About Pierrepont Burt Noyes


Pierrepoint was the son of John Humphrey Noyes and Harriet Maria Worden. He was a product of their eugenic outlook. He brought up in the Oneida Community, New York State, where traditional family structures were set aside in favour of communal child-rearing.

After studying at Colgate University, followed by Harvard University he joined Oneida Limited, the company which emerged from the commune after his father's death. He went on to become president of the company, steering it towards specialising in silverware and stainless steel flatware.[1]

During the First World War he worked for the Federal Government as a Assistant Fuel Administrator. As the war came to an end he was in France selling cutlery. In April 1919 he was persuaded to take up the role as the American Commissioner on the Inter-Allied Rhineland High Commission, a post he held until May 1920.[2]

He stood as Democrat candidate for the United States Senate in 1928 but was unsuccessful. In 1933 he was became President of the Saratoga Springs Authority.
