Educated at Yale, Ernest Hickok Baldwin was the director of the Baldwin School, and the first director of the Saranac Lake Free Library in 1907, where a bronze plaque memorializes his service. He was the younger brother of Dr. E. R. Baldwin, from whom he may have contracted TB. (Dr. Edward Baldwin had told Dr. Trudeau that he used his microscope and knew he had it.) The Baldwins lived on Pine Street, near the Baldwin School.

Ernest Hickok Baldwin, president of the Saranac Lake Free Library and founder of the Baldwin school, died last Friday. The funeral was held from the Presbyterian church in Saranac Lake at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon.

Aside from his work as an educator he had probably done more than any other person in building up the quite extensive library on Main street in that village.

He was a brother of Dr. E. R. Baldwin, the most widely known of Saranac Lake physicians.
