William Edwin Hall, a Wall St. lawyer, served as the unpaid president of the Boys Clubs of America from 1915-1954. Through his leadership the organization grew from 43 Boys’ Clubs to more than 375 clubs and 350,000 members when he retired in 1954. It has been said that he, more than any one person, made it possible to offer young boys (and now girls) an alternative to a life of delinquency and unhappiness.
