The New York Times, December 1, 1907:

BROWN IS WINNER OF LAKEWOOD CUP

Defeats Tillinghast in Final for First Trophy in Open Golf Tourney.

FINE MATCHES THE ORDER

Redfield, Knap, and Soper Carry Off Other Prizes, Though Each Narrowly Escapes Defeat.

H. W. Brown of the Philadelphia Country Club won the chief cup in the open Fall golf tournament at Lakewood yesterday, defeating A. W. Tillinghast of the Philadelphia Cricket Club in the final by the score of 1 up.  The match was as pretty a contest as one would want to see.  The two Philadelphians came through to the final in the morning, each winning rather handily, but the gallery generally expected Tillinghast to beat Brown.  The latter, however, was playing in decidedly the best form he has shown during the tournament, and refused to accept the verdict of the knowing ones, finally winning out after a splendid fight in which a mis-stroke at several points might have turned the tide the other way....

While I have established that Mr. Brown was a golfer, I still don't know what his business was.
