ALEXANDER STEELE LYMAN, for twenty-two years General Attorney of the New York Central Railroad,and since 1925 also Valuation Counsel of the New York Central Lines, died of heart disease March 7 at 7:30 P. M., after a five months' illness. He had been confined to his home, Shore Acres, Mamaroneck, since last October, when he was obliged to relinquish visiting his office, though he kept in touch with it daily until a few days before his death.

Mr. Lyman was almost seventy years old, having been born in New Orleans, April 8, 1860. His early education was in private preparatory schools, and he finished his course at Chamberlain Institute in 1880. He was graduated from New York University at the head of his class in 1884, and two years later was granted the degree of LL.B. cum laude from the Law School at Columbia University, New York. He was admitted to the Bar shortly after his graduation and while he was employed as a clerk in the office of former Judge Horace Russell.

Long before Mr. Lyman became a member of the New York Central's Law Department, he represented the railroad in the Park Avenue Viaduct damage cases, and his skillful handling of the many fine points of the law involved won him much favorable attention. He was at that time (1897) a member of the firm of Blair, Phelps & Lyman. The following year he acted as counsel to the receiver of the Brooklyn
Elevated Railroad Company, and in April, 1899, when the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company acquired the properties of the former company, he was given full charge of the Claim Department. In 1901, after a successful reorganization of this department and a complete clearing up of the calendar of claims against the company,he resigned to go into the partnership of Blair, Price & Lyman.

He was a member and the treasurer of St. Thomas' Episcopal Church at Mamaroneck, where he had resided since 1917.
