From the Brooklyn Standard Union, June 22, 1907:

Isidor WORMSER, of the banking firm of I.& S. WORMSER, died in his home 836 Fifth avenue, Manhattan, last night.  Mr. WORMSER was born in Landau, Germany. He came to this country when only18 years old with his brother Simon.  At that time the rush to the California gold fields had begun and the young men seized their opportunity. They sailed around the Horn, carrying with them as much merchandise
as their means would permit them to purchase, and entered into business in Sacramento.From the outset they prospered, and in 1870 the two brothers came to this city and established here a banking business, which is now known throughout the world. Mr. WORMSER was a Democratic Presidential Elector in 1892. He was a member of the Stock Exchange, one of the trustees of the Brooklyn Bridge and a member of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He was also a member of the Coney Island Jockey Club, the Criterion and Manhattan clubs.  He leaves a widow, a son, Isidor WORMSER, and a daughter, Mrs. Jefferson SELIGMAN.
