Alexander Cameron Walker, born in New York City, was educated at New York Public School #109 and the Packard Commercial Institute, with additional study at the American Institute of Banking. The son of Scottish-born stonecutter and builder Alexander Walker (General Society President, 1912), he began work at his father’s Colonial Bank as a clerk in 1901, eventually advancing to President. He retired from this position in 1929 to pursue a career in Real Estate, while managing his father’s estate. He was a member of the General Society for sixty-five years, during which he also served as Second Vice President (1925) and Vice President (1926). He was also a longtime member and frequent chairman of the Executive and Finance Committees, as well as serving on the Library, Membership and School Committees.
