I am replacing the story of T J Talty's life posted here on Aug 9, 2009 with the current version.
Many thanks to Sharon Carberry for the latest new leads.
T J Talty gave his name to the so-called Talty Millions case of the 1920s and 1930s. He died intestate, leaving estate actually valued at only $239,000, excluding real estate estimated to be value for $50,000. This estate was distributed between first cousins and descendants of predeceased first cousins on both the Talty and McNamara sides (various lawyers also taking their cut of the action).
T J Talty's first name was probably originally Timothy or Thady after his father. He may have been among the many Irish emigrants to change his name to something less Irish-sounding. His first name later appears somewhere as Thadeus. Newspaper articles in 1906 and 1907 call him Theodore. His death certificate gives his FULL NAME as just `T. J. Talty'. The J probably stood for John, as the Chicago Daily Tribune of 28 Sep 1909 calls him John Talty.
BIRTH: On his death certificate, his age is estimated to be "about 65", with the date of birth marked `unknown'. The BIRTHPLACE is `Ireland'. Father's name is Timothy Talty, the cert only asks for maiden name of mother, McNamara. An obituary (see below) gives his age at death as 67.
MARRIAGE: T J Talty's death certificate lists him as single, but the `HUSBAND of' field is also completed, with the word `unknown'.
On his death certificate, T J's occupation is listed as `Hotel Keeper'. This confirms that he is the Theodore J Talty whose career as a hotel manager and proprietor is mentioned in numerous sources.
An 1890/91 Chattanooga TN directory [an Ancestry.com database] lists: T.J. Talty steward, Lookout Inn. This was around the time that his first cousin Peter Talty married Ida Mae Frawley in Chattanooga.
One document in the Talty Millions case refers to `the Estate of T.J.Talty, formerly of Chicago, Illinois, who died intestate in Dade County, Florida, April 1, 1926'. Other sources (see below) confirm that T J Talty was at various times, including before 1896, manager of the Auditorium Hotel in Chicago.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auditorium_Building
, the Auditorium Hotel was part of the Auditorium Building at the northwest corner of Michigan Avenue and Congress Parkway and is now part of Roosevelt University. The building was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1975. When completed, it was the tallest building in the city and largest building in the United States. The 400-room hotel was an 1890 addition to the building.
T. J. Talty was also connected, according to the San Francisco Call of 28 Nov 1904, with the "Palmer House of New York." [sic] According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmer_House
, the Palmer House is also one of the leading hotels in Chicago. It first opened in 1871.
T. J. Talty's sister Anna was married in Chicago in 1893. Whether her brother was still in Chicago at the time of her wedding is not yet certain.
As one writer notes `In 1890 [sic, recte 1895] the Raleigh Hotel opened its doors at the corner of 12th Street and Pennsylvania [in Washington, D.C.]. T. J. Talty, the former manager of enormous Chicago hotels, came to the capital to make an international reputation as an innkeeper. Talty's efficient direction helps to explain the decision to more than double the number of Raleigh bedrooms to 300 within two years of the hotel's opening.' (See `The Development of the Business Sector in Washington, D. C., 1800-1973' by Walter F. McArdle, published in the Records of the Columbia Historical Society, Washington, D.C., Vol. 49, The 49th separately bound book (1973/1974), pp. 556-594; Published by: Historical Society of Washington, D.C.; Stable URL: http://www.jstor.org/stable/40067757
There is an advertisement in the 1896 edition of The Standard Guide: St. Augustine, East Coast, Indian River and Lake Worth by Charles Bingham Reynolds (1856-1940) reading:
PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE AND TWELFTH STREET
Opened January 1, 1895. European plan. For ladies and gentlemen. Most central location in the city.
Entire Construction Absolutely Fireproof.
Every floor lighted by electricity and heated by steam. Complete equipment of public and private baths. Elegant café, ladies' restaurant, private dining and banquet rooms. Handsomely finished and furnished throughout.

T. J. TALTY, Manager, late of the Auditorium Hotel, Chicago
T J Talty's name appears also in similar advertisements which appeared in Rand, McNally & co.'s Handy guide to Washington and the District of Columbia (1899) and Rand, McNally & co.'s Pictorial guide to Washington and environs (1901). The items below suggest that T J Talty remained at the Raleigh until some time in late 1908 or 1909.
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle regularly carried advertisements like the following between 1897 and 1903:
PENNSYLVANIA AV. CORNER TWELFTH ST.
N. W., WASHINGTON, D.C.
EUROPEAN PLAN, ABSOLUTELY FIREPROOF
THE MODERN HOTEL OF THE CITY
T. J. TALTY Manager
For a full history of the Raleigh Hotel, see http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post.cgi?id=2937
: The Raleigh Hotel got its start in 1893 when the Shepherd Centennial Building on the northeast corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 12th Street, NW, was converted from commercial use into the hotel by Washington architect Leon E. Dessez. The hotel expanded quickly. In 1897 three additional floors were added ...
The Washington Weekly Post of 20 Jun 1899 (p.4) reported: `Work on the Raleigh Hotel is being pushed steadily and Manager Talty hopes to have the new building ready for use by early autumn. Three floors of the stately structure on Twelfth street, which completely overshadows the old part of the Raleigh, are now being utilized. The completed building will give to the National Capital a modern hostelry in all that the term implies. The patronage of this house has been heavy from the day of its opening, and it has often been unable to accommodate all who intended to become guests, so that the erection of the new building became a necessity.'http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post.cgi?id=2937
continues: By 1911, the original building was considered too dated and razed ... One of the factors that made the Raleigh such a success was its manager, [Talty's successor] Curt C. Schiffeler, who managed to create a warm and informal atmosphere that pleased the guests. Schiffeler remained at the Raleigh until he retired in 1954.
The year 1900 marked the centenary of the removal of the seat of government to Washington, D.C. In 1901, the Government Printing Office published a report on the centennial celebrations, entitled "1800-1900. Celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the establishment of the seat of government in the District of Columbia." Pp.145-7 list the members of an enormous Committee on Parade and Decoration, which included `Talty, T.J.'.
The Sunday Globe of 2 Mar 1902 reported on its front page on an outbreak of smallpox at the Raleigh Hotel, under the subhead:
`The Qualified Denials of the Health Officer and Manager of the Hotel Do Not Satisfy the ``Globe,'' As Its Information Is Direct and Specific.'
The article noted:
`Early in the week the GLOBE, on the look out for the appearance of the contagion in unexpected places, was informed by a reliable person connected with the Raleigh Hotel that fifteen cases were removed from that hostelry, and that in every case the person removed had developed symptoms of smallpox ... That a panic in the hotel had not resulted was due to the masterful discipline of Manager Talty.
Thursday we sent a GLOBE representative to interview the manager and this is what Mr. Talty said:
``I deny in toto the statement that fifteen persons were removed from this hotel showing symptoms of smallpox. I admit that two persons who left here subsequently developed the disease and I had sent away all those who came in contact with them. I refer you to Dr. Woodward, the Health Officer, who investigated the matter. We have nobody in this house now under suspicion of being affected nor has any person developed the disease while a guest or employe [sic] of the hotel.''
In fairness to the hotel management, the GLOBE gives Manager Talty's statement and supplements the same with Dr. Woodward's corroboration, which is substantially that of Manager Talty's.
T J Talty got a brief mention in a 1940 novel called `In The Money' by William Carlos Williams, published by New Directions. One of the novel's characters, Joe, wrote to another, Gurlie, from the Raleigh Hotel. As Gurlie perused the envelope before opening it, she thought to herself: `European plan. Absolutely fireproof. That must mean it isn't really. T. J. Talty, Manager. What kind of name is that? Sounds French.'
`Washington, D.C., it read at the top of the letter, August 25, 1903, Joe had filled in the 3.'
On 28 Nov 1904, the following appeared in the San Francisco Call newspaper (see viewtopic.php?f=1&t=669
ST. FRANCIS DIRECTORS SELECT NEW MANAGER
T. J. Talty of the Raleigh Hotel of
Washington Agrees to Accept
The directors of the St. Francis
Hotel are said to have finally selected
a new manager in the person of T. J.
Talty of Washington. He will, unless
the present arrangements fall through,
assume charge of the new hostelry on
the first day of the coming year.
Talty has been managing the Hotel
Raleigh of Washington for several
years and was previously connected
with the Palmer House of New York.
He recently came to San Francisco,
registered at the St. Francis under the
assumed name of J. G. Wilson and
spent several days looking over the
hotel and conferring with the directors.
He left three days ago for Washington
with the understanding that he would
resign his position there in time to
enter on his new duties here on Jan-
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Francis_Hotel
, the St. Francis Hotel had opened on 21 Mar 1904. After the San Francisco Earthquake of 18 Apr 1906, the hotel manager, James Woods, wearing his bathrobe, tried to calm the guests. The earthquake did not cause major structural damage to the hotel, but the subsequent fire gutted the hotel.
So it appears that Talty's San Francisco appointment had fallen through, Woods was appointed in his place, and Talty certainly remained for several more years at the Raleigh.
The Alaska State Library Historical Collections (PO Box 110571, Juneau AK 99811-0571) have James A. Wickersham's diary, December 4, 1905 to June 22, 1906, in which T J Talty is mentioned several times. During this period, Wickersham was in Washington seeking confirmation in some judicial office. On 16 Mar 1906, Wickersham wrote:
Raleigh Hotel Manager, also is
interested – he invited Mr. Micou
to lunch with me, and got us acquain
=ted. Micou is son in law, and
law partner with Ex. Sec. of Navy
Herbert, from Alabama, and I
am to meet him in the morning
- he is supposed to have great influ
=ence with Senator Pettus.'
On 21 Mar 1906:
`Pettus told Ex. Sec. of Navy
Herbert – that he was against
me – but that I would be confirm
=ed, and also told my friend
E. B. Smith, of the Post, the
same. Major Richardson
& Talty, Mgr. of the Raleigh Hotel
are now at work also.'
24 Mar 1906:
`Was invited to dinner with
Dr. Whitehead and the gentlemen
interested in his Alaska banks,
but on yesterday I invited Major
Richardson to dinner with me,
so declined. Talty dines with us.
Very quiet but enjoyable dinner with
Talty & Richardson – Talty was
drunk to start in on – so the Major
and I were so chagrined with his
antics that we refrained from getting
18 Apr 1906:
Mgr. Raleigh Hotel told me today
that Col. Boynton, Mgr. Assoc. Press,
had talk with President Tuesday & the
Pres. told him that he was anxious to
see me confirmed & spoke highly about
me, but said that he could not control
the situation in the Senate, &c.'
Many newspapers reported on the shooting of Arthur Brown, ex-U.S. Senator for Utah, by Mrs. Anna M. Bradley of Salt Lake City in a room at the Raleigh Hotel on the afternoon of Saturday, 8 Dec 1906, and on the subsequent events.
The New York Times of Sunday, 9 Dec 1906 reported that a `floor maid heard two shots in Mr. Brown's apartment. She immediately notified the office, and Theodore J. Talty, manager of the hotel, hurried to investigate.' The victim died from his wounds on 12 Dec (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Brown_(Utah
The Ohio Plain-Dealer of 9 Dec 1906 reported that `Manager Theodore J. Talty of the Raleigh was notified of the shooting within two or three minutes after it occured. He hurried to Senator Brown's room to ascertain the facts. He found Senator Brown, fully dressed, lying on the floor in the center of the room. Mrs. Bradley was standing near the dresser. She was attired in street costume, including her hat. One of her hands was gloved, the glove having been removed from the other.
Senator Brown, as Mr. Talty stooped over him to enquire what the matter was, feebly indicated Mrs. Bradley and remarked, calmly, ``She shot me.'' '
The Duluth News-Tribune of 9 Dec 1906 reported that that `Manager Theodore J. Talty of the Raleigh was notified of the shooting within two or three minutes after it occured. He hurried to Senator Brown's room. He found Brown, fully dressed, lying on the floor. Mrs. Bradley was standing near the dresser. She was attired in street costume.
Senator Brown, as Mr. Talty stooped over him to enquire what the matter was, feebly indicated Mrs. Bradley and calmly remarked: ``She shot me.'' A hurried examination of the wounded man was made by Mr. Talty. On opening his coat and waistcoat he discovered that a bullet had penetrated his abdomen. He sent for some brandy and poured it down Senator Brown's throat. The wounded man was growing rapidly weaker and Mr. Talty directed a servant to summon the Emergency hospital ambulance.
Senator Brown retained consciousness and was perfectly calm and collected. He made no statement to Mr. Talty beyond the one indicated that he had been shot by Mrs. Bradley.
The woman continued in the room while Mr. Talty was attending Senator Brown, but offered no assistance. Finally Mr. Talty ordered her to leave the room. She declined.
``I will remain here,'' said she. ``I am the mother of his two children.'' Mr. Talty was too busy administering to Senator Brown to attempt to enforce his order, but in glancing about the room he discovered a revolver lying on the bureau. He put it into his pocket and later turned it over to the police.
The hospital ambulance presently arrived and the wounded man was hurried to the hospital. An officer then arrested Mrs. Bradley. She made no resistance and refused to admit having shot Senator Brown, referring all those who enquired to Senator Sutherland of Utah.
``Senator Brown has been a guest at the Raleigh since the fifth,'' said Manager Talty, ``having come here to argue a case before the United States supreme court. The case was expected to be called for hearing next Monday. Mrs Bradley arrived here today, just before noon. She came to the hotel direct from the train. She registered as `A.B.Brown' and was assigned a room in the usual way. So far as I am aware she made no inquiry about Senator Brown and no one about the hotel knew that they even were acquainted with each other. How she found his room, which merely happened to be on the same floor as her own, although the two apartments were some distance removed from each other, I do not know. Only Senator Brown and Mrs. Bradley know anything of their meeting and, to me, at least, neither of them vouchsafed the slightest explanation.'' '
The Philadelphia Inquirer of 9 Dec 1906 had a very similar account.
The Maryland Sun of 14 Dec 1906 reported on an inquest held over Senator Brown's body. At the inquest, ``Theodore J. Talty, manager of the Raleigh Hotel, was called and identified Mrs. Bradley as the woman he found in Senator Brown's room. Manager Talty said he was told that someone had committed suicide on the second floor. He immediately went up and entered the room. The first question he asked was:
``Who did the shooting?'' to which Brown replied:
``She did,'' pointing to Mrs. Bradley. He then turned to her and asked her if she was his wife, which she answered in the negative, adding after a slight pause:
``But I am the mother of his two children.''
When Mrs. Bradley said she was not his wife, Mr. Talty said he ordered her out of the room, but when she said she was the mother of his two children she appealed to him, and he said nothing further about her leaving. Mr. Talty remained in the room until the arrival of the surgeons.''
The Maryland Sun of 23 Jan 1907 reported that the case was taken up by the grand jury the previous day, and that witnesses summoned included Theodore J. Talty of the Raleigh Hotel.
T J Talty was also a witness at Mrs Bradley's trial. The New York Times of Friday 15 Nov 1907 reported that the previous day `Manager T. J. Talty of the hotel repeated his oft-told story of the killing of Mr. Brown. He said that when he entered the room Mrs. Bradley stood by the side of the prostrate form of the man.
``Who did this?'' he asked of Brown, and the latter replied: ``That woman over there,'' pointing to Mrs. Bradley.
``Is she your wife?'' asked Manager Talty, and Brown replied in the negative. He then directed Mrs. Bradley to leave the room, whereupon she protested, declaring that she was ``the mother of Brown's two children.'' ``Mr. Brown did not deny this charge,'' the witness continued, ``and I allowed her to remain.'' He had asked Mr. Brown if he had any message that he desired to have him send to any one, and the latter expressed a desire that his law partner, Mr. Gunn, be summoned.
``Who shall I say did the shooting?'' he had asked of Brown, and the latter replied: ``Just tell him that Mrs. Bradley did it, and he'll know; all the people out there know; she has given me trouble all my life.''
The Chicago Daily Tribune (1872-1922); Nov 15, 1907; pg. 7 also named T. J. Talty in its report of the Bradley trial (BRADLEY TRIAL UNDER WAY).
The New York Times of 4 Dec 1907 reported that at 1:20am the previous morning the jury had rendered a verdict of `not guilty' in the case of Mrs. Bradley after a three-week trial.
The Washington Times of 12 Dec 1908 reported the arrest of five employes [sic] of the Raleigh Hotel on charges of conspiracy to defraud the hotel: `For several months, it is said, Theodore J. Talty, the manager, has known that the full amount of money that should have been taken in for drinks every day had not been accounted for. On days when business was known to have been unusually heavy there was not a corresponding increase in the cash, it is said.
Hotel detectives, aa well as private detectives, were put to work on the case, but evidence that would warrant taking any action could not be obtained. Finally Mr Talty appealed to the police and Howlett and Pratt were assigned to the case.'
According to http://www.congressionalcemetery.org/PD ... roeder.pdf
, John Christian Schroeder ``conducted the Raleigh Hotel orchestra during the years T.J. Talty was manager of the hotel.'' Schroeder died in 1927 aged 66 and had retired about 10 years earlier.
On 28 Sep 1909, the Chicago Daily Tribune reported that the Congress Hotel company's lease on the Auditorium hotel was due to expire at midnight the following Thursday. Among those under consideration for the position of manager was `John [sic] Talty, formerly manager of the Raleigh hotel of Washington.' So it appears that T. J. Talty had by this time left the Raleigh.
T. J. Talty did indeed return to his previous place of employment at the Auditorium Hotel in Chicago. Between 10 Nov 1909 and 30 Nov 1910, the Chicago Tribune carried advertisements for The Auditorium Hotel:
`THE AUDITORIUM HOTEL
MICHIGAN BLVD. AND CONGRESS STREET CHICAGO
For twenty years the leading hotel of the city,
will be carefully maintained in that Leading
Position by its
which went into effect Oct. 1, 1909. Upwards
of $[?]300,000 will be expended for improvements,
new plumbing, decorations and furniture, which
will be introduced in such a manner as to cause
NO INTERRUPTION TO BUSINESS
T. J. TALTY, Manager'
Thus, he should be found in Chicago for the 1910 census. The Auditorium Hotel appears to have been in District 141 of Ward 1 in Chicago for that census.
T. J. Talty did not remain long at the Auditorium, or in his next position. The Chicago Daily Tribune of 26 Feb 1911 (p.3) reported that `T. J. Talty, assistant manager and steward of the Congress hotel, has resigned.' He was replaced as first assistant manager by Paul Gores and as steward by Edward Benish of New York. The Congress Hotel and Auditorium Hotel appear to be just around the corner from each other.
The items below show that some time between 1911 and 1920 (see below), T. J. Talty left Chicago again, and became proprietor of the Alba Court Inn in New Smyrna Beach in Florida. Some time around 1918 to 1920 he came to live in the newly-constructed city of Coral Gables, Florida.
Coral Gables was developed by George Edgar Merrick during the Florida land boom of the 1920s (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coral_Gables,_Florida
). T J Talty may have been involved in that boom.
In December 1922, the Miami Herald Record in its Business and Hotel Directory of the East Coast of Florida carried regular advertisements for
`Alba Court Inn
OPEN ALL THE YEAR
REFINED - COMFORTABLE
WASHINGTON ST. & FAULKNER ST.
T. J. TALTY, PROP.'
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle Winter Resort Directory, 1923-24 gives a more detailed description. The Alba Court Inn was one of four establishments in New Smyrna Beach in this directory. It accomodated 75 guests, was half a mile from the local (railway?) depot, was near water, the proprietor was T J Talty and the season ran from November to March.
T J Talty's sister, Mrs Anna Teresa Webber, was living with him at the Alba Court Inn when she died in 1924.
At http://fulltextt10.fcla.edu/DLData/SN/S ... file24.pdf
is a directory of New Smyrna (an incorporated city in Volusia county) from Polk's Florida Gazetteer and Business Directory 1925 in which the first entry is: `Alba Court Inn T J Talty prop hotel'http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/rapid ... each/plann
ewsmyrna.html says that the Alba Court Inn, a 26-room hotel, `was built in 1906 by James and Clyde Pennell. The three-story lobby provided cross-ventilation to the guest rooms. Steam heat and gas were supplemented by in-room plumbing added in 1917.'
The hotel address is 114 or 115 Washington Street.
`Maine cottages: Fred L. Savage and the architecture of Mount Desert' by John Morrill Bryan, Fred L. Savage, Richard Cheek (House & Home, 2005) says that by 1911 Herman Savage, brother of Fred, owned the Alba Court Hotel. Thus Talty must have acquired it after 1911 - possibly around the time of the 1917 improvements.
According to http://www.myhometownnews.net/index.php?id=32623
, the Alba Court Inn, built in 1906, was demolished Abt 19 Oct 2007.
T J Talty owned Capital Stock in the Dade County Security Company, a Florida corporation, of the aggregate par value of $40,164.55. For the history of that company, see http://www.historicpreservationmiami.co ... 20bldg.pdf
: "First organized in 1901, the Dade County Security Company was one of the most important financial institutions in the County by 1920, and was the largest building and loan society in Florida. The company moved to its NE 1st Avenue location in 1923, retrofitting an existing building to meet its needs. [Soon] finding its existing building too small, [it] embarked on the construction of a new building, which was completed in 1926."
By the time of his death in 1926, according to his death certificate, T J Talty was living at 1036 Obispo Avenue, Coral Gables, FL, USA, and had been living at that address for a number of years - possibly 6 or 8 years, although the numeral is difficult to read, and Coral Gables was only beginning to be developed at the time of T J's death. Thus Talty must have moved to Florida in 1920 or earlier.
DEATH: See Vol. 290, No. 6290. Date of death is 1 April 1926. The informant was his maternal first cousin `James McNamara, New York City.'
BURIAL: He was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery. This was presumably the cemetery now known as Woodlawn Park North which opened in 1913 and is described on its website at http://www.caballeroriverowoodlawn.com/ ... ility.html
as being located within the city of Miami, and just minutes away from Coral Gables. The cemetery is at 3260 South West 8 Street, Miami, FL 33135.
Hotel monthly, Volume 34 - Page 57 author/publisher: John Willy, 1926 [courtesy of Sharon Carberry]:
TJ Talty died last month at his home in Coral Gables. Florida, aged 67years. Mr. Talty was for 30 years a prominent hotel executive...He was manager for years of the Raleigh in Washington and the Auditorium in Chicago.
The Talty estate was administered by the afore-mentioned James McNamara, who employed as solicitor Mr Paul C Taylor, attorney-at-law, 506/9 Congress Building, Congress, FL.
The Irish next-of-kin (first cousins), through their solicitor in Ireland, empowered Mr John J Dwyer, 40 Wall St, NY, NY to represent them in the proceedings.
A distribution of portion of the assets took place in 1927, each of the Irish beneficiaries receiving thru Mr Dwyer approx $1000. At the same time the USA next-of-kin received a sum of $2107 from Mr Taylor as a first disbursement. Repeated attempts were made without success to get Mr Dwyer to complete the distribution and to furnish an account of the same.
In 1932, the Irish claimants communicated with the Irish Free State Consul General at NY, who replied on 27 Jul 1932 suggesting that Mr James Gilvarry, attorney, 261 Court St, Brooklyn, NY might help.
Mr Gilvarry was then given power-of-attorney to act for the Irish claimants, but although protracted correspondence then took place no further distribution was effected, nor could any information be obtained as to the details of the distribution made in 1927, or as to the present position of the estate.
On 13 Jan 1933, the Irish Free State Consul General wrote that distribution of the estate had still not been completed.
Nothing further was heard until Aug 1937, when a letter came from Mr Taylor, Ingraham Building, Miami, FL, intimating that further estate the property of the deceased had been located in TX in the form of land, and asking for power-of-attorney to him and Mr W F Johnston of Harris County, TX to deal with the matter. No indication is given as to the value of the TX land but the form of power-of-attorney which Mr Taylor enclosed provided for payment to him and Mr Johnston for their services in disposing of the property on a 50% basis.
The Irish claimants would have been glad to know what means there were of compelling Mr Dwyer to furnish an account of the distribution to date and to complete the distribution, and whether there was any practicable alternative to entrusting Mr Taylor with the disposal of the new assets.
