Biographical History

Edward Carey Gardiner was born in Philadelphia, November 14, 1878, to William Howard Gardiner (1851-1906), a military historian, and Helena Lawrence Baird (1852- 1906), the only child of Henry Carey Baird (1825-1912), a noted Philadelphia publisher. Even though Edward had been educated overseas with tutors and in schools in Italy, Switzerland, and France, he lived most of his life in Philadelphia, as a bachelor and, like many of his ancestors, as a publisher. He joined his grandfather's publishing firm of Henry C. Baird & Co. in 1904. In 1917, shortly after the United States declared war on Germany, Edward decided to retire from publishing and enter the military. He served at Quantico, Virginia, joined the United States Marine Corps, and was honorably discharged in 1919. After his military stint, Edward pursued more civic and leisure opportunities, including travel. Edward Carey Gardiner died in 1945.
