Horace Winfield Wyman (1861-1905)

1905 Obituary [1]

HORACE WINFIELD WYMAN died on October 11, 1905, at his home, 58 West Street, Worcester, Massachusetts. He was born in Worcester on May 30, 1861, and was the only son of Horace Wyman.

The firm of Wyman & Gordon, which he founded, made its start in a small shop of two rooms—one for drop forging, and one for the machine work; but the business prospered, and eventually became one of the most important drop-forging shops in the United States, and in 1903 an additional plant was built in Cleveland.

He also, in 1889, in company with his father, Horace Wyman, organised the Worcester Storage Co., of which he was treasurer and manager. He was a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and of the Engineers Club of New York. He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1897. He frequently attended the Institute meeting, and during the visit of the Institute to America in 1904 he was an active member of the Cleveland Reception Committee.
