When he was 18 he left home and went to work at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago demonstrating the nickelodeon. This experience was the start of his association with Thomas Edson and he later marketed the Edison phonograph. After that he went to Victor Talking Machine and sold $100,000 worth of phonographs on a trip he made in 1903 to China. In 1906 he formed a company which was to become Babson Bros. and brought his brothers Fred and Gustavus from Seward to run the company with him. This company sold not only phonographs but also Burlington watches, tailor-made clothing and finally the Melotte Cream Separator. This latter product marked the beginning of a line of dairy equipment which later became the sole product of the company.

On leaving Joplin and returning to Chicago a friend of my brother Henry got me a job with the Jeffrey Manufacturing Company at Columbus, Ohio. After two or three years there Henry arranged for me to go to New York City where Babson Bros. was in partnership with Thomas Edison in two businesses, the Phonograph Corporation of Manhattan, which distributed the Edison Phonograph and records and a retail store on 5th Avenue. We had a 5-story building across from the Library and on the ground floor there was a concert hall and we advertised in the New York papers "Tone Tests" which were given three days a week. We had the artists perform with their records to prove that the record was a perfect reproduction of the artist. My oldest brother, Henry, thought I could do better in a business they were interested in, in Canada, and I moved to Winnepeg where I lived for about ten years .... Our business in Canada was wholesale selling to dealers throughout Canada. Then my oldest brother thought I could do better ... distributing the Surge Milking Machine ... so I moved to Syracuse [New York] in 1931. We were

quite succesful in the milking business ... I belong to the Onodaga Golf and Country Club, the Century Club, the University Club and the Rotary Club.

341. Roger Ward10 Babson (188) (Nathaniel9, Gustavus8, Nathaniel7, William6, William5, John4, John3, James2, Thomas1); born 6 Jul 1875 at Gloucester;2873 married Grace Margaret Knight, daughter of Rev. Richard Knight and Jane Milk Cummings, 29 Mar 1900 at Grace's sister's home, 34 School Street, Gloucester. Her father, a Congregational Clergyman, was born at Kingston-on-Hull, England and her mother at Morgan, Orleans County, Vermont. Roger and Grace first met in grammar school at Gloucester before her family moved west to Minnesota. After she graduated from High School at St. Paul, Minnesota, Grace returned east and attended Mt. Holyoke College. As Mr. Babson wrote in his autobiography, he was attracted to Grace because "instead of telling me how wonderful she was, she let me tell her how wonderful I was;"2874,2875

After Grace died, Roger married secondly married Nona Margaret Dougherty 1 Jun 1957 at Wellesley Her father had been born in Ireland and her mother at Bangor, Penobscot County, Maine. Nona graduated with honors from the Massachusetts General Hospital of Nursing and served as Treasurer and Director of Babson's Reports for more than twenty-five years; died 5 Mar 1967 at Lake Wales, Polk Co., FL, at age 91; buried at Babson College, Wellesley Hills, MA.

Roger graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1898 and received LL.D.'s from the University of Florida in 1927, Elon College in 1937, Hendrix College in 1938, American Theological Seminary in 1939, LebanonValley College in 1940, and Stetson University in 1940. He was a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society of London.

An internationally known statistician, Roger was the founder of Babson's Statistical Organization, Babson Park, Massachusetts in 1904; Babson Reports, Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts in 1904; Babson Institute, which became known as Babson College on 25 April 1969, located at Babson Park, Wellesley in 1919. In 1927 he founded with his wife Grace Webber College, located at Babson Park, Florida. He also founded Utopia College, now Midwest Institute, at Eureka, Kansas in 1946; The Open Church Foundation at Gloucester in 1947; Gravity Research Foundation, New Boston, New Hampshire, 1948.

The author of more than forty books on economic and social problems, the most widely read of Roger's books being Business Barometers, published in eight editions and its successor Business Barometers for Profits, Security, Income, which ran to ten editions. In addition to a newspaper column, which commanded 16 million readers, he also wrote hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles. A poplular lecturer on business and financial trends, he attracted attention wherever he went, his piercing blue eyes and dignified, straight posture easily distinguishing him.

Roger was active as an executive, director and investor in the affairs of many corporations, particularly relating to the protection of property, including a number of corporations traded on the New York Stock Exchange, during a business career spanning more than sixty years. He was a pioneer in establishing services which provide investment advice to the individual investor (Babson's Reports being the oldest investment advisory company in America) and was a controlling factor in the affairs of leading financial publications.

Basing his economic theories on the law formulated by the 17th century physicist, Sir Isaac Newton, that for every action there must be an equal and opposite reaction, Roger predicted the 1929 stock market crash about one month before it occured. Crediting Newton for this success in the stock market, Mr. Babson became interested in the study of gravity and in 1948 established the Gravity Research Foundation, which was located in New Boston, New Hampshire from 1949 to 1973. The primary purpose of the foundation is to stimulate interest in gravity and to accomplish this, the foundation offers awards for the best essays on the subject, which are judged by three of the country's leading physicists. The second prize winner in 1975 was Julian Schwinger, a Nobel laureate.

Another foundation which Mr. Babson established was the Open Church Foundation. This evolved from his having found great solace one day in 1940 when he meditated at St. John's Episcopal Church on Middle Street, Gloucester. Having found the solution to his problem through prayer in a church whose doors were open, he felt many other people could be similarly helped if they also had a quiet place to communicate with God. An article published in the Gloucester Daily Times about 1977 pointed out that because of the changing times it is not possible today for most of the 17,000 churches which were once open to remain so, but George M. Rideout, foundation president, was quoted at the time, explaining, "It's not so important that doors be open, but rather the gospel of Jesus Christ be open." Today the foundation distributes thousands of pamphlets around the world through chaplains in the Armed Forces, as well as to private citizens. As Roger often said, "Since we cannot personally visit thousands of churches, the mailman must be our missionary."

The national administrative offices of both of these foundations are now located in Gloucester at 58 Middle Street, Roger's boyhood home. On the window sill of Rogers's third floor bedroom, in this gambrel-roofed home, can still be seen his initials "R.W.B." which he carved as a boy.

His autobiography, Actions and Reactions, reveals that he was a deeply sensitive man. He described in a tender manner the last time he saw his younger sister, Edith Low, before her death. She had given him all her savings ($2.00) as he was leaving for the World's Fair in Chicago and had said she loved him. He wrote,

I shall never forget that morning. It is things like this ... which really influence our lives ... I have learned that the world is not ruled by figures, but by feelings ... The greatest force is love and the greatest asset is friendship."

Grace Margaret Knight was born on 12 Dec 1873 at South Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA.2876 She died on 30 Apr 1956 at Weston at age 82.2877 Mrs. Babson, was very interested in education, and realizing no women's colleges existed which gave young women training in finances and economics, founded Webber College at Babson Park, Florida on 6 April 1927. This was the same day that their first graddaughter, Camilla Grace Webber, was born.

Grace was also widely known for her impressive collection of writings and memorabilia of Sir Isaac Newton, considered to be the finest in this country. In 1978 this was on exhibit in the Sir Isaac Newton Library at Babson College, Wellesley. Located on the second floor of the library is the actual "fore-parlour" of Sir Isaac Newton's London home, where he lived from 1710 to 1725, which Grace had transported to Wellesley. Across the hall is a room filled with Babson Memorabilia, including a lock of blonde hair and small purse of Edith Low Babson, Mr. Babson's 12 year old sister who drowned and for whom their only child was named.
