EDDY, Ezra Butler, Canadian capitalist, born near Bristol, Vermont, 22 August 1827. He was educated at the public school, and when fifteen years of age went to New York, where he secured employment with a merchant. After a year he returned to Vermont, and in 1851 engaged in the manufacture of friction matches at Burlington. In 1854 he removed to Hull, opposite Ottawa, Canada, and there began the manufacture of matches, adding thereto, in 1856, the manufacture of articles of woodenware. In 1858 he added lumbering to his other enterprises, and the yearly amount of this business is now (1887) nearly $2,000,000. Mr. Eddy was elected to the Quebec legislature in 1861, and was a representative for four years. When the Ottawa ladies' College was established he was made its president, and held that office for several years.
