alexander E Outerbridge who petitioned Orphan's court around 1887 for $900 a year maintenance for George from an inheritance for his mother who apparently died in childbirth or shortly thereafter and whose estate inherited a portion of her father's estate of George Whitney of George Whitney Outerbridge's grandfather's death in 1885. A trust fund baby.

    George Whitney was son of Asa Whitney, one time partner of Mathias Baldwin and his locomotive company from about 1840 to 1847 before starting their own Railroad wheel business. Whitney lived on Logan Square, N 18th street about where the cross town Vine Street Expressway is today.

    George W. Outerbridge graduated from Harvard in 1905 and Medical School at the U of Penn in 1907 and served in France in WWI - an expert in STDs.

    George apparently never married that I could tell. Could not find an obit in a newspaper. Was curious as to where he was buried. etc.
