1 1900 census in Washington, DC showed a family of three. Father was Charles F. born in New Jersey and his parents were both from Germany. His wife is Nancy B. having been born in England and her parents were also born in England. Charles was born Feb 1839 and Nancy was born April 1844. Shows his occupation at Wa??lmann Library, presumably in DC. They have a son Frank G. born Aug 1868 in DC and at 31yo was still living at home. There appears to be a clue to that. For the parents it shows they can read, write, and speak english. For the son, it shows reading and writing but not speaking. To the right it says D.D. which I am guessing means deaf and dumb which might explain his living with his parents at his age. Wurdemann, John V. (I14607)

3 Audrey May Vanderbilt- Wurdemann was born in Wisconsin. After winning the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry she and her husband Joseph Auslander moved to another location. Auslander by the way means "Out of this land". Würdemann, Audrey May Katherine Vanderbilt (I14008)
 
4 Audrey Wurdemann was an American poet, and the youngest winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry at the age of 24, for her collection Bright Ambush. She was the great-great-granddaughter of Percy Bysshe Shelley. She never attended grammar school and entered high school at the age of 11.

Her first collection of poetry, 'The House of Silk' was published when she was 16, sponsored by California poet George Sterling. She was a 1931 honors graduate of the University of Washington. After college she traveled through Asia.

She married poet and novelist Joseph Auslander in 1932 and moved to New York City, where he taught at Columbia. They moved to Washington, DC when Auslander was appointed the first Poet Laureate Consultant in poetry of the Library of Congress. She subsequently collaborated with him on the novels My Uncle Jan and The Islanders.

They spent their last years living in Coral Gables, Florida.

7 Charles and his wife Anna were found on the June, 1880 census in DC. He showed his occupation as a mathematical instrument maker. It says his dad was from Prussia and his mom from what looks like New Jersey. Anna and her family were all from Canada so perhaps they met in Minnesota where Charles was born. I am further wondering if he is an older brother to William Wurdeman as William had a son Charles and they both worked in the DC area in the same field...coincidence? Wurdemann, Charles F. (I14610)

Smithsonian Institution, 2: Blenniidae

Blennius multifilis Girard, 1858:169.
[Syntypes]
USNM [8168 (17)], “specimens collected at SL Joseph’s Island, Texas, by G. Wurdemann.” Remarks: Girard (1858) neither indicated the number of specimens nor a catalog number for his syntypes. Girard (1859:27-28), in reporting on the same specimens, provided a table of specimens for Blennius multifilis in which he twice listed the catalog number 649. Beside the first 649 he indicated “1 adult” and beside the second 649, “17 young.” The USNM catalog ledger, appropriately, indicates the presence of 18 specimens in USNM 649, together with the correct collection data, but there is no indication that these specimens are types (other lots, pertaining to different species, with adjacent catalog numbers are indicated as types). We were unable to locate a lot bearing USNM 649. A search of the collection, however, showed that USNM 8168, Hypleurocheilus geminatus (Wood) (a senior synonym of Blennius multifilis), comprising 17 specimens (23.4-65.9 mm SL), had the same collection data as USNM 649. This suggests strongly that the 17 specimens reported by Girard (1859:28) were assigned a new catalog number, and that the single specimen has been lost. Accordingly, we consider the specimens in USNM 8168 to be syntypes. Bath (1976:183), understandably unaware of the circumstances, reported that there was no type material for Blennius multifilis

Interview with Paul Thiry
Conducted by Meredith Clausen
At the Artist’s home
September 15 & 16, 1983

“MEREDITH CLAUSEN: Who were your professors at the time?

PAUL THIRY: Carl Gould of course was the head, and he was also architect for the campus, and of course he had good training. He was a Beaux Arts man from Paris, and he’d gone to Harvard and no one could question his qualifications. And I will say that he was modern in the sense that he fostered the idea of prefabrication, and actually he’d built a house for himself on Bainbridge Island that was an assembly of doors; I might say that he bought the doors and then built the house on top of the doors. (laughter) And then too he made ventures into modern, it was kind of modernistic, somewhat of basis for change in architecture. But this didn’t get into our training in school.

Finally in 1927, there were three others and myself who [went to] Fontainebleau. The previous year, Walter Wurdeman, who later became a partner with Welton Becket– who also went to Fontainebleau with me; he preceded us in school and he came back with great reports on how he enjoyed it and how much he learned. And it’s true, we learned a great deal. At Fontainebleau we had illustrious professors and…”

MEREDITH CLAUSEN: Now was Paris and the Atelier Gromort in between Fontainebleau and Italy?

PAUL THIRY: That was right after Fontainebleau, you see, and I stayed in France, oh, it was two or three weeks. Becket and Wurdeman had gone ahead, and I met them in Rome.

********************************
The General Petroleum Building, also known as the Mobil Oil Building and the Pegasus Apartments, is a highrise building in Downtown Los Angeles that was built in 1949. It was designed by Wurdeman and Becket and P.J. Walker in the Moderne style. The building was later converted into apartments operated under the name Pegasus. In 2004, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places based on architectural criteria.

19 William Würdemann(1811–1900)—known for having had “a decided influence on observers and instrument makers throughout the United States, as he introduced among us extreme German methods where extreme English methods had formerly prevailed”—was born in Bremen, studied in Heidelberg, and moved to Washington, D.C., to work for the United States Coast Survey. In 1836, having proved his worth, Würdemann became the Survey’s Chief Mechanician. He went into business on his own in 1849, advertising as a Mathematical and Optical Instrument Manufacturer, but maintaining a cosy relationship with the Coast Survey. He supervised the Survey’s instrument shop in 1867–1869; his son Charles worked in that shop in the early 1870s; and he always had easy access to their dividing engine and other machine tools. While the Coast Survey was Würdemann’s most important customer, he made instruments for other federal agencies as well. Würdemann also helped Camill Fauth, Edward Kubel, George N. Saegmuller, and other German instruments makers get their start in the United States. Würdemann’s shop closed in 1881.
