About Edward Sidney Rothchild

In 1890, Edward was a wholesale liquor dealer living in Portland (passport application). At the time of the 1910 census, Edward, Stella, and son Lewis were living at 2108 Jackson Street in San Francisco. He was a 1/3 owner of Hoffman, Rothchild & Co, wholesale clothiers, and owned the Bulletin Building and property at the corner of Geary and Grant.

In 1914, he became President of Public National Bank in NY. In 1920, Edward was living at 820 5th Ave, NYC (built in 1916 with one 18 room apartment on each floor) according to his passport application. Another passport application from 1923 lists his address as the Ritz Carlton Hotel in NYC.

A New York Times article from 2/19/1920 reports " the six-story building at 537 Fifth Avenue was leased by Edward S. Rothchild, President of the Public National Bank to the Nivlen Realty Company" at a record annual rent of $1,750 a front foot. He had purchased the property in 1910 for $400,000.

In 1925, he was President of the Chelsea Exchange Bank. The Chelsea Bank and Trust Company was closed 12/24/1930 "after runs on the main office of the bank, at 20 East Fortyfifth Street, and its six branches, marked in some instances by rioting, had threatened the stability of the institution." (NYT)

Edward was struck and killed by a taxi on 5th Avenue September 1, 1943.
