Biography

ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Charles Ezra Cornell was the College Clerk during this period. He was, in fact, the first to serve in that office, and maintained the position from 1897-1902. He was also the College Librarian, which was then a function of the College Clerk. In addition, because of a requirement in the University Charter, he was a member of the University Board of Trustees as the "eldest lineal descendant of Ezra Cornell."
