SINGERLY, William Miskey, journalist, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 27 December, 1832. He was educated in the Philadelphia high-school, and trained to mercantile business. From 1859 till 1881 he was connected with the city railways, and since 1877 he has been the publisher of the Philadelphia "Record." His newspaper has been the instrument for correcting various abuses. In 1884 he effected arrangements by which the people of Philadelphia obtained fuel for one quarter less than they had paid. He has built 700 dwellings in a previously unimproved suburb of Philadelphia. Besides his finely appointed printing-office, he conducts extensive pulp- and paper-mills at Elkton, Maryland, and has devoted much attention to breeding beef and dairy cattle and trotting-horses on model farms in Pennsylvania and Kentucky.
