Stephen Noyes
Birth: 28 AUG 1833 in Brookfield, Worcester, Massachusetts
Death: 08 MAR 1885 in De Land, Volusia, Florida

GRAD: 1853 Harvard College, Boston North, Middlesex, Massachusetts

He had among his classmates at Harvard, President Charles William
Eliot, Prof. Sylvester Waterhouse, Prof. James M. Pierce and William L. Gage, D.D.

Soon after leaving college he began to reveal decided tastes and capacities as a librarian and bibliophilist. Five years after graduating he was put in charge of the Mercantile Library of Brooklyn, having then only about 3,000 volumes. Such evidence did he give of ability in this department, that he was called away to the Congressional Library at Washington, and for some years was there employed. But the managers of the Brooklyn Library so much felt his loss that they prevailed upon him to come back. His great work as a librarian was really done in Brooklyn, though he wrought faithfully and well at Washington. The Brooklyn Library of 3,000, before he left it grew to 83,000. The catalogue which he prepared of this Brooklyn Library, and which was published a short time before his death, is regarded as something new and original, and marking an era in publications of this class. Ae. 51 y.

Soon after marrying, he moved to New York as a wholesale dry goods
merchant but was subsequently president of Lamaz Insurance Co
