ROLAND "BUNNY" HARRIMAN, younger brother of President Truman's former Secretary of Commerce W. Averill Harriman, was one of the partners, with Prescott Bush (father and grandfather of two U.S. Presidents) in Brown Brothers Harriman, the world's oldest and largest privately owned bank in America. The President of the United States is the Honorary Chairman on the American National Red Cross.

Founded in 1900, Helen Hayes Hospital is today the largest and most comprehensive physical rehabilitation hospital in New York state.
