William Bayard Van Rensselaer


William Bayard Van Rensselaer attended St. Paul’s School from 1869 to 1875 and is a member of the Form of 1874.

The book, Noted living Albanians and state officials. A series of biographical sketches by David Addison Harsha (published in 1891, pg. 451), says this about Van Rensselaer:

In 1869, when a boy of thirteen, he became a student of St. Paul’s school, New Hampshire, an institution designed for larger boys, at that time having about fifty pupils, but since grown to over three hundred, including at present a number of Albany boys. There for six years he made a steady and successful progress in ascending the hill of science. When those six years of study had passed away, our young student, now nineteen years of age, was well prepared to enter college. And in 1875 we find him a freshman in Harvard university, . . . where on completing the regular course of four years he graduated in 1879. After this he attended the Harvard Law school for one year . . .
