Excerpt from Bulletin of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers, 1920, Vol. 50: Founded Nov; 30 1864

On Sunday morning, January 4, 1920, after a long illness, William J. Battison, Assistant Secretary and Statistician of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers, died at his home in Needham at the ripe age of seventy-eight years. Born in Ampthill, Bedford County, England, he was brought, when a very young boy, to this country by his mother to join his father, a carpenter and worker in hard wood, who had been settled in Boston for a few years before their arrival. The son attended the Grammar schools of the city, and after spending two years in the High School, where he was awarded one of the highly prized Franklin medals for scholarship, became a bookkeeper for the Leatherbee Lumber Company. Marrying soon thereafter he left the company and sold lumber on commission, securing through his friend, Frank W. Williams, an assistant of Dr. John L, Hayes, desk room in the office of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers, whose headquarters were then at 70 Kilby Street, Boston. In his spare moments he helped with the work of the Association, and upon the retirement of Mr. Williams in 1883, Mr. Battison was chosen Mr. Williams successor as the assistant of Doctor Hayes, Secretary of the Association. In this office he remained until his death, serving under every Secretary the Association has had, from Dr. John L.Hayes to the present incumbent, Paul T. Cherington.

From the death of Doctor Hayes on April 18, 1887, to February 27, 1889, when Mr. S. N. D. North was chosen his successor, Mr. Battison was acting Secretary.
