Publisher and military officer. A lifelong bachelor, at age 20 he became a clerk in D. Appleton and Company, the famed publishing firm started by his grandfather Daniel (1785-1849). He became a partner in the firm in 1879 and rose to Vice President and General Manager before retiring in 1913. Appleton enlisted in the National Guard as a Private in 1871 and worked his way through the ranks to become Colonel and Commander of the New York Guard's Seventh Regiment in 1889, a position he held until 1916. Turning down numerous promotions so he could remain with his command, Appleton was awarded the rank of Brevet Major General in recognition of his more than 40 years of service to the Seventh Regiment. His funeral was held at the Seventh Regiment Armory and was followed by a large parade through Manhattan of military members, veterans, and police officers, followed by a motorcade to his graveside service in Brooklyn.
