Myer Nussbaum (1893)

Myer Nussbaum (March 10, 1855 Albany, New York – September 23, 1952 New York City) was an American lawyer and politician from New York.


He was the son of Solomon Nussbaum (1806–1879) and Clara Nussbaum (1816–1898), German emigrants from Neustadt an der Saale. He attended the public schools. He graduated from Albany Law School in 1877, was admitted to the bar, and practiced in Albany. In 1884, he was appointed as a police justice. He married Lillian Van Kuren. The marriage was divorced before 1902.

He was a member of the New York State Assembly (Albany Co., 3rd D.) in 1893; and a member of the New York State Senate (29th D.) from 1896 to 1898, sitting in the 119th, 120th and 121st New York State Legislatures.

On May 28, 1900, he was appointed as referee to hear testimony relating to the business of the American Ice Company, an ice trust which the State authorities wanted to break up. Afterwards he remained in New York City, and practiced law there.

On February 13, 1915, he was appointed as referee to hear testimony to "determine whether the increased prices of bread, flour and wheat have been due to criminal conspiracy."

He was buried at the Beth Emeth Cemetery in Glenmont.
