Biographical / Historical

Raymond Bontecou Haynes (1891?-circa 2000?) was originally from Emporia, Kansas. He attended school at Phillips Academy in Andover and then MIT, graduating in 1913 with a degree in civil engineering. Haynes moved to New York where he became a bond salesman with Liggett, Hichborn. In 1916, he went into military training at Plattsburgh, New York, with the 6th Regiment, Company L, possibly of the New York National Guard Cavalry. He served in the military in France until 1919. After the war, Haynes returned to New York where he resumed working as a bond salesman for Redmond & Co. at 33 Pine Street. In 1922, he married Edith Louise Williams (1890?-1978), a graduate of Smith College. Among other activities, later in life Edith was a member of the Board of Managers for the Presbyterian Home for Aged Women. Raymond and Edith would have two children, Elizabeth and Robert. Elizabeth would assist her father in the preparation of his memoirs, now at the Library of Congress.
