About William Bayard Cutting
WILLIAM BAYARD CUTTING (January 12, 1850 – March 1, 1912) was the son of Fulton Cutting and Elise Justine Bayard. When he was two years old his mother died and her parents, Robert and Elizabeth (McEvers) Bayard, took care of him and his younger brother, Fulton. Educated in a private school in New York, he graduated from Columbia College at the age of nineteen, and from the Columbia Law School in 1871, with A.B., A.M., and LL.D. degrees. He was admitted immediately to the New York Bar but did not practice, as his time was claimed by innumerable business, civic, and philanthropic activities. On April 26, 1877, he married Olivia Peyton Murray, daughter of Bronson Murray and Ann Eliza Peyton. They had four children: William Bayard Cutting, Jr. (deceased), Justine Bayard Ward (deceased), Bronson Murray Cutting (deceased), and Olivia James (deceased).
