JORDAN, Conrad N., banker, born in New York city, 20 April, 1830. He studied in private schools until he was thirteen years of age, and then, entering a printing office, learned the trade and became a compositor, which occupation he followed until 1852. He then was appointed clerk in the Hanover bank of New York, and in 1864 was made cashier of the Third national bank of that city. In 1880 he became treasurer of the New York, Ontario, and Western railroad, but resigned in 1884, and in 1885 was appointed assistant treasurer of the United States, which office he resigned in 1887 to accept the post of vice president of the Western national bank in New York city.
