Category talk:Verley, Albert

M. Verley's dates are difficult to track down, but he seems still to have been living in New York in 1944, according to a contemporary New York Times report [1]. As a chemist, he also filed a patent in 1895 with Marius Otto [2], when he must have been aged at least 21. Surprisingly very little information seems to have been published about him, but the US Sociai Security Index doesn't record his death, suggesting that he left the US sometime after 1944. A genealogical source [3] identifies a man of this name who was born on 8 January 1867 at Pas de Calais, and died on 27 November 1959 at Hauts de Seine; unfortunately it doesn't state his occupation, which would have confirmed whether or not this was the same man. However, in the absence of other information, we should probably err on the side of caution and block his "Pastorale sonore" until 1 January 2010, on the assumption that it was this Albert Verley died in 1959. This can always be changed if more definitive information comes to light — P.davydov 16:34, 13 March 2009 (EDT)

I think you've found him. Page 122 of Orledge's book describes him as having a perfume factory located in the Paris suburb Neuilly, and the genealogical reference gives the place of death as Neuilly sur Seine. Carolus 02:45, 26 April 2009 (EDT)

It's good to know I was on the right scent :-) — P.davydov 03:25, 28 April 2009 (EDT)
