New York Stock Brokers: William S. Alley


W. S. Alley

Dave Thompson scan

David Thompson found a New York Times article on this gentleman which was highlighted in a post on August 19.  Following repeated losses in the stock market Mr. Alley tragically took his own life in 1907, and at the Larchmont Yacht Club at which he was a founding and senior member.  Alley was forced to sell his seat on the NYSE in order to pay his creditors.

At the time of the original August 19 post a photo was not available of Mr. Alley.  The image below comes from King's Views of the New York Stock Exchange.
