OBITUARIES / David Granger, 99, Sat On NYSE for Longest

David Granger, an Olympic medalist who occupied a seat

on the New York Stock Exchange for 76 years, died Friday in a Manhattan nursing

home. He was 99.

Granger, who began his Wall Street career in 1926 after working at his

father's law firm, was active on the exchange for more years than anyone else

in the board's history.

He won a silver medal in the 1928 Olympics as a member of the American

four-man bobsled team. He also earned the rank of major while helping supply

war planes to Britain during World War II.

Granger, who was a board member of the Museum of the City of New York and a

trustee of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, was seriously injured in 1975

when a terrorist group set off a bomb at Fraunces Tavern in Manhattan's

financial district.
