Mr. Olmsted is secretary of the J. G. Curtis Leather Company and to this
office for many years he gave the full limit of his abilities, p;aying an
important part in the building of the industry. In recent years, however, he
has devoted most of his time to the Long Island Lighting Company of New York
City, of which he is Vice President, and to other corporate interests in that
While his business associations are now largely in the East, Mr. Olmsted
is a loyal Ludlow citizen maintaining his residence here and taking an active
part in the social and religious development of the community. A member of
the National Committee Boy Scouts of America, a trustee of Allegheny College,
a member of the official board of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Kane,
Pa., he serves and supports institutions idealistic to his nature.
Mr. Olmsted has a finely developed sense and love of the beautiful.
Largely through his generosity and effort was created our magnificent
Community Park and largely by his example came the inspiration for civic
improvement in our village.
