Williams is in the bond department of the Bankers Trust Company of New York City.
He writes: "I worked for the Trust Company of America in New York City, for three years, first as a messenger, in which job I learned short cuts and the proper use of a transfer; as a bookkeeper, where I learned to add correctly, and as an assistant auditor, where I learned enough to gather nerve to
call myself an accountant. The title landed me a job in charge of the branch account department of the Interwoven Stocking Company of New Brunswick, where I remained until it occurred to me that the lack of dyestuffs might cause a shortage in Yale
blue. In order to see that this did not happen, I accepted a position as manager of the Weiller Manufacturing Company, manufacturers of dyestuffs. I remained with this company
until January i, 1917, when I took up my present work."
