Edmund D. Griffin


Centurion, 1858–unknown

Full Name Edmund Dorr Griffin

Born 27 May 1833 in New York (Manhattan), New York

Died 22 April 1864 in New Rochelle, New York

Proposed by Egbert L. Vielé

Elected 6 March 1858 at age twenty-four

Archivist’s Note: Son of Francis Griffin. There is a possibility that he did not join the club despite documentation of his election, as his name does not appear in any subsequent printed rosters of membership. He may have chosen not to “qualify” for membership (i.e., pay initiation fees). The Century Association has traditionally recognized such cases as former members, however, as rosters were not published annually and it is possible he joined between printings.
