Irving O. Ball1

M, #34303, b. 28 January 1865, d. 31 January 1941
Hamilton Hotel owned and operated by Irving O. Ball
     Irving O. Ball was born on 28 January 1865 at Block Island, Newport Co., RI.2 He was the son of William Pitt Ball and Sarah E. Champlin.1 Irving O. Ball married Caroline P. Briant, daughter of Nicholas Byram Briant and Eunice Munson Parsons, circa 1890.3 Irving O. Ball died on 31 January 1941 at Providence, Providence Co., RI, at age 76.4
     From the website "Streets of Washington": The first Hamilton was a genteel landmark at the end of the 19th century, noted for the easy leather chairs in its lobby and the sophistication of its residents. Many members of Congress stayed there and thus it was reportedly the "scene of much political gossip." In 1907 the hotel was sold to its long-time manager, Irving O. Ball, for $125,000. The neighborhood at that time was a growing center of social life and commerce. Plans were announced in 1911 to raze the hotel and replace it with a new eight-story edifice, to be designed by Appleton P. Clark. However, such a building was never constructed. Instead, it would be another eleven years before the 1877 building was razed and replaced. He and Caroline P. Briant sailed from Los Angeles CA and arrived on 27 January 1930 at Honolulu, Oahu Island, HI.2      Postcard image of the Hamilton Hotel courtesy of the "Streets of Washington" website.
